Director Jude Anthony Joseph shared in an interview with Mathrubhumi News that his latest movie '2018' was not an investigative series to find out the truth about the Kerala floods. He was reacting to criticism of the movie, mostly by Left supporters on social media, that the film undermined the role of government machinery in fighting the natural disaster. They allege that Jude did that intentionally.

Jude acknowledged that those who criticise his work after watching it have every right to do so. However, he also noted that there have been many cyber attacks on him, which have become a habit. Jude explained that he still managed to handle everything even when he felt incompetent.

Regarding criticism of his work, Judd said that people can say anything they want about him. People should only watch his films if they find them okay or enjoyable.

Jude said that he gets upset when he doesn't get to take a scene at the time he should. He also mentioned that he still feels like a nineteen or twenty-year-old inside, despite being a husband and father of two. He also mentioned that being an actor or director has not affected him.

Jude talked about how social media posts and comments can hurt, especially when his family reads them and worries. "Whenever I don't like something, I say it. Social media posts and comments are feelings from that given moment. Sometimes it's stupid," he said.

Jude said that people will latch onto words or expressions used, even if they don't convey the intended meaning, and doing one wrong thing can overshadow a hundred right things. Jude expressed a desire to avoid harming anyone as much as possible and regretted that he still struggles with this behaviour at 40.
