Abhay Deol On Pathaan Controversy
Talking about Pathaan Controversy, Abhay Deol told India Today, “It is not something unimaginable. If you look at the world today, it is polarised. If you want to make an issue of something, you can easily do it. It is possible. Many people have done it before and will continue to.” Also Read: Singham Returns Director Rohit Shetty Injured While Shooting In Hyderabad’s Ramoji Film City: Report
“We do live in a polarised world. I think social media and technology have made information so fast, and it is also disinformation at so many levels. There is this tendency to reduce things to a headline. There is inconsistency everywhere, whether it be the media or people consuming that media. It is a volatile space, and that is an interesting subject, but do I believe in bans and cancel culture? It is more nuanced than that. I think banning doesn’t necessarily make it go away. It (the subject) goes underground,” he added.
However, the actor feels 50 years from now, people might look back at the cancel culture trend and laugh at the ‘stupidity.’ Besides Shah Rukh and Deepika, Pathaan also stars John Abraham. Also Read: Vicky Kaushal and Katrina Kaif Seek Blessings At Siddhivinayak Temple In Mumbai Today
