One of the boldest and most outspoken femme fatale of Bollywood, Priyanka Chopra chose to open up on the burning issue of nepotism which has plagued the industry ever since its inception and to make matters worse got rekindled after the tragic death of Sushant Singh Rajput, who committed suicide. His lifeless body was found hanging from the ceiling in his Bandra apartment last Sunday afternoon.
Sushant had no support in the industry as his lineage wasn’t that lucid and in the process, he struggled with every passing day to ensure that he is fighting his way to the top through his flair and perseverance. His first success story was his debut film, Kai Po Che and it has been seven years since then, that the Patna-born star has belted out masterclass one after the other.
In a throwback video, Priyanka Chopra decided to come undone and in the process has said, “Nepotism and Bollywood go hand in hand. But there have been few incredible actors over the years that have been able to penetrate that and make a name for themselves and then create their own legacy. Which is also what I am also hoping to do. It was very hard. I did not know anyone. Everyone was friends with everybody when I joined the movie business. I was not very good at networking and going to the parties. It was a little difficult, but I kind of depended on the fact that I was not afraid to take on risky parts. I depended on the fact that I would do things and perform in my characters that when people come out of a movie they don’t recognise me they recognise my characters. I started working on the craft I started working on the art of it. Of course, I learnt dancing and made sure I was good at that.”
It is very rare that a character which is played by a less renowned star sticks to our memory. We have always chosen the limelight and we have believed in quantity more than quality. However, there always have been exceptions and Sushant Singh Rajput can be known as the face of this new revolution.
Choosing his own movies, calling out directors who were always trying to bring him down on his knees, protesting openly against nepotism in public platforms, The MS Dhoni biopic star has time and time again showcased that why his talent was his primary weapon.
Priyanka Chopra was also a struggling actor in the initial days, however, as days passed by, her social circle kept on increasing and she is now a force to reckon with in Bollywood. In fact, she even played a pivotal role in Quantico which was not an Indian series. Roles like these needs brilliance and definitely a lot of guts to have fared.
