Saif Ali Khan slams Bollywood for not standing up to cancel culture

aif Ali Khan is one of the few Bollywood actors who don't shy away from sharing their honest opinion about stuff. The actor who was last seen in the film 'Vikram Vedha' alongside Hrithik Roshan, recently talked about the cancel culture which has ruined the box office performance of several films and slammed Bollywood for not standing up against it.

In a conversation with CNBC-TV18, Saif said, "This section of the people, who I think are (boycotting) I am not sure if it’s the genuine audience. Using a soft target, for example a bad movie, to say, ‘Ok let’s ban this or cancel that’… I also think it is really sad that Bollywood has not shown unity. Until we have that ability to take that step, we will never really know the truth of how effective this boycott culture is.”

Talking further about the topic, Saif said, "Cancel culture generally is scary, it is a worldwide phenomenon. But when your film is about to release and so many other people are on the line, it is just obviously simpler to keep a low profile and get it out of the way.”

The actor concluded by saying, “These people, who say ‘boycott boycott’, I don’t think are the audience. People like entertaining themselves, people like watching movies, so they are not going to not watch a movie. We don’t really have much to do in our country, you can’t go for a walk in the park or take a quiet boat ride with your kids. Entertainment is limited in cities like ours, so movies is one of those things."
