MUMBAI – ‘Boycott Kareena Kapoor Khan’ and ‘Taimur’s mother can’t be Sita’ trend on social giant Twitter on Saturday after reports that Mrs. Khan demanded Rs12 crore for playing the character of Sita [a Hindu goddess] in the upcoming project of Alaukik Desai.

Ever since it was revealed that Bollywood actress has been approached by director Alaukik Desai for the titular role in his upcoming project, 'Sita', netizens started to flock on Twitter to express disappointment.

Social media users highlighted a number of snags including that the 3 Idiots actor is the mother of Taimur Ali Khan to the fact that she is married to Saif Ali Khan who is a Muslim.

Some alleged Kareena to hurt the Hindu sentiments if she plays the role of Sita. Some even said that demanding a huge amount is way too much and some said that it is ‘against humanity’.

Several others highlighted the fact that Khan was being considered for the role of Sita while being married to a person of a different religion in real life. Others dragged her husband saying that earlier Saif hurt Hindu sentiments with controversial series Tandav, now his wife is repeating the same.
