With many filmmakers looking towards telling real stories, it seems many of the industry’s top actors are embracing these ideas. One such big name is Kajol, who believes this is currently the best time to be an actor.
Talking about how making these kinds of films is a positive development, Times of India reports the actress expressing, “It is a fantastic time for actors to be in the film industry because we are in a time when it doesn’t matter what you look like – where originality is preferred over fitting in a mould. I think that the mad passion to make films that one believes in still exists in Bollywood.”
She went on to say, “I am happy to see that finally that mad passion is economically feasible as well because the way cinema and audiences have changed, you actually have the ability to make films which are people’s thought put out there and not necessarily a cliched formula. There are films being made on interesting subjects. I also feel that films reflect society, and as far as influencing someone is concerned, I don’t think that one film can change a person’s opinion or thinking.”
Like some of her own peers, Kajol is also a star brood. When talking about the topic of nepotism in the industry when it comes to star kids, the actress explained, “I know a dentist whose parents are also dentists, likewise, we all know of someone in a business family who decides to take charge of his/her family business. I don’t see anybody crying over nepotism there.”
“People who succeed do not succeed because they are favoured, they succeed because of their hard work and talent. In our film industry, favouring someone doesn’t work – the ratio of failure is higher than the success ratio,” she added.
