Lately, many movies have been criticized on social media. Movies like Akshay Kumar’s Raksha Bandhan, Laal Singh Chaddha of Aamir Khan, Vikram Vedha of Hrithik Roshan and Brahmastra of Ayan Mukerji are the latest victims of the boycott trend on Twitter.
In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Arjun Kapoor said: “I think we made a mistake by keeping quiet 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 have to get your hand dirty but I think we tolerated it a lot and now people have made a habit of it We have to come together and do something about it because what people are writing about us or the hashtags that are trending are far from reality. When we make movies that do well at the box office, then people at that time like us not because of our last names, but because of the movie.” He added that “ab zada hone laga hai…now. It’s unfair).”
He added: “On Friday morning, the spark in people, the euphoria for a new movie, the excitement in people and the brilliance of the industry comes 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 kyunki we’ve turned a blind eye to it (people have been throwing mud at us for years and even a new car that will face mud and lose its shine. We’ve been running into this for years ). We think people’s perceptions will change after the film’s release.”
Arjun was last seen in Ek Villain Returns. The film also starred John Abraham, Disha Patani and Tara Sutaria. He will next be seen in Kuttey and The Ladykiller. Kuttey stars Konkona Sensharma, Radhika Madaan, Naseeruddin Shah and Tabu. The Ladykiller shows Bhumi Pednekar next to Arjun.
