Rakul Preet Singh is one of the busiest actresses in today’s time. The actress took some time to make her footing in the Hindi film industry, but in the last few years she has proved that she is a Force to be reckoned with. In April itself this year, Rakul opened and closed the month with her releases Attack and Runway 34 respectively. While Attack also featured John Abraham and Jacqueline Fernandez, Runway 34 starred Ajay Devgn and Amitabh Bachchan alongside her.

Both Attack and Runway 34 underperformed at the box office, even though the latter was critically appreciated. And recently, Rakul got into a conversation with Bollywood Bubble where she opened up about the media coverage around films in today’s time and how the nasty language used to do that affects her. She shared, “Yes it does sometimes bothers me because people forget that there’s so much hard work that goes behind making a film. So, you know what bothers me is that if there is a product which is bad, it’s fine, please write it off. But when the product has got good reviews, it’s very unfortunate that the box office collection of a film determines if it’s a good film or bad.”

Rakul goes on to add that in the uncertain times that we are living in today, people need to support each other as everyone is trying to figure the way out. Now we are living in unfortunate times, some people go for certain films, for some they don’t go. The wave has completely changed as to what people are liking and everyone is trying to figure that out. Honestly, in the industry, everyone’s figuring out what’s working and what’s not working, what’s an OTT film now and what’s a theatrical film.”

While the actress is okay with the media criticising a film, what she feels bothered by is the language used to do that. “The thing is we sell negative and that’s what affects me. I feel that yes, please write that the collection of a film is low on day 1. But when it’s jumped on day 2, keep your headline limited to it. See the positive because if we don’t push good content, you can’t expect the film industry to experiment. There has to be some sort of unity for a good product. I am not saying be biased towards your product, but please let a good film get its due. Why are we nasty in writing? Talk about the positives and push them. See the effort and see the making. And I am not talking about Runway 34 specifically here, I am talking about overall any film that is good. Let’s appreciate good content. I just feel the nasty language should change. It’s very sad that we being the same unit, do this to each other,” she reflected.
