Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor, who was last seen in Ek Villain Returns, reflected on the rising ‘boycott’ trends on social media and said that the industry had turned a blind eye to it and now things have gone bad.
Arjun Kapoor said in a recent interview, “I think we made a mistake by being silent for so long. Our decency was taken for our weakness. We always believe in ‘let the work speak for itself, all this doesn’t matter. We tolerated it a little too much. Now people are used to it.”
While BJP minister from Madhya Pradesh, Dr Narottam Mishra reacted to the same calling out Arjun. Mishra said that Arjun should focus on acting rather than ‘threatening the audience’. Mishra tweeted, “Film actor #ArjunKapoor threatening the public is not a good thing. Instead of threatening the public, focus on your acting. Why do the supporters of Tukde Tukde Gang who target Hinduism in their films threaten the public on Boycott (sic)?”

फिल्म अभिनेता #ArjunKapoor का जनता को धमकाना ठीक बात नहीं है। जनता को धमकाने की जगह अपने अभिनय पर ध्यान देना चाहिए।— Dr Narottam Mishra (@drnarottammisra) August 17, 2022
