Tamil nadu based Pan Indian actor Dhanush who is pretty much busy signing movie after movie, became a subject to online criticism after a statement he made about the Oscar winning Korean film “Parasite” didn’t go well with a number of social media users. Dhanush who is currently active promoting his recently released Bollywood film “Atrangi Re”, named “Parasite” as an overrated film when filmmaker Karan Johar asked him to name one. Many had problem with the actor’s answer and a fan went on to share a video of director Vettri Maaran saying “All the actors are over-rated”
The victory of “Parasite” at the 92nd Academy award ceremony in the “Best feature film category” is one of the biggest moment in the history of cinema. The movie which revolves around a four members family trying to own a luxurious house, talked about the poverty in the South Korean region. In fact, the idea of the film is universal which could be connected by the people across the world.
The main themes of Parasite are class conflict and social inequality. Film critics and Bong Joon-ho himself have considered the film as a reflection of modern capitalism. Now, while interacting with Karan Johar for the show “Koffee with Karan”, to promote his recently released “Atrangi Re” film, actor Dhanush said that he feels “Parasite” as an overrated film. When Karan wondered why, Dhanush said that may be it is because of the hype people created for it.

“Dhanush is a reminder why we should celebrate directors instead of actors. As vetrimaaran said, All actors are overrated !” a twitter user said on seeing Dhanush’s answer whereas another one said “Dhanush calling Parasite as “overrated” could have been accepted if he had pointed out more authentic film makers. Instead he admires the likes of Rajamouli who is an epitome of “Overratedness”with his extravagant and over the top works. It does make him an hypocrite”
