Vijay, whose latest release Darlings, also faced boycott calls close to release, said he also finds the cancellation culture and boycott culture “scary.” The actor said he tried to understand but couldn’t find an answer.

He told India Today: “It can scare you. It’s gone a bit overboard now. I have a feeling that something you said 10 years ago could have been reprehensible, and some people raised their eyebrows. may be common practice at that time but in today’s time it is no longer frowned upon i feel like you cant be canceled for such a thing i go to a house in rajasthan for example and there are leopard and tiger skins to When that house was probably built it was quite normal to see dead animal skins… We have now understood how dangerous and cruel this is for nature and animals But people at that time, a family who had four generations of animal skins on their wall and didn’t raise themselves. Can we cancel them?”

Vijay went on to explain, “If they haven’t educated themselves and are out of sync with the current time, are we getting so bad for them that they’re being canceled in a rude way? These are thoughts I keep thinking about. I don’t know I really do have an answer. I think education and catching up with the times are very important. But times and trends change so quickly. A comedian who must have said something 10 years ago can now have those lines come back to haunt him.”

Vijay Varma played next to Alia Bhatt and Shefali Shah in Darlings, which hit Netflix on August 5. The film was about domestic violence and how a woman and her mother take revenge on the abusive husband of the former. After the release of the film’s trailer, some men’s rights activists claimed the film mocked violence against men and called for a boycott.

He will next be seen in Sujoy Ghosh’s adaptation of Devotion of Suspect X alongside Kareena Kapoor and Jaideep Ahlawat. He has also started filming for the third season of Prime Video series Mirzapur.
