Nepotism and Favouritism are two of the major topics that have been making headlines for almost a month now. The sudden demise of Bollywood star Sushant Singh Rajput led to this debate.

Many actors and directors from the Bollywood film industry shared their views on nepotism and Favouritism in the industry. One of such actors is Shreyas Talpade.

Another actor who worked really hard to reach where he is now, is Shreyas Talpade. In a recent interview, Shreyas too stepped in and spoke about his journey with regard to the insider-outside thing that’s going on.

The actor started by saying, “Nepotism and favouritism are here to stay. But we can’t just focus on that while moving ahead. At least I don’t want to. I’ve never done a Karan Johar or a Yash Raj film, I’ve never approached them, nor have they showed interest in working with me. But that doesn’t make me any less an actor. It also doesn’t mean the end of my career.”

In spite of being an exceptional actor, Shreyas never really got a chance to work with the big banners of Bollywood. But he never cribbed about it, instead he worked even harder.

“Now I want to work with Aamir Khan and Salman Khan, too. But then I’ll only work with them in opportunities where I’m equally respected because I deserve that for the hard work I’ve been putting in, in my work,” he says.

Recollecting the old days when we had to struggle to get in Bollywood, he says, “My days of struggle when I didn’t have money to pay rent, buy a sandwich or take a bus to the studio, made me even stronger. Industry kids would never know how it feels to do everything on your own. Let them have their privileges. I feel sorry they don’t have a beautiful journey like we do.”

Shreyas then says that star kids get the initial push, that’s it. The rest everything is on talent and faith. The actor concludes by saying, “We all know it but take time to accept it. The sooner we do, the saner we become.”
