Manoj Bajpayee REACTS To The Criticism Around Ranbir Kapoor’s Animal, Says ‘There Should Be Open Discourse Without Calls For Bans Or Protests’
Actor Manoj Bajpayee has weighed in on the controversy surrounding Ranbir Kapoor's film Animal, questioning why some individuals find it challenging to move past differing opinions. In an interview with Pinkvilla, he expressed his stance, advocating for individual freedom while cautioning against obstructive behaviour. The 55-year-old further asserted the principle of personal choice, emphasizing that if someone disagrees with or dislikes a film, they have the option to abstain from watching it. However, he cautioned against actively impeding the film's progress, highlighting the detrimental impact such actions could have on creative expression and the industry at large.

In his own words, the Satya actor elaborated, "I am very clear, if many people disagree or don’t like a film, what’s wrong with that? The film is released, does its business, and moves on. The money goes into the producer’s pocket; let them take it; they invested in the movie." He further said, "If you don’t want to watch it, then don’t. If you disagree with something, it’s better not to watch it, but don’t create trouble for the movie. You will be only encouraging a bad notion by doing so, what if others hinder your work in the same way? There should be open discourse without calls for bans or protests."
