#BoycottBollywood: We all are aware of the fact that the world of social media has ingrained itself into everybody’s daily lives. While technology has unified and driven people closer to each other, it has also fostered toxicity, as we can see from the numerous troll comments who target famous people for no apparent reason. And now, following the epidemic era, it appears that Bollywood has turned into a soft target as #BoycottBollywood begins to circulate on social networking sites every Friday when a new Indian film is released.
Bollywood did not have a successful 2022 yet as several films, including ‘Heropanti 2’, ‘Jayeshbhai Jordaar’, ‘Jersey’, ‘Bachchan Pandey’, ‘Samrat Prithviraj’, ‘Runway 34’, ‘Shamshera’, and others, were box office duds.
#BoycottBollywood: Bollywood Vs Tollywood
While the argument that south Indian entertainment is superior to Bollywood movies has gained a lot of attention, we can’t assert that Bollywood just produces subpar material. As per critic reviews, there were many excellent Bollywood movies that the public didn’t embrace, like ‘Runway 34’, ‘Jersey’, and ‘Jhund’, and several others.
If you look at the blockbusters, you’ll find that just 1% to 2% of the entire population visits movie theatres to watch movies. Those who post this kind of negative material on social media don’t visit cinemas. Additionally, some actors’ supporters spread unfavorable old films of other celebrities online to harm the movie’s box office performance.
There are a lot of #boycott keywords circulating on social networking sites as Laal Singh Chaddha, starring Aamir Khan, comes out the next Friday. In response, the actor added, “I want to convince everybody that this is not the case so kindly don’t ban my movies, take the time to watch my movies,” in a recent panel interview.
Trend Restricted To Bollywood Only
We may all acknowledge that Bollywood movies aren’t connecting with audiences, but the same is true of Tollywood and Kollywood, where movies like ‘Radhe Shyam’, ‘Beast’, ‘Acharya’, and others have severely let moviegoers down. In contrast, none of the other South Indian viewers are using the #boycott hashtags associated with their favorite actors or Movie Industry.
Well, to be truthful, it’s unreasonable and dishonest to reject a movie even until you’ve seen it.
