New Delhi: South superstar Chiyaan Vikram’s latest release Cobra opened in theatres on August 31, 2022 (today). While film promotions, he was asked to comment on the latest ‘Boycott Bollywood’ trend.
Media quizzed Chiyaan Vikram over the ‘Boycott Bollywood’ trend affecting Aamir Khan’s ambitious project ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ and Akshay Kumar’s ‘Raksha Bandhan’ at the Box Office. Chiyaan Vikram very smartly evaded the question by saying, “I don’t know what language you are speaking. What do you mean by that (boycott)? I know what’s a boy. I very well know what’s a girl. I know very, very well, what’s a cot. But, I don’t know what’s a boycott.”
