Senior actor, Naseeruddin Shah, opened up about the insider-outsider debate. Since the death of Sushant Singh Rajput, the ugly politics of name-calling people from the industry has started. Resultant, the nepotism debate is also ignited. The actor said that Sushant’s demise is sickening. However, some people are taking it as a chance to give out their frustration about the Bollywood industry. According to him, the insider-outsider debate is sheerly baseless.
India Today interviewed Naseeruddin Shah. In result, the actor voiced his views about people puking their frustration for the commercial industry to the press. He was quoted as, “It is absolutely sickening. I have not followed it. I felt deeply grieved when the young man died.”
Naseeruddin Shah on Nepotism Debates:
He added, “I did not know him but he had a bright future and it was a waste of a life. But I did not bother to follow the nonsense that’s being spouted by a whole lot of people. Every person who has any little frustration in his mind, in his heart, about the commercial industry, has been vomiting it out to the press. It is absolutely disgusting. I mean, keep these complaints to yourself, no one is interested.”
Taking jibe at half-educated people, the veteran actor said, “No one is interested in the opinions of some half educated starlet who decides to take it upon herself to, you know, get justice for Sushant. If there is justice that needs to be done, I think we need to have faith in the process of the law and if it is none of our business, I think we should not concern ourselves with it.”
The people on the internet are blaming stars and their kids for making the industry ugly. Consequently, the actor is angered. He said, “I don’t understand this insider-outsider nonsense that’s going on. I mean, it’s a whole lot of rubbish and we should be put an end to this, it’s bulls***. Why would not I, who have had a secure happy life as an actor, encourage my son to go into the same profession? Would not an industrialist do it, would not a lawyer do it, would not a doctor not do it? Would not anybody do it? You mean to say that Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s descendants should not have become singers?”
However, the insider-outsider debate doesn’t seem to rest any time soon. Tell us about your views on what Naseeruddin Shah said.
