Arjun Kapoor reacts to boycott trends, says film industry made a mistake by being silent

'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.

Bollywood industry is going through a rough patch with a section of social media users demading boycott of certain films and actors. In a recent chat with Bollywood Hungama, Arjun Kapoor reacted to the recent boycott trend and said that the film industry made a mistake by being silent for so long and the decency was taken for their weakness. He further stressed that Bollywood needs to come together and do something very genuine about the cancel culture because whatever is written and whatever hashtags are used, they are far away from the reality.

'We tolerated a little too much. Now people are used to it,' Arjun told Bollywood Hungama.

The 'Ek Villain Returns' actor added that some agendas are turned into something big when in fact they don’t even exist.

'The last two months have been detrimental to the film industry because a lot of films have not done well. Do I feel it is a narrative created? No. I feel some films have not been good enough. At the same time, the narrative does not help either. People who are creating the narrative get more ammunition when the film is not as good,' he said.

On the work front, Arjun will be seen next in 'The Lady Killer' and 'Kuttey'.
