‘We made mistake by being silent’: Arjun Kapoor takes on trollers about boycott trends

Apart from his best films, Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor is also known for giving a statement on any issue with impunity. Actors often give statements about something or the other. Now during a recent interview, he has spoken openly about the trollers boycotting Bollywood films on social media. He said that the people of the industry need to come together to end this trend.

In a conversation 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.”

Arjun further said, “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. However, this is happening too much now and it is wrong.”

The actor further said, “It is not right at all to boycott the film or to say anything directly, it is only a matter of making an agenda. At least after listening to the film, see whether all the things are presented properly or not, it is not right to unnecessarily emphasize the matter and add negativity. Because hundreds of people have made this film, so watch the film and go to the context.”

Taking forward his point, Arjun Kapoor said that people may not even know why the boycott is happening, but when things start, people get carried away in it. It’s better to watch the movie, put your thoughts and then decide the future course of things than to go blind. He also said that nowadays boycotting has become a trend.

Let us tell you that Arjun Kapoor was recently seen in Mohit Suri’s film ‘Ek Villain 2’. John Abraham, Disha Patani and Tara Sutaria were also in this film along with Arjun. Now the actor will be seen in ‘The Lady Killer’ and ‘Dog’.
