Audiences now realize that calls for boycott were baseless, says Pathan Director.

Sidharth Anand

Before Pathaan’s release, social media was flooded with boycott trends claiming that the film contains offensive content; director Siddharth Anand has finally responded.

The director says that, while it was annoying, he is glad that people realised after the release of Pathaan that the trends were false.

“To be honest, it was annoying because we knew there was no basis for it. We understand that when you make a slightly controversial subject and it gets picked up on, you get worried and hope that people see the right thing. However, there is nothing offensive here. All we were hoping is that let’s release the film so that even people who are boycotting will come and see that there is no merit in what they are saying. That is what happened.”
