Arjun Kapoor calls Boycott Bollywood trend ‘unfair’: Ab zyada hone laga hai’
Boycott Bollywood has been trending for quite some time. However, people started attacking the recent releases Laal Singh Chaddha and Raksha Bandhan and urging others not to watch the movies. Quite a few celebs came up and spoke about the new trend, even Aamir Khan and Akshay Kumar who are headlining the movies shared their views on the same.
Now, actor Arjun Kapoor reacted to the Boycott Bollywood trend and mentioned that they have been silent far too long and the industry needs to come together and do something about it.
“I think we made a mistake by being silent about it and that was our decency but people have started taking advantage of that. I think we made a mistake by thinking that our work will speak for ourselves. You know you don’t always need to get your hand dirty but I guess we tolerated it a lot and now people have made this a habit. We need to come together and do something about it because what people write about us or the hashtags that trend, are far away from reality,” Arjun Kapoor told Bollywood Hungama.

Arjun Kapoor rightly flagged the cancel culture as “unfair” and he said, “Ab zyada hone laga hai…unfair hai (This has started happening a lot now. It is unfair).” The actor added how the audience used to be excited about new releases earlier but now things have changed and for worse. “On Friday morning, the spark in people, the euphoria for a new film, the excitement in people, and the shine of the industry is coming down. Lagatar keechad uchaalte jayenge toh nayi gaadi bhi thodi si shine kho degi na? Humne toh kaafi keechad jhel liya hai pichle kuch saalon mein kyunkiwe have turned a blind eye on it (People have been tossing mud on us for years now and even a new car that will face that will turn muddy and it will lose its shine. We have been facing this for years now). We think that people’s perception will change after the film’s release,” said Arjun Kapoor.
