Actress Shweta Tripathi says the declare that an awesome majority of Bollywood is on drugs is an incorrect generalisation, including that such an assertion is a half-truth.
The “Masaan” fame actress, who impressed in current digital releases corresponding to “Cargo” and “The Gone Game”, additionally mentioned that the current allusion by a bit of the movie business that actresses needed to sleep round to get work and that outsiders make house in the “big bad world of cinema” solely after compromising, would make for an attention-grabbing script, however that is not how Bollywood functioned.
“I think narratives doing the rounds that half of the people of the film industry are drug addicts, that female actresses are sleeping around to get work, and outsiders can make their space in the ‘big bad world of cinema’ only after compromising make for great and interesting scripts. No, that is not how we work here in Bollywood,” Shweta informed IANS.
“Trust me when I say this, no one is forcefully putting drugs in our mouths! If a youngster wants to get into drugs, they will do it anyway — whether in Mumbai or in any small town of the country. It has nothing to do with the city of Mumbai. I want to tell all parents it is important to keep a check on the upbringing of their children, with the moral compass in the right direction, as well as their mental health,” she added.
“I think when we pack our bags and come to Mumbai, our parents should ask if we are fine instead of telling to give up on the initial struggle that we all go through. If we are constantly asked about how much money we earn and are told that our struggle is nothing but a waste of time, it really creates a different kind of mental pressure on any budding talent. It is not about consuming drugs. It is about the issues they face, which in turn lead them into the world of darkness and addiction and mental health issues. I think that should be addressed, instead of defaming an industry,” the actress identified.
Over the previous few weeks, a number of feminine personalities in the movie business have raised their voice towards the negativity being unfold round Bollywood. These embrace actresses Jaya Bachchan, Hema Malini, Vidya Balan, Urmila Matondkar, Taapsee Pannu and singer Sona Mohapatra.
