Netizens woke up to another trend on Thursday morning — ‘Boycott Eros’.
Twitterati has demanded the boycott after the film production company posted “vulgar” tweets and memes on Navratri.
A section of the internet is upset with Eros Now for allegedly “violating” the religious festival of Navratri by “mocking” and “insulting” it.
Eros Now has been posting stills of Bollywood actresses from their production to wish people a happy Navratri.
On Day 1 of Navratri, they shared a still of Deepika Padukone from ‘Bajirao Mastani’ and wrote: “Mastani is all set for Day 1 of #Navratri 2020! Doesn’t @deepikapadukone look gorgeous in gray? #HappyNavratri.”
Sharing the alleged screenshots of Eros Now’s Navratri posts, one user tweeted: “Look at what type of post is posted by Eros Now on Instagram Regarding Navaratri. #BoycottErosNow”
