It is a well known fact that landing a leading role in movies and making a mark in Bollywood is never easy for an actor or actress. Several celebrities have pointed out that the film industry has been unwelcome to outsiders and has struggled to find a place in the movies. Now, former Bigg Boss contestant Sapna Choudhary reveals some harsh realities of the film industry.
Sapna is a Haryana-based dancer actress who rose to fame with her powerful appearance on Bigg Boss 11. However, her fortunes did not change much even after her appearance on the Salman Khan hosted a controversial reality show.
During a conversation with FilmiBeat, Sapna Choudhary said: “Bombay is a place where I think most of its people have their source of income through Bollywood and the television industry. Honestly, the auditions are nothing short of a scam; thousands of people come hoping to be kicked out; but in most cases, everything is preset. “
Sapna Choudhary added: “Speaking of unpleasant experiences, these can be anywhere there is a relationship between the boss and the employee. I have also experienced bitter situations; That’s an integral part of any work environment, but it comes down to how you handle them. But if there is someone who messes with me (casting couch), I am someone who can even file a complaint against the person at that time and here; I couldn’t wait to come out of the closet years later. “
When asked if Bollywood is welcoming to outsiders, Sapna Choudhary said: “Bollywood is not welcoming at all. Although it is an interesting observation I made about famous children who talk that it is not their fault that they are destined to be the favorites of the public and to be part of the great publicity films; they are not meant for any of that. They’ve been aggressively pressured, and even if their first movie doesn’t work at the box office, they have producers lined up to invest in them – that won’t happen in the case of a stranger. “
Sapna Choudhary added: “Outsiders don’t get a second chance; and if their first film fails, they bear all the blame for failure, and that may very well be their last film. But on the other hand, if I was a star kid, I probably would have said it’s not my fault as well. I’m destined to be on top, but star kids can’t deny that they have endless opportunities, opportunities, and connections. Outsiders have none of that; they are judged by what they wear, how they speak, and how well they can ‘speak English.’
Sapna Choudhary concluded by adding: “So there is a difference between heaven and hell between the outsiders and the insiders; and the industry is not welcoming at all “
