Twitterati needs to take a chill and find something useful to do other than #BoycottBollywood. Seriously, they just have too much time on their hands!
There's so much that probably deserves your attention today, like the changing climate, which is clearly visible, and political agendas, among other issues affecting the population at large. But no, as a young generation who loves to debate and dabble in every topic, we want to simply focus on things that aren't a big deal. And rai ka pahad koi Twitterati se banana sikhe because it's so easy for anyone to post their opinions online today. But as a generation to whom this technology comes easily, we don't understand its responsibility. Since khali dimaag shaitan ka ghar hota hai, these days it has Twitter in its hands, and thanks to cancel culture #BoycottBollywood is born, which is honestly a waste of time!
Aamir Khan's Laal Singh Chaddha was already going through the wrath of boycott when Alia Bhatt's Darlings also came under its line of fire. And tbh, both of these films are boycotted for reasons that make no sense. For Laal Singh Chaddha, there's talk of Aamir Khan being 'anti-national, anti-Hindu', and more such things and for Darlings for it's 'toxic feminity' as domestic violence against men is not funny but rather very real. The verdict on both films has been given without watching either of them; hence, not understanding the context of either of these films. This entire trend of Boycotting Bollywood focuses on being petty in the name of being righteous. But it definitely, poses this question - have we become so irrationally intolerant that we need a culture that reflects it? After all, it's just a film, if you don't want to watch it, nobody's putting a gun to your head. But at the same time, you can't shy away from the fact that cinema moves culture.
