After that, a section of Netizens started the Twitter trend of #BoycottNetflix. They expressed their fury over the scene where Lata kisses her interfaith lover in the temple premises. In his tweet, Gaurav Tiwari wrote that Netflix has shown kissing scene within temple premises. He wrote, “As per the story, a Muslim man is in love with a Hindu woman. But, why were all kissing scenes shot within the temple premises.”

Netizens demanded for #BoycottNetflix, and while one user wrote, “his is not our culture what Netflix is showcasing #BoycottNetflix,” another one wrote, “How dare @NetflixIndia showed this disgraceful act?? Is this for what temples are there?? Shameful!! #BoycottNetflix.”
