Vivek Agnihotri is again in news for speaking out about the hard reality of Bollywood and you must say the director has got a lot of guts to stand for truth. Since everyone is coming out to voice their opinion about boycott trends, how could the director stop himself from keeping his views?
We all know that Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor’s Laal Singh Chaddha are having a hard time at the box office. The movie, which entered theatres six days ago, has collected just Rs. 48 crores till now and is said to be the actor’s lowest opening movie. This will be his largest flop after the terrible failure of Mela in his cinematic journey.
Laal Singh Chaddha went through a lot of negativity before its release, and boycott trends were strong even after the release. From Aamir Khan to the film’s lead heroine, Kareena Kapoor, everyone connected with the film urged viewers not to boycott it as it is a wonderful, content-rich movie. She also said that the film carries the hard work of around 250 people and that people should not boycott it.
Vivek Agnihotri, the director of the super-hit docu-movie, The Kashmir Files, has now criticized the actress’s statement and severely criticized her request. He also pointed out the fact that Bollywood biggies boycott and destroy small movies.
Agnihotri went online on Twitter to question her, “When small films with good content are destroyed, boycotted by the Bollywood dons When they snatch their shows’ rights to run in multiple theatres when critics band together against their films, no one considered 250 people who worked hard to make it. #Bollywood. “
The director, in another tweet, mentioned: “Why does nobody speak out when Bollywood Dons boycott, ban and cause destruction to the careers of actors, directors, or writers? When common people in India realize the ego, absolute rule, and Hiduphobic nature, they will sink in hot coffee.”
Well, Vivek Agnihotri helmed ‘The Kashmir Files’ which was released this year, was loved and appreciated by an entire nation. The filmmaker could never have predicted that his film would be a box office success, grossing around Rs. 337.23 crores. If you see, the whole situation in Bollywood is beyond any predictions. Every upcoming film is being boycotted for some or other reason.
In this long time, the most recent movie which performed very well is Kartik Aaryan’s Bhool Bhoolaiya 2, while every other film struggled for high box office numbers.
