Shoojit Sircar wanted some sanity but returns back

Shoojit Sircar

Shoojit Sircar did announce his social media sabbatical on June 22. He says – “If you want to be sane and concentrate on your work, you need to get out of that space. There was too much happening and the pandemic only made it worse. Irrfan left us (April 29). I was already disturbed. Then Gulabo Sitabo’s release on OTT drew flak and also from the film industry. I thought let me get out of it first.”

Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar further adds – “You can try to avoid these to an extent, but it does affect you. The kind of foul language people used, wasn’t apt for a public platform. I didn’t want to be in that muddy well and wanted some peaceful time.”

Shoojit Sircar also tells “In fact, I felt more relived and relaxed,” he continues, “I was getting all the necessary updates on the internet, TV and newspapers. There are many ups, but sometimes a lot of manipulative waste goes into your head via social media. That disturbs you.”

Shoojit Sircar says – “It should be up to you, what you want and what’s rational for you. Also, when you have so many followers, you need to be responsible. Especially the film industry… a lot of people look up to you. I can’t just say I don’t care it’s my life and I’ll lead it my way.”

He further concludes and says – “We want to release it in theatres. We had the same intention with Gulabo Sitabo, but the situation was different. Though the response was good, many were against us releasing it on OTT. But then, many 2020 films took the same route. So, we need to be open; we can’t deny that OTT has seen a change in consumption pattern.”
