Actor/comedian Ville Das Over the last few years, I have tried to explain why audiences have fallen out of love with Bollywood. Das speculates that social media is at the root of this shift in perception. The public has realized that they can be the star of their own story, and celebrities have struggled to feel relatable during the pandemic.
The comedian emphasized that everyone has become a “hero” with the introduction of Instagram Reels and other social media tools. On The Ranveer Show podcast, Vir Das said: Then social media happened and you became a hero. It was not limited to ten privileged people. “
He said Bollywood stars suffered the most when they tried to appear friendly on social media. I suddenly saw all the big stars struggling to be themselves on social media.”
He added: “Could you take my little piece of India and put our story, our point of view out there. And if you give me an escapism, I want Avengers, Baahubali, RRR.” “I want that level of escapism. This nonsense I can do myself”. When discussing the Hollywood scenario, Vir Das joked that whenever people wonder if Hollywood has lost its power, Tom Cruise will bring it back.
