For quite a long time there have been debates and conversations about the Bollywood mafia and the terrible nepotism that runs in Bollywood. We have witnessed Boycott Bollywood trends as well.
However, some people have talked about it and created a public issue, but some managed to stay away from the limelight and media to call the goons out. But there are several incidents and casual talks about the heinous moves pulled over them.
Today we will tell you about Some of the actors who talked about how the Bollywood goons affected them and their careers in Bollywood
Salman Khan Ruined My Career- Abhinav Kashyap
Abhinav Kashyap said that actor Salman Khan ruined his career in the industry. Even before he gets to taste success in Bollywood, Salman and Arbaaz Khan acted as a huge barrier to them. Abhinav Kashyap posted this on Facebook, disclosing the ugly side of Salman Khan.
“Mr. Salman Khan and his family sabotaged the release of the film and got their PROs to run a sustained negative smear campaign against me and my film Besharam before release. This scared the distributors from buying my film. Reliance Entertainment and I were capable and courageous enough to release the film ourselves but the battle had just begun. My enemies, which there were many ran a sustained negative Trolling and badmouthing campaign against the film till the Box Office of my film collapsed.”
Manoj Bajpayee revealed that the industry does not respect outsiders
In a previous interview with Wion Bajpayee said that the industry is wasting talent, he said,
“I have said it before that this industry has wasted talent; so much that in any other country those talents who have not been given their due here.”
He further stated,
“How come I survived in this industry, an industry that doesn’t have respect for people from outside? So much so, if a good film is getting bad box office then forget about the industry as they will anyway criticize you whether you make a good film or a bad film, whether you give a good performance or a bad performance — the mainstream critics and the trade analysts will jump on it and they will try to prove that it’s a bad film because the box office is not that great.”
Kangana Ranaut is the only actress whose name gets associated with controversies now and then. Maybe because she won’t hesitate to speak up about sensitive issues. She always has been very transparent about Bollywood and its favoritism. She revealed that Mahesh Bhatt threw a slipper at her cause she refused to do his film and Aditya Chopra threatened her because she rejected to do a film with Salman Khan.
AR Rahman revealed that a gang is not letting him bag Bollywood projects
Late actor, Sushant Singh Rajput ‘s film Dil Bechara had AR Rahman as the lead singer for some of its songs. But we hear a lot of rumors that say AR Rahman so-called, ‘refuse’ to do big projects When asked about the same, AR Rahman replied,
“I don’t say no to good movies, but I think there is a gang, which, due to misunderstandings, is spreading some false rumors.”
He mentioned the word, ‘gang makes it more clear for us to believe that there does exist Bollywood Mafias who create drama regarding the big personalities.’
Raveena Tandon said that there are people in the industry who plan your failure
Raveena revealed Bollywood allegedly has a girl gang and camps that plans on the downfall of actors in the industry.
She also said she has been a part of the effect caused by the gangs of Bollywood and since now it doesn’t affect her, she openly reveals everything about it. In conversation with Hindustan Times Raveena revealed,
“There are bad people who do plan your failure; I’ve been through it. They are the ones who would want to see you down and removed from films. It’s literally like classroom politics. They play games.”
Amit Sadh revealed that he was banned by the TV industry for being outspoken
Amit was banned by the TV industry just because he was outspoken and spoke out some very harsh truths. Talking to Bollywood Hungama during an interview he said,
“They called each other and said isko kaam mat do. Toh phir maine kaha, ‘Achcha? Nahi de rahe ho? Toh phir main picturon mein jaaunga.”
‘Music Mafia’ apparently crushes singers and talents in the industry disclosed by Sonu Nigam. In a previous interview, he said that the music mafia is allegedly bigger than the whole Bollywood industry itself. New and old talents get manipulated by the mafia and sometimes they get forced.
He even shared a couple of videos on Instagram accusing T-Series and Bhushan Kumar of being the music mafia. Singers like Kailash Kher, Monali Thakur, Kunal Ganjawala, and Salim Merchant agreed with him.
Divya Dutta says she got replaced in multiple Bollywood movies
Talking about her struggle in the industry and her views on groups and favouritism Divya Dutta told,
“It used to feel like a huge sense of loss, coming and being rejected or being told on the phone that someone else has been roped in. I’ve been dropped out of many movies at the last minute so that hurts. You feel sheer helplessness because you know how good you could’ve been in that role.”
Govinda was abandoned by Bollywood during his tough time
In an interview with Republic TV Bollywood veteran actor Shatrughan Sinha revealed that Govinda was abandoned by the industry, he said,
“I saw how his film, which was in production, was taken over due to some people. The film was already made but he still had to suffer through all of this.”
Ranvir never failed to win the hearts of his fans with astonishing performances that too back-to-back. But as we all know, due to the number of talent-less kids in Bollywood who holds the position just because of nepotism couldn’t face the competition a lot of professionals have been thrown out and something similar happened to Ranvir. In an interview with Hindustan Times, he revealed,
“Yes, that (Bhatts) is what I am talking about. I was professionally and socially isolated, equally pressured from all ends. Every chance and every platform they would get, they would be lying about me, saying I am an alcoholic and abuser. You feel so helpless and powerless because these people are so powerful that the press will just listen to them and not even bother calling you for your side of the story. You just feel so helpless and frustrated because you can’t do anything about it. It got toxic for me at the time and I had to leave the country for a while.”
