Speak Now
The boycott culture has shaken up the entire Bollywood industry. A slew of films in the recent past have become victims of this cancel culture, starting from Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha. In an exclusive conversation with IndiaToday.in, Tisca Chopra opened up about the same and said that it’s always the audiences’ choice to watch a film or not. She said that they are the final judge and jury. Tisca also appealed to everyone to watch her upcoming show Dahan.
Talking about the boycott culture, Tisca Chopra explained that it’s not just the actors, but a lot of people who work behind the making of a film. She said, “I don’t feel there is anything special about any actor at all. We are people who just go out to do our jobs. Part of our job involves other people. We are the ones who are seen on-screen, however, there are a lot of people who have worked behind it. Our responsibility is not just towards the writers or the producers, but to everyone who are involved in making the film. As performers, that responsibility is on our heads.”
Tisca added that the opinion of the audience matters the most. She said, “The bond with the audience is also important. I think they are larger-than-life. They are the ones who make us because without them, we are nothing. If they are boycotting our films, sure. Kuch to soch rahe honge na vo log, kyu nahi sochenge (they must have something on their minds). They are the ones spending their time and money to watch us so I respect what they want. If they don’t like it, they don’t.”
The actress appealed to the audience to watch her upcoming web series Dahan. “All I can do is appeal to the audience to watch our show because we have worked a lot towards it. If you dont like it anyway, you are the final judge and jury. If they are boycotting something, it’s their decision. We take it with humility, we will try harder. There is no culture as such. They just don’t like the content. I would say, please watch our series otherwise it will hurt us a lot. We have worked very hard to entertain you. Our DOP was newly married and he left his wife behind, I left my daughter behind to shoot Dahan. So many left behind their families to shoot for 60-70 days. It’s a lot of effort but the ultimate decision is with the audience and we respect them. Ap nahi dekhoge to hum hai hi kon? (who are we if you don’t watch our films). It’s like winking at something in the dark.”
On the work front, Tisca Chopra will be seen next in Dahan. Disney+ Hotstar recently announced that Dahan will start streaming from September 16. The show also stars Saurabh Shukla and Rajesh Tailang.
