The ongoing Boycott trend aka the cancel culture has indeed been one of the most debatable topics recently, many actors from the Hindi industry shared their views on the same including Aamir Khan, and Akshay Kumar, among many others. While recently Bollywood actress Swara Bhasker shared her take on the cancel culture and said that it’s ‘hyped up’, mentioning Alia Bhatt’s Gangubai Kathiawadi’s box office success she said: “people went and watched it and loved it.”
Swara Bhasker Says Boycott Trend Are ‘Hyped Up’
In a recent interview with Zoom, Bollywood actress Swara Bhasker shared her take on the ongoing boycott trend, she said, “I don’t know how much boycott trends actually affect the business. Alia Bhatt got a lot of negative attention on social media after Sushant (Singh Rajput)’s tragic suicide, which was of course completely unfair — the kind of accusations that were being made about a lot of Bollywood A-Listers. At that time, Sadak 2 had released, it got a lot of boycott calls and negative publicity and it did very badly.”
Talking about Gangubai Kathiawadi’s box office success, she added, “When Gangubai Kathiawadi came out, the same kind of conversations started– about nepotism, Sushant, the same boycott calls, but people went and watched it and loved it. This boycott business is hyped up, it’s a small group of people who are driven by a certain agenda. They are hatemongers, they hate Bollywood, they want to destroy Bollywood, and are spreading malicious nonsense lies about Bollywood…And I think they are earning from it…We’ve enough evidence to prove that most of these are paid trends. There are also people who used Sushant’s tragedy for their own personal agendas and benefit.”
