Ever since Bollywood star Sushant Singh Rajput’s shocking suicide, discussion has been going on about favouritism and nepotism in the industry. Fans are mourning the demise of their favourite actor and raising voice against the system. Many celebrities have been on the target of netizens and are being severely trolled on social media. But Bollywood doesn’t seem to learn anything as after Sushant’s suicide, another controversy happened which once again exposed the system of favouritism.
It all happened after Commando star Vidyut Jammwal and Kunal Khemu called out on Disney+ Hotstar for the royal snub that they did while introducing Bollywood Ki Home Delivery. Now, actress Divya Dutta has raised her voice and mentioned that she also feels that the bigger problem is favouritism.
“I don’t think there is anything called an outsider or an insider. One may come as an outsider to this film industry, but still join a group. So, when you look at these so-called groups, do they only comprise star kids? No, outsiders also are a part of the group. So, it is about favouritism, that’s is the word that should be used. And this exists everywhere.”, Said Divya, in an interaction with HT.
Divya also pointed out that there should be no judgments based on the people an actor is friends within the industry. And also highlighted that “their personal choice”.
“You can’t judge people for favouring somebody. That happens in every field. Everyone has their own journey. All we need to do is introspect, and be sensitive towards others.” She added.
On the work front, Divya has a few new short films, web shows and films with ace directors as Dibaker Banerjee and Umesh Shukla in the pipeline.
