While a majority of regular Bollywood denizens are loving Delhi Belly and tweeting so, sources say that the said campaign is to try and push the film at Aamir Khan’s request.

A lot of them are even comparing collections of Bbuddah Hoga Tera Baap as opposed to Delhi Belly and stating that DB is far better than the BHTB in terms of collections as well.
Sources in the Bachchan camp are clearly crying foul over this. A lot of old timers in terms of journalists and other Bollywood folk are aghast at the kind of language used in the film and are attributing the same to the flops that Aamir Khan has been facing in the recent past like Peepli Live and Dhobi Ghat, both of which could not muster substantial collections to be termed as hits.
Bachchan loyalists are terming Aamir’s film as a below the belly kind of a movie and also terming the promotion of his film using Bollywood stars and their social media promotion as a below the belt attack on Bbuddah Hoga Tera Baap.
With Aamir having come out in the open against his arch rival Shah Rulkh Khan, it is not surprising that he is resorting to such an attack against Big B as well, purely to promote his film.
