Since Sushant Singh Rajput’s sad demise, Bollywood has been receiving backlash for its toxic culture of nepotism. According to sources, Sushant was depressed as he was not getting the spotlight in Bollywood that he should have gotten and also lost a lot of movies. This has created a huge discussion on social media. Post this many Bollywood celebs have opened up about their experience on nepotism and how many good talents as well as films not given the same potential as star kids got in the industry.
Now recently Bollywood actor Abhay Deol opened up about his experience in the industry. Abhay opened up as to how Zoya Akhtar’s Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara was a story about three friends who take an adventurous trip to Spain and how they find their way back to each other’s life and also figure out their own lives and struggles. The film starred Hrithik Roshan, Abhay Deol, Farhan Akhtar, Katrina Kaif and Kalki Koechlin. But apparently Farhan and Abhay Deol were “demoted” from the main leads to “supporting actors” by the awards shows, shares Deol
In his latest Instagram post, Deol, known for his unfiltered and honest opinions, wrote how according to the industry’s logic, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara was a love story of a boy and a girl instead of being a story about life and friendship. Sharing a still from the film, Abhay Deol wrote, “I would like to mention that almost all the award functions demoted me and Farhan from main leads, and nominated us as “supporting actors”. Hrithik and Katrina were nominated as “actors in a leading role”. So by the industry’s own logic, this was a film about a man and a woman falling in love, with the man supported by his friends for whatever decisions he takes.”
