Upcoming film, Takht has recently come under fire on social media. #BoycottTakht is currently trending on Twitter, with many users slamming the film and asking others to boycott the film. The controversy started when the film's writer, Hussain Haidary's controversial tweets went viral. Many are now claiming that Hussain Haidary's tweets were defamatory towards Hindus, which has led to a massive backlash against Takht.
As of now, Takht writer Hussain Haidary's Twitter account has been locked. However, screenshots of his allegedly anti-Hindu tweet have now gone viral on Twitter. Haidary's tweet contained phrases such as "Hindu terrorists", which have caused many Indian Twitter users to slam him, and his upcoming film, Takht. Not only are people boycotting Takht but they are also asking the director of the film to remove Hussain Haidary from the credits. Below are just a few of the enraged reactions to Hussain Haidary's Tweet.

Neither the director of Takht nor the main leads of the film have commented on this matter as of now. This is not the first time that Takht has made headlines. The film first started to trend online when its stellar cast was announced to the world. The main cast includes massively popular actors Bhumi Pednekar, Kareena Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Vicky Kaushal, and Ranveer Singh. Takht will release sometime in 2021.
