Since the death of late Sushant Singh Rajput, the insider vs. outsider debate in the Hindi film industry has intensified with nepotism and groupism at the heart of many debates. In a recent interview, Actor Rahul Roy shared that the industry is not a fair place and one must focus on profession and enjoy the process. He also spoke about young actors giving up.
Hindustan Times reports the ‘Aashiqui’ (1990) Actor saying that the world of showbiz is not fair. “Having said that, there’s a chance to be able to break through those walls and achieve something. Look at it as a challenge, not everybody can go through. With web platforms coming in, a lot of newcomers are also getting opportunities. But from the producers’ point of view, how many have the guts to really make something which is totally with newcomers? At the end of the day, the business is structured in India not on the content, but which star is driving it. And that’s been there for many years,” shared the actor.
When asked about young actors deciding to end their lives because they cannot not make it big in the industry, Roy shared that, “Anybody who wants to come into this profession, come with the right mentality and stability, to make sure, no matter what anybody is saying or trying to push you into a corner, you’ll be able to take that. Because that, unfortunately isn’t going to go away. With social media, people are only becoming more aware about it, which is a great start.”
