While the CBI is busy investigating actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, netizens are working on proving a point. Some are sharing old videos of Sushant to slam Rhea Chakraborty, while others are sharing old interviews of the Raabta actor to defend Rhea. Amid all the hullabaloo around Sushant’s death case, an old interview of Sushant has resurfaced on the internet, wherein the actor had spoken about the existence of nepotism, and if he was treated as an outsider.
The interview dates back to 2016, and was conducted by DNA. Here’s what the actor had said…
Sushant On Being Treated As An Outsider
When Sushant was asked if he feels like an outsider, he had said, “If I feel like one, it is because I am one – it has nothing to do with the people here. They make me feel like an insider. I cannot complain of favouritism because all the films I have done till now and all I will be doing in the future are not the best offered to me, but the best offered to me at that time.”
Sushant Was Satisfied By His Work
Sushant had also said that he had no qualms about the industry, as he was getting to do all the films that he wanted.
“Irrespective of the situation, I would still do those films, so I can’t say I have been treated as an outsider,” added Sushant.
Sushant On Nepotism
The deceased actor had also addressed about existence of nepotism, and said, “Nepotism very much exists in Bollywood. If you are an insider, your success gets multiplied by 10 and failure gets divided much less but if you are an outsider, it’s the opposite.”
Sushant: It’s All About Love & Appreciation
He had further added, “They are willing to forget it once you are a successful insider. But I don’t think it affects you over a period of time. Mr Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan were outsiders once, but over a period of time, they were accepted completely into the film industry. Ultimately it’s about your love and appreciation of what you do.”
