Adipurush Saif Ali Khan Boycott Trend Absence of Unity In Bollywood

Saif Ali Khan raises his voice against the ‘Boycott culture’ aka ‘cancel culture'

In recent times, numerous Indian movies, especially films from Bollywood, have been affected by calls for boycotts from fans online. The strong wave of ‘boycott culture’ has affected a handful of Bollywood movies, including, Aamir Khan’s recent release Laal Singh Chaddha. Speaking about the ongoing trend on social media, Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan spoke against such trends and emphasised the importance of Bollywood taking a stand against it as a united front.

In an interview with CNBC-TV18, Saif Ali Khan remarked, “This section of the people, who I think are boycotting, I am not sure if they’re the genuine audience. They eely on a soft target, for example, a bad movie, to say, ‘Ok let’s ban this or cancel that’.” Apart from terming people who join the boycott trend as inauthentic fans, the ‘Vikram Vedha’ actor said that there’s a lack of unity in Bollywood. 

“I also think it is really sad that Bollywood has not shown unity. Until we have the ability to take that step, we will never really know the truth of how effective this boycott culture is. These people, who say ‘boycott boycott,’ I don’t think are the audience. People like entertaining themselves, and people like watching movies, so they are not going to not watch a movie. We don’t really have much to do in our country, you can’t go for a walk in the park or take a quiet boat ride with your kids. Entertainment is limited in cities like ours, so movies are one of those things,” stated Saif Ali Khan.

Despite opening to positive reviews, Saif’s previous film ‘Vikram Vedha’, co-starring Hrithik Roshan, failed to succeed at the box office. Up next, the Bollywood actor will play the role of the demon king of Lanka - Raavan, in the mythological drama Adipurush. The movie is helmed by Om Raut and stars Prabhas and Kriti Sanon in the lead.
