Filmmaker and choreographer Farah Khan, earlier had slammed actors who had been posting exercise movies, throughout the novel Coronavirus outbreak. In a latest interview with senior movie journalist Rajeev Masand, Farah backed her assertion and mentioned the movies appeared “a little shallow”.
Farah throughout the interplay, but once more, talked about Bollywood’s response to the pandemic on social media. She claimed the trade doesn’t have a very good popularity and the movies weren’t serving to.
She added, “I want to apologise to everybody who got scared. I know I took off. Please workout. I walk one hour around the balcony every day. I was disturbed with the frivolity of the situation. It’s not a global party guys, it’s a global pandemic.”
She wished to remind everybody there are higher issues to do, like deep pondering, charity, serving to out neighbours, “There are other things you can do right now, there was a glut of everyone wanting to be seen, and wanting to be on Insta. It seemed a little shallow. We already don’t have a great reputation for being an industry that is deep thinking, even though a lot of people do so much good and contribution. It just seemed like everything was about ‘look at me, look at me,’.”
Farah even talked about her earlier “rant” and mentioned it wasn’t aimed toward anybody particular. “But it was just like, ‘Guys, this can’t be the only problem; figure out a way how to help your neighbours or send food to people.’ You can’t just be, ‘Oh my god, my gym is shut.’ My daughters are 12 years old, they are figuring out how to feed stray dogs. My son is stressed and wants to write songs about something that can help. So, you can’t flaunt your privilege at this time. I know you can but you should not,” she added.
