However, considering the way Pk maintained the nonchalant plot of an alien landing on earth, everyone was of the belief that the film will stay away from major controversies. But quite contradictory to that, there has been a sort of battle on Twitter among religious guardians and the modern youth over the way Pk commented on religion. In fact, many people have felt offended over certain scenes in the film, like Aamir Khan in his search of God going to shrines of different religions and mixing up the rituals and Aamir chasing an actor dressed like Lord Shiva. Hence some of people who saw the film have taken to Twitter to boycott the film and have been trending #BoycottPK on the micro-blogging site. Let's take a look at some of them who seem mighty »

Earlier plans to 'surprise' Salman Khan with the first look of his new film Bajrangi Bhaijaan on his birthday on December 27 have fallen through. Informed sources say director Kabir Khan decided it is 'too early' to reveal the first look in December. Says a source, "The film releases on July 16 for Eid.
