Filmmaker Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri says it is only a few bad people who are responsible for the bad image of this Bollywood industry adding that it takes a lot of courage to speak against the powerful people like he and Kangana Ranaut have spoken.
Agnihotri opened up on the subject when he expressed his opinion on 34 Bollywood production houses and four film associations filing a civil suit in Delhi High Court against certain news channels for allegedly defaming the industry.
"Can the public sue Bollywood for destroying music, lyrics, language, art, creativity, social fabric, and culture of India?" Vivek tweeted.
Actor Gulshan Devaiah responded to his post about Bollywood destroying Indian culture, writing, "Careful Good sir!! By this logic some idiots might try to sue you too for some of your "earlier work".
To which, Vivek responded that he used to make crap movies but now has realized and left the company of Bollywood to fight against the corrupt system. "Absolutely. When like you, I was trying to fit in, I also made crap like your masters. But then I realised and left Bollywood and now I am fighting to reform this corrupt system. Pl join me in this noble revolution, Gullu, my favorite troll", he wrote in response.
In another tweet, Vivek also shared an image of the list of the production houses involved in filing the civil suit. The list includes almost all leading production houses of Bollywood including Yashraj Films, Excel Entertainment, Aamir Khan Productions, Red Chillies Entertainment, and Salman Khan Films.
"It's very easy for Bollywoodiyas to speak against #CAA or @narendramodi as they can't hit back but you need real courage and spine to speak against the powerful people in this list. So far besides me and Kangana, no one has spoken," he wrote.
While stating that around 5 lakh people work in Bollywood but not all are the same, it is just a few "rotten eggs" who have given the bad name to this industry.
"Around 5 Lakh people work in Bollywood. Even an idiot knows that the fight is not with them. It’s just few rotten eggs that have given the bad name to Bollywood. Now those few are ganging up against to those who want reforms. Besides censoring the media", he tweeted.
