As the world moves in further into the second half of 2022, we get to witness new and evolving trends that tend to keep us entertained for at least a month. However, a notorious trend that has gripped Bollywood in the current times is definitely an unpleasant one. The boycott culture claimed Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha and Akshay Kumar’s Raksha Bandhan and continues to leave a wreck in its wake.
While speaking against the harmful trend, many stars claimed that the cancel culture is not only harming the big names attached to the ventures but hundreds of daily wage workers whose livelihood depends on the success of the movie. Responding to the same, The Kashmir Files star Pallavi Joshi argued that such an argument is ‘wrong’.
In an interview with Hindustan Times, the 53-year-old said, ”To actually say that think about those 250 people who work on our films and what about their livelihood is a wrong argument. They have already been paid. After the release, it’s only the producer, the distributor, and the exhibitor that get stuck. Actors, technicians, all the daily wage workers have been paid by then.”
She also weighed in on the ongoing boycott trend and how she believes that films will be produced regardless. ”There won’t be a scenario where films will not be made. As long as films are made, people will get paid,” The actor further argued that the film industry will never shut down and called such a notion ‘utopian’.
