Bestselling author Chetan Bhagat launched a tirade against snobbish film critics on Twitter. He admonished the reviewers to shy away from trenchant criticism and offer only ‘fair and sensible’ reviews for deceased actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s latest release- ‘Dil Bechara’.
“Dear stars. You make tens, maybe hundreds of crores. A country of a billion people loves you. Isn’t that enough? Do you really need validation from phoney, English speaking evil critics, who caused mental health issues leading to a star’s death? Stop patronizing them, please,” the author tweeted.
“Sushant’s last film releases this week. I want to tell the snob and elitist critics right now, write sensibly. Don’t act over-smart. Don’t write rubbish. Be fair and sensible. Don’t try your dirty tricks. You have ruined enough lives. Now stop. We’ll be watching”, he added.
But the tweet eventually backfired and the netizens started to take a dig at the author where some were still in support of him.
According to a recent column, he had penned down his thoughts about the new aspirants giving up hope.
He believes that abusing some stars for Sushant’s death is not fair. However, he thinks that the reason for the death of the Dil Bechara actor caused so much uproar because it represents the death of Indian aspirations.
Similar to Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Sushant’s rise in Bollywood represented a new inspirational India. Chetan Bhagat worries whether the loss of Sushant will lead to Indian youth losing hope and aspiration.
