Sushant Singh Rajput's suicide has once again brought the word nepotism under spotlight. The actor was said to be suffering from depression, as reportedly 6 out of his 7 films were taken away from him. Many celebrities too are coming forward to share their thoughts and state that the notion of nepotism needs to disappear from the industry. Now, it is Aashiqui girl Anu Aggarwal who has spoken about it. In her latest interview, the actress has shared that she can relate with Sushant as she herself was considered to be an outsider in the industry.
In an interview with Pinkvilla, Anu Aggarwal has spoken at length about the same. When asked whether she ever felt like an outsider in this industry, she stated, "Always. The thing is I don't know what to say. The aftermath of success is something that I had to deal with. Logon ki jealousy, woh ill treat karna shuru kar dete hai. I was stuck with the aftermath of that."
Further, she spoke about how she could relate to Sushant Singh Rajput as she herself did not have anyone to stand by her. "For somebody who is from outside the industry, that is why I relate to Sushant, you are treated as an outcast. With me, I did not have anyone to stand by me and the guy who wanted to stand with me wanted something from me which I didn't want. I understood at a very young age that you cannot take favour because then they will want something in return," she said
In the same interview, she even narrated an incident when she was snubbed at an award show because she did not come from a known, filmy family. She recalled that her name from the nominated actresses list was removed by the jury as they did not know her and this incident made her cry all night.
