Sonu Sood On Nepotism: It Is Very Difficult To Make A Mark In The Industry

Hailed as a messiah by many, Sonu Sood has been working tirelessly to help stranded workers across the nation amid the COVID-19 pandemic. However, apart from helping those in need, the ‘Dabangg’ actor recently opened up about nepotism and his journey in the film industry.

Speaking about the controversies surrounding Sushant’s death, Sonu reportedly said that people will talk about it only for a few days and then just move on to something new, reports TOI. He further added how outsiders will keep struggling to get noticed in the industry.

Recollecting his own struggling days, Sonu said, “I gave the watchman at Film City Rs 500 to watch a shooting there. I wore a body-fitting t-shirt so that somebody would notice me. When people asked me if he was an actor, I told them I was just there to watch the shooting. I felt confident and thought it was very easy to become an actor at that time. But it doesn’t happen like that in reality.”

He went on to say that it doesn’t matter how talented or strong you are, it is very difficult to make a mark in the industry. He pointed out how the percentage of outsiders succeeding in the industry is very less. The actor said that although he is not complaining, this is the harsh reality. He was quoted saying,

“I have gone through my share of struggles and I proudly say that it made me a better and wiser man.”

Speaking about the anger over Sushant’s untimely demise, Sonu said that it is not right to blame one section of the industry for someone’s death. According to him, being accused of such a serious crime might be difficult for these people as well. He mentioned how these people have given opportunities to many others.

Sonu said that people need to respect them and let time decide what is right. Well, the actor does make a valid point, doesn’t he? What do you think? Tell us!
