The insiders vs outsiders debate again once again amplified after Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise. Many stars from the Bollywood as well as from the television industry have shared their views on the same. The recent one to share his thoughts is Naagin 2 star Karanvir Bohra. In an interview with Hindustan Times, the actor spoke about the unfairness in the entertainment industry and questioned the fate of the TV actors when stars like Vidyut Jammwal and Kunal Kemmu feel sidelined. He said a lot of actors on TV are phenomenal and have great potential but they're always given the cold shoulder by the film industry as they've done a lot of TV shows.
Karanvir also feels that he doesn’t want the web space to be bullied by big films and stars. Talking about how Vidyut Jammwal and Kunal Kemmu were feeling neglected recently during the seven-film announcement on the OTT platform, Bohra said, "When films release, they're backed by heavy PRs, they have their pre-release marketing budgets, even on OTT platforms. We've seen tweets by actors Vidyut Jammwal and Kunal Kemmu when they felt sidelined, imagine if such actors are sidelined, then what about people like us? Where do we stand?"
Karanvir who recently released his new web show titled, Bhanwar, further quipped, "Don't give importance to stardom, push and promote talent and new concepts. Like my new show, we shot during the pandemic — our platform pushed us. We don't stand a chance in front of these heavy duties. So, people should give content a chance."
