There is a saying “There is no such thing as bad publicity. Good or bad, publicity is still publicity”. When #BoycottPK trended on Twitter last evening, a lot more people who weren’t interested in watching the film, were now curios enough to check it out at a nearby theatre.
But to counter the negativity on Twitter, Aamir Khan fans got together to trend #WeSupportPK. The response was better than expected as #WeSupportPK quickly toppled #BoycottPK on Twitter trends.
Below are some tweets that support the film and the #WeSupportPK.
