Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor has weighed in on the trolling against the Hindi film industry and how the industry remain silent which led to people taking advantage of them. In recent times, several films including Brahmastra, Shamshera, Laal Singh Chaddha and Raksha Bandhan have faced boycott campaigns on social media while the trolling against the industry continues.
EXCLUSIVE: Arjun Kapoor says Bollywood was ‘too decent’ and kept quiet against massive trolling: ‘I guess we tolerated it a lot and now people have made this a habit’
In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Arjun Kapoor said, “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. When we do films that do good at the box office, then at that time people like us not because of our surnames but because of the film.”
He added. “Ab jyada hone laga hai…unfair hai (This has started happening a lot now. It is unfair).”
He added, “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 kyunki we 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.”
Meanwhile, Arjun Kapoor was most recently seen in Ek Villain Returns with John Abraham, Disha Patani and Tara Sutaria. The actor will next star in The Ladykiller and Kuttey.
