The Insider Vs Outsider and Nepotism debate has sparked an outrage lately and many have been coming out and voicing their opinions after actress Kangana Ranaut’s explosive interview with Republic TV. As the Insider Vs Outsider debate continues, actresses Dia Mirza and Divya Dutta share their opinions and open up about losing films to other actors and lots more. Dia Mirza weighed in on the Insider Vs Outsider debate in Bollywood and spoke about how favouritism exists, in every path of life, while Divya Dutta opened up about being dropped from films but not letting it affect her.
Speaking with Hindustan Times, Dia Mirza said that she thinks that the Insider Vs Outsider debate is a very unhealthy debate. Talking about favouritism, Dia spoke on how it happens everywhere and said, “Favouritism is nothing new to the construct of human nature. It is something that we have always had.” When questioned about the existence of movie mafia, Dia said that she feels there is a PR machinery and opened up about how there is favouritism that even happens in the media. The actress also spoke on how there are so many people who deserve more respect and attention than they get.
Talking about camps in Bollywood, Dia Mirza said, “There are camps. Of course, there are camps! There are camps of people who get along with each other, who work closely and intimately with each other, their personalities gel.” Speaking of losing films to other actors, Dia accepted that had she been favoured by certain individuals, it would have opened up more opportunities for her, but mentioned how she believes that it is important to walk your own path and set the own course. She continued, “I have lost films to other actors and it’s hurtful but you get up, you dust it off and you move forward. I feel a personal agenda in a lot of things that are being said. I see a lot of personal bone to pick with people. I find a lot of the attacks deeply personal and hurtful. That’s why I feel it’s unhealthy.”
Meanwhile, during an interview with the Times of India, actress Divya Dutta opened up about losing films to other actors. Talking of it, the actress mentioned how she felt a huge sense of loss and said, “It used to feel like a huge sense of loss, coming and being rejected or being told on the phone that someone else has been roped in.” She also added, “I’ve been dropped out of many movies at the last minute so that hurts because you feel sheer helplessness because you know how good you could’ve been in that role.” She spoke about being dropped from films in the past and revealed that she was initially hurt, but learnt to deal with it eventually.
