After the sudden demise of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput a debate on nepotism and insider-outsider has started inside film industry. Most of the stars are openly speaking their experiences . There has been an increased hostility towards Bollywood, as the late actor’s fans believe he was wronged by the industry and deprived of opportunities. Several celebrities have since then spoken about this issue.
Actor Vidyut Jammwal, as an outsider, has also spoken about this debate and has a rather different take on it. Vidyut expressed his thoughts in an interview to BBC, a snippet of which he uploaded on his official Youtube video. He said, “It is difficult. Who said it is not difficult? You know how it feels when you’re not from the industry? Have you ever been in a car in India and there is a beggar knocking at the window? People like myself, who come from outside the industry’ are sometimes considered invisible. The only difference we need to make is not to consider other people being invisible.”
He added, “Some fields are watered by the river. Some fields are dead. Someone who comes from the dead fields can’t be destroyed. I am that person.”
