There are very few filmmakers left in the Bollywood industry that speak out against the industry itself anymore. Shoojit Sircar best known for his Deepika Padukone
and Amitabh Bachchan
's Piku recently took a jibe at the Bollywood fraternity. While he didn't name anyone, in particular, his comments came soon after a director made vile comments on the Hyderabad rape case.
"Bollywood pahle hum to sudhar jaye... phir gyaan de duniya ko... naitikta( morality) per gyan ya protest zaroor karein lekin sath me pahle apna filmy ethics chk karo..pahle hum apne duality ko sudhare," said the filmmaker in a recent tweet.
Shoojit's comment was widely appreciated by netizens. Bollywood fans also came out to speak in solidarity with Shoojit about the wider industry as a whole.
It isn't new for Bollywood to often take a stand at any news. But recently this has taken a bad turn, especially in the case of the Hyderabad rape case where Sandeep Vanga made extremely distasteful comments on the incident.
