Anupam Kher has joined the number of celebrities who have spoken out about Bollywood’s ongoing cancel culture. Kher discussed social media boycott tendencies during a news conference in Shimla on Monday. He believes that certain trends will have little effect on an excellent picture. “Every day, I see various patterns. But, in terms of the pattern you’re referring to, I don’t believe a film fails because of boycotting. Previously, individuals would instigate disputes in order to keep it running. Great films find ways to work “Kher said.
He also appeared to be mocking Aamir Khan, whose last film, ‘Laal Singh Chaddha,’ bombed at the box office. The film encountered a huge boycott movement ahead of its August 11 release. While Kher feels that a boycott movement cannot significantly affect a film’s income, he also mocked Aamir for the film’s failure by alluding to his inflammatory remarks regarding India.
“India is the world’s most tolerant country. We have freedom of opinion, and we should all appreciate it. As a responsible individual, one should exercise caution in what they say. You have millions of followers. When you make a casual remark about the country, it might occasionally backfire “Kher emphasised this point.
“I also want to say that I have enormous respect for Aamir Khan as an actor,” he continued. In an interview in 2015, Aamir Khan stated, “Our society is quite accepting, yet there are some who propagate ill-will.” His wife, Kiran Rao, also made news when she said she pondered fleeing the country for the sake of their children’s safety.
