Bollywood is the biggest target of the common man on social media right now. Sushant Singh Rajput's suicide has triggered these cine-goers on losing out on talent and not giving due credit to actors/stars who are in the industry purely on their talent. Apart from nepotism, lobbying and camp-ism are two topics with which the bigshots of the industry are being targetted for. Since Sushant's suicide, a lot of celebrities have come out with their cases of being treated badly in the industry by certain individuals.
Sushant Singh Rajput's Sonchiriya costar lashed out on the basic value system in India. In an interview with WION, the Special 26 actor opened up on nepotism in Bollywood and how the industry has lost many talented individuals as a result of it. "Let me start with this, the world is not fair. I have been saying this since 20 years that as an industry we celebrate mediocrity. Forget about the industry, as a nation we celebrate mediocrity. Something is lacking somewhere in our thought process, our value system. When we see talent, we immediately want to ignore or push it away. This is the value system of ours which is so deplorable," he told the portal, reported, Hindustan Times.
Further, Manoj Bajpayee added that people need to rectify their behaviour as they will loose the respect of the audience. "I have said it before that this industry has wasted talent; so much that in any other country those talents who have not been given their due here, would have been known as the best actors of the world. But we don’t care. Firstly, if you don’t have talent then you have to be extremely lucky to get by. This is the system I am talking about. This is the cold value of this industry. I am not blaming anyone. I am a part of this industry. This is why I said in my past interviews that we have to look inward and rectify that. Rectify, or you will keep getting flak for it, cursed for it and will keep on losing respect of the common people," he said.
