फिल्म अभिनेता #ArjunKapoor का जनता को धमकाना ठीक बात नहीं है। जनता को धमकाने की जगह अपने अभिनय पर ध्यान देना चाहिए।— Dr Narottam Mishra (@drnarottammisra) August 17, 2022

Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor recently shared his views on Bollywood films facing social media boycott and asserted that he feels they made a mistake by being silent for so long. The actor was badly trolled by several netizens for his remarks. Now, BJP leader and home minister of Madhya Pradesh, Dr. Narottam Mishra has slammed Arjun for the same. Calling him a 'flop actor', Narottam advised that Arjun should focus on his acting skills instead of threatening people.
Addressing the media at a recent event, the Minister on being asked about Arjun’s recent comments on the boycott trends, stated that he should focus on acting. In a viral video, Narottam could be heard saying in Hindi, "Ab koi flop actor janta ko dhamakaye yeh to mai acha nhi manta. Agar janta ko dhamkane ki jagh vo apni acting pe dyaan de toh zyada acha hai. (Instead of threatening people, he should rather focus on his acting. I wanted to ask that all the actor targetting Hinduism in their films and supporters of the Tukde-Tukde gang should not try to threaten the public).

The Madhya Pradesh Home Minister posted the video on his Twitter handle with the caption, “Film actor #ArjunKapoor threatening the public is not a good thing. Instead of threatening the public, focus on your acting. Why do the supporters of Tukde Tukde Gang who target Hinduism in their films threaten the public on Boycott.”
In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, the Ek Villain Returns actor said about the boycott trend, “I think we made a mistake by being silent for so long. Our decency was taken for our weakness. We always believe in ‘let the work speak for itself, all this doesn’t matter. We tolerated it a little too much. Now people are used to it.” Arjun also pointed out that the film industry needs to come together to end this issue.
A few days ago, netizens started a hate and boycott campaign against Aamir Khan’s film Laal Singh Chaddha. In fact, Hrithik Roshan’s upcoming film Vikram Vedha also faced a boycott trend after he came out in support of Khan’s film.
