Anurag Kashyap talks about the ongoing boycott trend against Bollywood

There is one common thing between all recent big budget Bollywood films i.e, they all have to face the boycott trend for one silly reason or the other. Aamir Khan's 'Laal Singh Chaddha' and Akshay Kumar's 'Raksha Bandhan' are few examples. Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap who is gearing up for the release of his film 'Dobaaraa', recently shared his opinion on this trend.

Pointing out the absurdity of boycott culture, Anurag told News18, "I am amused because I feel these trolls want to boycott everything. There is a trend of boycott culture in this country. Itne saare log bol rahe hai boycott karo films ko, phir bhi log jaa rahe hai movies dekhne (laughs). I just thought we should also be in the trend. The boycott culture is a joke and I thought I also want to be a part of the joke and feel important just like others."

The filmmaker further shared how there is nothing new about this trend. He stated, "Boycott Bollywood isn’t new for me. This is affecting the people who haven’t faced it in the past. I have been getting boycotted for 22 years so the condition is the same for me."

Anurag concluded by saying, “Why is no one saying boycott Malayalam cinema or boycott Tamil cinema. Hindi is a universal language and all these faceless and nameless trolls who are bots just want to control the narrative of everything."
