Bollywood actor Ranvir Shorey, who acted in many films like Bheja Fry and Jism, shared he has been treated as an outsider, in an interview with TOI.
In the interview, he shared, “I grew up on the fringes of the Hindi film industry. I have seen closely, since childhood, the politics that drives this business. As a grown-up professional, I have also borne the brunt of it. So you can say that I’m an insider, who has been treated as an outsider.”
Recently on exchanging heated opinions with Anurag Kashyap, he cleared out and said that Anurag is his friend and it was a mere misunderstanding. Ranvir also cleared out that he was referring to many bloggers, journalists, critics, actors, and filmmakers. As they have made an identity for themselves and are now trying to shut down someone who’s raising their voice.
Ranvir doesn’t feel that these debates on nepotism and groups will bring any change in Bollywood. They’ll be lucky if any such talks will remove contaminated branches of the structural system.
He also expressed his disappointment when ‘Sonchirya’ didn’t get its due appreciation. “ It’s always extremely exasperating and frustrating when a film suffers because of reasons other than the film’s own merit. I have always used those emotions to try to do better the next time.” Ranvir said.
