Sushant Singh Rajput’'s death has once again ignited nepotism debate in the industry. Many have been calling out film fraternity biggies for their partial behaviour and not giving a fair chance to the outsiders who also deserve a chance to showcase their talent. While many Bollywood actors and filmmakers are sharing their personal experience, TV actor Ravi Dubey disagrees with nepotism prevalent in the Television industry. Ravi is indifferent and feels that Television is such a place that accepts everyone without prejudice and discrimination.
Speaking to Pinkvilla, Ravi Dubey said, “I would like to defend the TV industry here because I feel TV is one industry that has a very big heart and which embraces everyone without any prejudice or discrimination. Of course, it has its own challenges but favouritism is not something I have witnessed. The reason I am saying is the deadline-centric medium that TV is, the right casting is extremely important. There is no time for favouritism on TV. All of us have worked through the process of auditions, more auditions, and finally crack something and struggle.”
“Pick anyone on television, all of them are outsiders. There is not a single one, rarely you will see anyone who belongs to a certain family. From top to middle, everyone has come from different backgrounds, tv has embraced them and made them stars, relevant actors. I have every bit of whoever I am, I have television to thank for. I feel a lot of people look down upon TV, and sadly mostly from our industry itself, they don’t give it the due regards. It is unfortunate because it is the only medium that embraces without prejudice,” he added further.
When asked about the actor making a shift from TV to Bollywood, Dubey said, “It is a reality that every time an outsider is given a chance to prove their work, it has always taken the industry ahead by leaps and bounds. There is SRK, Ayushmann, Sushant Singh Rajput, they have all proven it. In fact, Sushant had been one of the crusaders for it and gave us all more strength. Struggles are there but it always leaves you with some kind of skill set. So, I will be honest, things have not come to me easily but I welcome all the crises because it makes things evolve.” (ALSO READ: Sargun Mehta On Ravi Dubey And Nia Sharma's Kissing Scenes In Jamai Raja 2.0: 'Told Him To Be A Good Kisser')
