Sooraj Pancholi: Star kids who haven't done well outnumber outsiders who haven't done well in Bollywood
Ever since Sushant Singh Rajput's death on June 14, an outsider vs insider debate has ensued on social media. Sooraj Pancholi shared his opinion on the subject during an exclusive interview said that it is imperative for aspiring artistes to be a "good producer's actor".
"I would say that social trolling ke paise bhi lagte hain. Ki aap paise fenko agar aapko uska naam badnam karna hai. Yeh mere saath bhi hua hai, aur kaafi logon ke sath hota hai. I would not say that it does not happen but saying that an outsider does not get chances, I would say no to that because Sushant was an outsider and he did really well," Sooraj said.
"If you see the number of star kids that have not done well and if you see the number of people who are from outside who have done well, the majority will be the star kids who have not done well. If you are good, you will get work. If you are not good, you will not get work," Sooraj added.
Sooraj Pancholi, son of actors Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab, made his debut in the Hindi film industry with Salman Khan's Hero in 2015.
"It's not about being a good actor. You also have to be a good producer's actor. You have to be on set on time. You have to finish your work on time. You have to be well behaved. Acting is not everything. You have to be a professional. There are people who are very good actors but have a very bad attitude. But there are people who are not good actors but have a decent attitude. That's why they go longer," Sooraj said.
