It’s been a month since Sushant Singh Rajput’s sad demise. The actor, who ended his life on June 14, has left his friends, fans and family mourning over his death. As SSR’s tragic death sparked off big nepotism debate on social media, Mumbai Police have been interrogating a lot of people in connection with his death case. Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, good friend Mahesh Shetty, YRF casting director Shanoo Sharma, filmmaker Shekhar Kapur, rumoured girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, house help, cook, father and 3 sisters among others have already recorded their statement. As his fans and fraternity people are yet to come to terms with his death, Hina Khan in her latest interview said that she always looked up to SSR.
Speaking about how only a few outsiders made it big in Bollywood, Hina Khan told Hindustan Times, “Some of the TV actors have made it big in Bollywood but they also had their own struggle. The tag of an outsider is always with you. And how many of them have made it big? I really looked up to Sushant, he made way for all of us. Now I don’t know, it scares me even more, I wish there was a balance – if a star kid was given an opportunity in 5-6 films, maybe we were given 3. That doesn’t happen, it‘s just one-sided. I wish talented outsiders and TV actors are given an opportunity in films.”
When asked about her own struggles she has faced, she told the same portal, "I won’t deny that there is a struggle. We don’t have opportunities and have to find them and perhaps it is too much hard work. After doing 10 shows, your work may be noticed in one of them. You have to literally work you’re a** off just to be noticed by a good producer or a director. That doesn’t happen with people who are privileged or have a bank of 7-10 films. If one doesn’t work out, they still have the next project or next of next. We don’t really have that opportunity.”
She further stated that an outsider has to literally struggle to get an opportunity. The actress it is more difficult for an actor who has a television background because they are looked down upon. “You are not given the opportunity you deserve just because you come from TV industry. This is extremely sad. We may be able to perform better than anyone else but we don’t get the opportunity. I wish there was a balance,” she added.
