Actor Sonu Sood recently expressed his views on the debate of nepotism in Bollywood. The issue reignited in the wake of the tragic demise of young actor Sushant Singh Rajput. Reportedly, he committed suicide and it is believed that he decided to take this drastic step because he was likely going through depression. The discussion is not just about nepotism but also problems like bullying and mental pressure that outsiders face in B-Town.
In an interview, Sonu said that people will talk about this for a few days and then move on to something new. Then a new outsider will come into the industry to become an actor. He too will struggle to get noticed and bag a film. Remembering the time when he was a struggler, as per the sources, Sonu added that he has the watchman of the Film City Rs 500 to let him watch a shooting. When he was doing so, somebody asked him if he was an actor, to which he said no he was just there to watch the shooting.
He further added that he felt that it was very easy to become an actor at that time. But it doesn’t happen like that in reality. Sonu also stated that no matter how talented and strong you are, it is very difficult to make a mark in the industry.
He also revealed the fact that there are hardly people in the industry who are outsiders and have become successful in the industry. He added that he has had his share of struggles and he stated that today he can proudly say that it made him a better and wiser man.
When he was asked about the rage expressed by Sushant’s on one section of Bollywood, Sonu reportedly said that it is not right to blame one section of the industry for someone’s death. According to him, it is very difficult for those individuals also to hear someone blame you for someone’s death. According to him, these are the people who have given life to a lot of people in the industry. One needs to respect that and let time decide what is right.
He believes that Sushant’s untimely death is a huge tragedy and left everyone stunned but people need to stay calm.
