2020 has been a tough year for everyone. While the entertainment industry came to a halt during the pandemic-induced lockdown, the film industry, especially Bollywood, was constantly in the news, albeit for the wrong reasons. From the unfortunate death of Sushant Singh Rajput to the nepotism debate to the drug investigation, a lot has been said and discussed about the industry in the recent past. Actor Sonu Sood, beloved for his philanthropic work, has been a part of the film industry himself, both in Bollywood and in the Southern industry for a very long time. In an exclusive chat with Bollywood Hungama, Sonu Sood shared his honest opinions about the industry.
When asked if he was bothered by people’s opinion of Bollywood, Sood said, “Of course I was bothered. But the sad part is that some people in our Bollywood itself spoke against the industry. It is this industry that people leave their families and fight for. This place makes your dreams come true that you have always dreamed of. Very few people are so lucky. If we are talking about Bollywood, then it is an inspiration to people, they say, actors inspire, if they give people a message, they follow it. So you can imagine how affected each actor must have been when people pointed fingers at them. “
However, Sonu Sood believes that these test times have also been a lesson for everyone in the industry. “This industry recognizes that we are all together and that we are like family, but the chains that can bind us are missing. These chains are separated individually. How many hang together, how many appreciate each other, no one does. Everyone says they are part of Bollywood, but in this part, they create barriers around which they feel safe. So if a stranger wishes to come in, those walls are too high for him. This entire episode has been a lesson for everyone. “
“Success is welcomed but no one is reaching out to failure. It is only when a successful individual helps a less successful person to get up that he wins. It’s a lesson that is missing from people’s books and I wish it would come back to them. And I hope they extend the limits of the imaginary barriers built around them and welcome more people, ”he added.
