The heartbreaking death of on-screen character Sushant Singh Rajput has started a progressing banter in Bollywood with respect to nepotism, bias, and all the manners by which the business is a long way from inviting newcomers.
Taking to web based life, on-screen character Abhay Deol is making some noise about the preference he confronted while all the while getting out honor appears.
In a post on Instagram, the entertainer alluded to his 2012 film Shanghai and how it managed fundamental defilement in legislative issues up front.
“Extremely relevant today. Looks like these days one could make a film about the corrupt practices of Bollywood!” he said.
“By the way, not sure if the current outrage will give rise to an independent Hindi film and music industry, without the unoriginal tag of “Bollywood”, but it sure feels good to hear loud voices from within the industry, risking their careers for the bigger “picture” (pun intended)”
“I would like to mention that almost all the award functions demoted me and Farhan from main leads, and nominated us as ‘supporting actors’. Hrithik and Katrina were nominated as ‘actors in a leading role’”.
So by the industry’s own logic, this was a film about a man and a woman falling in love, with the man supported by his friends for whatever decisions he takes.”
“There are many covert and overt ways in which people in the industry lobby against you. In this case it was shamelessly overt. I ofcourse, boycotted the awards but Farhan was ok with it #familyfareawards,” he ended.
