Mrunal Thakur reacts to calls for boycotting Bollywood: Achha kaam karo, log dekhne aayenge | Bollywood

Amidst so much uncertainty, any film that manages to set the cash register is appreciated. And when it gets good reviews also you are happy like Mrinal Thakur. His Telugu romance drama Sita Ramam is doing well, amidst a scenario where demands for boycott of films are common.

She says, “Luckily, it is not only the box office, but people are also liking it. Romance is an integral part of our lives, and I thought romantic films had stopped being made. The kind of appreciation and response it is getting is unbelievable. Nagarjuna sir said ‘You are beautiful, just fall in love with your character Sita’, to such an extent that his wife will scold him! I got compliments from these megastars, I don’t know what to say. Sometimes, thanks are less.”

‘Pan Indian Films’ is everyone’s favorite word in the industry today, what do they think is working in favor of South films and against Hindi films? Thakur takes turns asking, “What is a pan-India film first of all? This is the subject of much debate. I am really happy to be a part of this ‘Indian’ film, the fact that I have been selected to play the role of Sita. What works today is the content, the audience wants to see the food in action, nothing monotonous. I have been a part of both Hindi and South films. I completely understand that whatever you present to the audience has to be versatile and authentic, and that’s what happens.”

Recently, there have been calls to boycott not only certain films, but Bollywood, an entire film industry where lakhs of people earn their livelihood. Ask the actor if he thinks it is appropriate to call for such a boycott, and she replies, “Let me just keep up the good work, people will come and see. I believe in good work. There is a quote that says keep up the good work, the job of the people. I don’t know about the others, but whatever I am because it is my audience. Thank you for being honest. People should watch the movie, if you like it, you like it, if you don’t like it, it doesn’t matter.
