Bollywood actor Shreyas Talpade was touted to have a promising career in the films.
However, that’s now how it eventually played out for the talented actor and according to him very little is his fault.
In an interview with News-18, Shreyas Talpade spelled out Bollywood’s hypocrisy and how he had to suffer biases and rejections because he did not hail from a renowned film family.
“In cricket, scoring good runs is a parameter to know whether you’re a good batsman or a bad one, but unfortunately that is not the scenario in our industry. So, there have been certain things that haven’t really gone my way to a certain extent. But I think it’s my prerogative where I want to focus and what my priorities in life are,” said Shreyas.
Shreyas further says, “There are certain films of mine which bombed at the box office and there are certain films of certain actors which didn’t work but yet those actors keep getting work from big banners and you wonder how? My films bombed at the box office and certain people came and told me, ‘Yaar teri picture pit gayi toh agli picture ka price kum hoga.’ Then there are certain actors whose films bombed one after the other and yet you see them being signed by fantastic directors and you wonder why? This is the disparity that I don’t like. This is some kind of hypocrisy. Just say it in the face that you want that actor for something else and not for his performance. This is very unfair. You cannot have a separate set of rules for certain people and separate rules for somebody else.”
When will Bollywood learn to nurture the right talent?
