In the last few months many Bollywood movies like From Aamir KhanLal Singh Chadha, Shahrukh Khan pathan,

To Ranbir Kapoor‘Brahmastra’ has been targeted as #BoycottBollywood trends on social media. In a recent interview, filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar, who directed films like Chandni Bar and Fashion, talked about the same and told that it is ‘just a phase’. Adding that audience anger towards the film industry grew after the untimely demise of actor Sushant Singh Rajput at his residence in Mumbai in June 2020.

In a conversation with Maniesh Paul on his podcast, Madhur said that the culture of boycott is not particularly new to the film industry and still watch movies only if the content is good. “It has happened many times before. Like in the case of Gangubai Kathiawadi, people saw it and it was good. I think it (boycott culture) is a phase. If the film is good and the content is strong, people Will go ahead and people have seen Kantara, The Kashmir Files, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, it’s not that people don’t go to watch movies.”

Madhur said that the culture of boycott started after the death of Sushant Singh Rajput, adding that perhaps the late actor was ‘ignored’ by the industry. He said, “I have seen that it (boycott) happened largely after Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise. Maybe the industry ignored him… He was from a non-filmy background and he came and They fought… It was very unfortunate, untimely.” Death and from there the anger among the public increased further.
