Amid 'Boycott Darlings' Twitter trend, Alia Bhatt says ‘we need to cancel cancel culture’

Alia Bhatt has made a lot of headlines this year, and has a few very interesting movies that are awaiting release. As her movie titled Darlings is set to come out on Netlfix, the actor has now opened up about a number of issues including cancel culture and the trend of fans calling for boycotts. 

Talking to The Indian Express, Alia said that she is okay with making mistakes. “Nowadays, you are getting trolled for sneezing, or breathing, or getting out of a car. So am I worried about that? No. Not at all. Am I worried about making a mistake? No. Not at all because if I don’t make a mistake, how am I going to learn? Or how am I going to question?,” she added. 

She pointed out that a person learns from their mistakes and that she is okay with being incorrect or making mistakes in general because she believes otherwise she would not be able to learn.

When the actor was asked about ‘cancel culture’, she said that we need to “cancel cancel culture” and that we also need to “boycott the boycotts.” A long list of Bollywood movies have come under fire with fans asking for their boycott. The latest in this list are movies such as Dhaakad, Laal Singh Chaddha, Shamshera and Raksha Bandhan. 

Alia, who was last seen in an extended cameo in S.S. Rajamouli’s pan-Indian sensation RRR, is now awaiting the release of Darlings, which starts streaming on Netflix on August 8. Directed by Jasmeet K. Reen, the black comedy also stars Shefali Shah, Vijay Varma and Roshan Mathew in important roles. 

The actor also has Brahmastra Part One: Shiva, Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani and the Hollywood film Heart of Stone in the works.
