Numerous celebrities have acknowledged that Bollywood is experiencing a peculiar period, although many pan-Indian films are doing better in the Hindi belt. The most recent example is Nikhil’s Karthikeya 2, which has performed significantly better financially than Vijay Deverakonda’s Liger, his Bollywood debut. Days after Liger received boycott requests, the movie failed to make it over the opening weekend.

When questioned about the difficult times in the midst of the pervasive cancel culture, Javed Akhtar said, “It is a passing phase. It is very evident that it doesn’t work. If the film is good and is appreciated by the audience, it will work. If it is not good and not appreciated by the audience, it won’t work. I don’t think this kind of announcement of cancel culture and boycott works at all.”
