Manoj Bajpayee: Nepotism has always existed in Bollywood but it shouldn't deter the outsidersRenuka VyavahareThe actor gave his take on the issue. | TNN | Aug 11, 2018, 18:11 ISTManoj Bajpayee, Photo: Tejas KudtarkarManoj Bajpayee, Photo: Tejas KudtarkarWhen asked about nepotism in Bollywood, Manoj said, "Nepotism has always existed in Bollywood. It’s just that people are calling it out now. This is a ruthless industry. They will never give an outsider a chance, when there’s somebody of their own in the waiting. I know of a few directors, who have created this culture of making it difficult for outsiders. They are ruling the roost a nd prefer to work with people who they consider as their own. Their logic is, why should we give an outsider a chance when we have an actor sitting in our home? I can’t take names, but they are convinced about what they are doing. Good for them, but as an outsider, should that deter my spirit? No! I will work on my skills so much that you won’t be able to ignore me. This should be the resolve of all actors coming from outside."
He added, "We have got into this habit of pushing whoever is close to us over someone who may be more deserving. That has become our society’s tendency and thus, the system. The system doesn’t want quality or talent to be celebrated. They want their own people to succeed, even if they are mediocre. If one person from their fraternity is a little above average, they are celebrated as if they are the most gifted individuals. And who is enhancing their cause? It’s a section of the media."
