Not eager on indulging in any type of blame sport, actor Angad Bedi is of the opinion that the entire insider vs outsider debate within the movie business is like “passing the buck”. As somebody who doesn’t belong to any movie household, he insists that the business does open up its arms to welcome and worth good expertise and that there’s no alternate to exhausting work.
“Everyone needs to hustle it out. If not you, then there are ten more options waiting in line. Every film you reject goes to someone else and another actor is born. No one is invincible here. Everyone wants to work with the best and get commercial success, but nothing comes easy,” says the actor.
Much like others, Bedi, too,doesn’t deny that those that’re born in a movie household have a bonus over others who come from the surface, however he does keep that the whole lot boils down to 1’s functionality and dedication.
“Look at Akshay (Kumar) sir, Shah Rukh (Khan) sir, Mr (Amitabh) Bachchan — they don’t come from any film background, but look at the kind of adulation they’ve been getting for decades. Now, what do you want? Would you choose an easy access and a big launch or would you like to have a career spanning 30-35 years?” he asks.
Having completed movies reminiscent of Pink (2016), Tiger ZindaHai (2017), and internet collection Inside Egde, the 37-year-old is glad together with his profession trajectory, and believes in preserving transferring on.
“Alia (Bhatt), Varun (Dhawan), Ranbir (Kapoor) are all good actors. Why shouldn’t they get opportunities? Rather than pointing fingers at their lineage, I see this as a healthy competition. I’ve faced rejections, too. There have been times when filmmakers didn’t want to see my face and thinking I’m not up to the mark and gave the chance to someone else,” he shares.
POinting how filmmaking is a “business” that runs many households, the actor says, “If someone’s making money, they’ll get preference, however, that doesn’t mean others won’t get an equal chance. Complaining and indulging in self pity will only make us weak. Let’s hone our skills and fight it out.”
