“We all stick together, we are loyal. Whatever people might say we really stand together”
Actress Aditi Rao Hydari feels that Bollywood is an inclusive house! Actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s premature dying on June 14 has sparked a heated debate about “insiders and outsiders” and nepotism in Bollywood.
With a lot of toxicity in and round Bollywood and social media, how does Aditi maintain herself optimistic? “Just by believing that one day it will sort (out), also by knowing that we can do something about it. No industry is devoid of flaws. We are also human beings, we make mistakes, we have our flaws, we oversee certain things but there is a beautiful side to our industry too,” Aditi mentioned.
Aditi defined: “We all stick together, we are loyal. Whatever people might say we really stand together. People have our backs.” She mentioned that despite the fact that she is taken into account an “outsider” she doesn’t wish to consider that she is an outsider!
“People talk of outsider-insider. I can say there are so many people who I can call if I have a problem. They will help me even though I am considered an outsider. But I don’t like to consider myself an outsider. I feel that the industry is an inclusive space,” Aditi mentioned.
“Yes, it can be hard and tough for some time for some of us who don’t have family within the industry, but isn’t that so in any industry? So, why do we single out the film industry? I feel it’s up to us if there are certain things that need to be looked into, we need to pay attention, need to change that and stand together,” she added.
Aditi was lately seen within the digitally launched Telugu movie V, starring Nani and Sudheer Babu. The movie is streaming on Amazon Prime Videos. — IANS
