Darlings actor Shefali Shah has opened up on the viral boycott trend on social media, says its momentary and won’t last long

Bollywood is currently in a bad phase with netizens boycotting every other film. Several films such as Samrat Prithviraj, Laal Singh Chaddha, Raksha Bandhan, Dobaaraa, and more have been hit by the Boycott trend aka cancel culture. Darlings actor Shefali Shah has opened up on the trend circulating on social media. She is positive about shining days followed by stupid silly trends. Shefali Shah states boycott is a trend and it won’t last long. 

While promoting the upcoming season of Delhi Crime 2 the Jalsa actress shared her opinion on the trendiest topic hashtag boycott. Others have stated the issue has been blown out of proportion and it has no effect on the films. Shefali Shah thinks boycott and cancel culture are just a trend holding limited validity, it will end one day. 

Expressing her view on the boycott in Bollywood the actress said to India Today, “It’s a trend. I don’t think it’s long-lasting.” When asked about the notion that Bollywood is ‘dying’, the actor said, “I don’t think it’s possible. Films are a culture like cricket. It can’t die…it can’t. People have their point of view, they have their opinions, but there is also a lot of love and appreciation that we get. I think we should just take it in our stride and just say ‘we tried’ and we move on.”

She added, “The audience has always been prepared for good content, and that perhaps the industry underestimated their appetite. We got stuck in a rut of what was required of Bollywood, of blockbuster films.”

On the work front, Shafali received love and appreciation for her role in Darling alongside Alia Bhatt. She is now gearing up for the second season of the highly successful series Delhi Crime. She will now reprise her role in Delhi Crime 2 as Delhi Police DCP Vartika Chaturvedi. The crime drama series will stream from August 26th on Netflix.

Earlier, Shefali also urged directors to not give her mother’s role after she acted as Alia’s mother in Darlings. However, she has played a similar role in Waqt: The Race Against Time and Dil Dhadakne Do. But now she has strictly opposed taking roles older than her age and will do it when she is appropriate.
