‘I did not become part of any camp’ : Aftab Shivdasani

In a recent interview with ETimes, he spoke openly about his long film career. When Aftab was asked about the camps and groups in Bollywood, he said, ‘This groupism was called Campism around the year 2000 where people used to say that this actor is associated with Yash Raj, Bhatt or some other camp. This never happened with me because I worked with a lot of producers and I was friendly to everyone but close to nobody. ‘

I was friendly with everyone so I don’t have any enemies, and i have always kept myself away from this groupism and campism. ‘
