Akshay Kumar's and Kanika Dhillon's old tweets resurface

'Raksha Bandhan,' Akshay Kumar's next big release, is causing a stir on social media, with some calling for a boycott.

The film will hit theatres on August 11, the same day as Aamir Khan's 'Laal Singh Chaddha.'

Kanika Dhillon, the screenwriter of 'Raksha Bandhan,' resurfaced on Twitter with an old tweet that some claim is Hinduphobic.

'Raksha Bandhan,' billed as the season's biggest release, stars Akshay Kumar and Anand L Rai.

Along with 'Raksha Bandhan,' Aamir Khan's 'Laal Singh Chaddha' is competing at the box office.

#BoycottLaalSinghChaddha is trending on Twitter, with some labelling the film's lead actor, Aamir Khan, as anti-India.

The plot revolves around a man who must first marry his four sisters before settling down with his girlfriend.

A section of Twitter has taken issue with her previous tweets and is now calling for a boycott of the film.
