Off late, many fingers have been pointed out at the Hindi film industry, Bollywood, after actress Rhea Chakraborty’s arrest. Rhea Chakraborty was arrested on September 8 in connection to the drugs angle in the actor Sushant Singh Rajput case. Rhea was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau, which eventually led to reports putting other Bollywood celebrities also under the spotlight. Now, as there are theories about the presence of a so-called drug nexus in B-Town, in an interview recently, Cargo actress Shweta Tripathi shares her views. Read On
In an interview with Bollywoodlife.com, Cargo actress Shweta Tripathi questioned why only Bollywood is put under the spotlight rather than other industries. She said, “I feel that if in life whoever does what in whatever way, and if they have control over it, be it alcohol, drugs or food, be it any sin, the so-called sins we believe are such, if there is no harm or hurt, then...(why should we judge).” The actress went on and explained that if one starts talking about drinking and what people do after that, there is no comparison. She added how it’s very easy to judge and said, “I think it is very easy to judge. If drugs are done, it's not only in this industry, that would be very convenient.”
Talking in support of Bollywood, Shweta Tripathi mentioned how glamour, casting couch, whatever bad is there in the world, does not only exist in Bollywood alone. She added, “The other industries are all clean. I am not saying that everything that happens or spoken about is false. I have not faced, but that does not mean it doesn't exist.” Tripathi went on to talk about current times and said that from what she understands and what she has heard, things are much cleaner today. She mentioned that she feels blessed that she is a part of the industry today.
The Cargo actress also opened up about how in today’s time, people still have the chance to watch a small-budget film later, due to the OTT platforms. Shweta Tiwari finally concluded and said, “So, there's good, bad and ugly in everyone in every industry, but rather than focusing on the ugly, let's appreciate the good.” Also Read: Cargo Movie Review: Vikrant Massey And Shweta Tripathi Spin Around An Intelligent Concept With A Faulty Screenplay
