Kangana Calls Bollywood A ‘Toxic’ Place, Says People Pull Each Other Down

Kangana Ranaut has always been vocal about the dark side of Bollywood. From being the one to start the ‘nepotism’ debate to exposing wrongdoings within the industry, time and again Kangana has reminded us that surviving in the movie business is way tougher than people think it is.

In a recent interview, Kangana spoke about how regional film industries are different from that of Bollywood.

Hindustan Times quoted her saying:

“What is very striking about regional cinema is that at least they find some common ground. They’re chameleons, and that’s something that they resonate with. Whereas in Hindi films, because we’ve all migrated to Mumbai, there is so much diversity there, yet there is a bit of tension always.”

She revealed how people are unhelpful and insecure about the successes of others.

“Everybody wants to pull everybody down, that’s not helping at all. It’s become such a toxic place that somehow, nobody is happy for another person, and we are not able to find a common ground we are able to identify with.”

She went on to add:

“A place where there is no love, no empathy, no sense of camaraderie, no sense of compassion, you can only imagine how toxic that place is going to be.”

Finally, she expressed how people involved in regional cinema are “wonderful” to each other.

“Whereas regional cinema is going higher and higher, and we are also seeking some kind of place (in an industry) where people are so wonderful to each other. I hope it remains like that and too many people coming in here don’t ruin it.”
