    Director Vivek Agnihotri lashed out at the Bollywood industry while praising small-budget films. The filmmaker was all praises for movies like Kantara and Rocketry: The Nambi Effect while taking a dig at Bollywood. While some netizens agreed with his tweet, others trolled him for the post.

    Talking about the same, Vivek Agnihotri took to his Twitter handle to post, “4 small films with no stars, no marketing or distribution support - #TheKashmirFiles, #Kartikeya2, #Kantara & #Rocketry earned approx 800 Cr at BO. Total cost of production of 4 films under 75 cr. Is Bollywood blind, deaf & dumb that they don’t understand simple maths and learn?” Take a look at his tweet.

    However, his tweet met with a mixed response from netizens. Some fans seemed to agree with him and also supported him in calling out Bollywood. One netizen stated, “Let them keep daydreaming that they r “stars” ….. Any film from #Bollywood or anywhere else showing #Hindu deities in insulting manner & abusing my religion will FAIL.” Another user said, “Also, particularly in Bollywood, filmmaking is not an art but rather a business. Films in Bollywood are star-driven rather than story-driven.” A netizen further said, “The industry that has been in constant connection to the underworld, terrorists & anti-national forces can't be dumb. It's just their arrogance & superiority complex that makes them present garbage & shit films before the audiences.”

    However, there were some netizens who also trolled Vivek Agnihotri for the tweet. One of the users stated, “Actually you don’t understand. You are a state-sponsored, subsidized, artificially hyped person whereas others are competent and self-made. Vivek, you will not be there once BJP is out of power, but Bollywood will always be there.” Talking about Vivek Agnihotri’s The Kashmir Files , the movie was a huge success at the box office and earned a worldwide collection of Rs 340.92 crore.
