Actor Sudhanshu Pandey says that it’s time the big actors and celebrities such as Priyanka Chopra and AR Rahman expose Bollywood for what it is. He says that this will go a long way in helping newcomers get a break in Bollywood.
“I think especially actors such as Priyanka Chopra and A R Rahman, who have both achieved big on the international platform, can speak up about Bollywood. They can expose the kind of pressure and bullying that happens in Bollywood, it is definitely very encouraging and people like them can really make a difference. I am hoping that people like them speak up more. This could lead to a different environment, a change in environment. And obviously, it could be very reassuring for the youngsters, who come here and get locked out, because there are certain people in the industry who don’t let anybody in from outside. I think breaking the shackles is very important and letting more talent from across the country into the industry is essential,” he says.
“Like I said, obviously getting a break in Bollywood is extremely tough and it’s almost next to impossible because outsiders are not really welcomed the way they should be in our industry. It becomes a difficult task for them and I think sustaining a career is even more difficult because once you achieve success, maintaining it becomes a bigger task, than achieving it.”
