Bollywood is one of the most fast moving and competitive industries in the world. You will also find the biggest population of actors employed in this industry. If you look at the registered numbers of CINTAA and other bodies who have actors registered under them, then the numbers are somewhere in lakhs. Yes, that is a whopping number. But looking at the population size of India, such numbers were expected in the first place.
Also, there are a lot of benchwarmers here. There are many actors who don’t even make a cut to the prominent star cast in many movies. Also there are some who never even rise from the ranks of junior actors and have to remain there forever. Then there are those who are a hit and a miss and are sidelined for the rest of their lives. There are not many filmmakers who would risk their movies with these three classes of actors.
In such day and age, when verbal commitments are like birds from the mouth and they bear no value, Red Chillies Entertainment and SRK have managed to stand out from rest of the pack. They are giving optimum chances to these three classes of actors who are brilliant in their work and are not getting the desired chances.
Just look at the star cast of Bard of Blood and the Class of 83. SRK and his production houses are doing their bit in employing such hardworking actors who have slogged and honed their craft.
Class of 83 has Bobby Deol , Anup Soni, Joy Sengupta, Vishwajeet Pradhan, Bhupendra Jadawat, Hitesh Bhojraj, Sameer Paranjape, Ninad Mahajani, Prithvik Pratap. Each of them has delivered a power-packed performance.
Similarly Bard of Blood has Emraan Hashmi, Vineet Kumar Singh, Sobhita Dhulipala, Danish Husain, Kirti Kulhari as Jannat Marri, Abhishekh Khan, Ajay Mahendru, Asheish Nijhawan, Shamaun Ahmed, Jaideep Ahlawat, Rajit Kapur, Shishir Sharma, Amit Bimrot, Sohum Shah, Shruti Marathe, Sahiba Bali, Kallirroi Tziafeta, Nikita Sharma, Tanveer, Harshvardhan Singh and Ankit Hans.
