Only a day ago, Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar met UP CM Yogi Adityanath in the city. During the meeting, Akshay Kumar shared his enthusiasm for UP’s future film city and urged CM Yogi Adityanath to watch his film Ram-Setu, which was released on 25 October 2022.
Now, actor Suniel Shetty took the opportunity to share how to encourage audiences to come back to theatres. He called the hashtag “Boycott Bollywood” was going on. It can stop if UP CM Yogi ji will talk about it, people will listen. He said Today If I am Suniel Shetty, it is because of Uttar Pradesh and fans from there. It is important to spread the word that we’re doing good work. There is a stigma on us and that pains me because 99% of us are not like that. We don’t do drugs the whole day and do the wrong work. We are associated with good works. Everywhere has one rotten apple, but just because of that we can’t call the whole industry rotten. Today, people think that Bollywood is not a good place to work, but we have made such good films too. I have been part of many good films like Border. If anything connects Bharat (India) with other countries, that is our music and our stories. We have to work together to get rid of this hashtag trend. We have to figure out a way to stop this trend. So, CM Yogi Ji if take the lead and talk to our beloved Prime minister Narendra Modi about this matter, it will make a huge difference.

Actor Suniel Shetty also talks about how the Film City in Uttar Pradesh should encourage locals to become a part of it & provide them with employment opportunities. He also stated that they should focus on creating actors and utmost importance to create technical teams as well.
The #BoycottBollywood trend started after actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise in June 2020, which ignited discussions on nepotism in the industry. The hashtag reared its ugly head 2 years later ahead when many big budgets movies released in Bollywood such as Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chadhha, Akshay Kumar’s Ram Setu, Vijay Deverkonda & Ananya Pandya starrer Liger, Ranbir Kapoor’s Bharmastra: Part one- Shiva, Shahrukh Khan’s upcoming movie Pathan is in the line of fire.
