The boycott lobby has been targeting Bollywood in the past few years. In fact, the #BoycottBollywood trend also planned to target Shah Rukh Khan’s latest release Pathaan. However, the spy-thriller turned out to be a blockbuster. A bunch of celebs have come forward and shared their views on the issue. Joining the list, Sonu Sood has also spoken about the matter.
Sonu Sood talks about portrayal of “soft communities” in Hindi cinema and Boycott Bollywood trend; says, “People are more sensitive”
In a conversation with ANI, Sonu was asked about the “wrong portrayal of Hindus” in Hindi movies. In his response, he said that “people are more sensitive” while questioning the intentions of those who were trying to encourage boycotts. Talking about the same, the actor asserted, “I think people are more sensitive these days, or they are pretending to be, so that’s a thing. People who boycott films.. I don’t how wise that is, or how genuine, or how much they actually mean it. Without watching a film, if you are asking for a boycott, this is also not fair,” in Hindi.
Explaining his take further, the Simmba actor added, “You can reject a movie if it is not good, but giving your opinion without watching, I feel that is not right. You should give others a chance to tell your story, and we will decide if we want to listen to it or not.”
Speaking of the portrayal of “soft communities” on the big screen, Sood said, “People are more sensitive now so they will not accept it. You have to be responsible as to how you convey your message. You can’t say that this is how I want to say it, and this is what I will show it, that time has passed.”
Coming to the professional front, the 49-year-old actor was last seen in Akshay Kumar’s Samrat Prithviraj. He will be next seen in Fateh along with Jacqueline Fernandez.
