Days after Sushant Singh Rajput’s untimely demise by suicide, Bollywood actor Sahil Khan has lashed out at a Bollywood superstar in a cryptic post on his Instagram page. Sahil Khan who gained fame with the film Style revealed how he too, had to face the brunt of being an outsider in the film industry, just like Sushant.
Sahil Khan Disclosed That How A Certain Superstar Had Him Thrown Out Of Films
Sahil shared a throwback magazine cover of Stardust that featured him along with Shah Rukh & Salman Khan. The Style actor wrote,
“Bahut kam logon ke saath aise hota hai ki apni first film (Style) ke baad India ke sabse top film magazine ke cover par, do India ke sabse bade superstars ke saath ho. Magar unmein seek superstar ko bahut bura laga. Jabki main toh naya tha, unka fan tha, kamzor tha. Fir bhi woh mujhe kai baar side role ke liye bulate rahe. TV show ke liye bhi bulate rahe. Aur fir kai films se mujhe nikalwa diya. Naam bade par darshan chote. Guess who?” (“It happens with a very few people that after their very 1st film (Style) they get featured on India’s top magazine cover alongwith India’s top 2 stars. But, one of the stars took an offence. In fact, I was new, their fan and vulnerable. Then too they called me several times for side roles, on their TV show and then got me thrown out of films. Guess who?”)
‘These People Of The World Are Scared Of New Talents,’ Says The Style Actor
“I don’t give a f*** today for him kyunki Sushant Singh Rajput ne unka saccha asli chechra dikha diya. Duniya ke woh log new talents se kitna darte hain. 20 saal mein John Abraham se alawa koi nahi aaya industry mein bada star coz koi aane nahi deta. Only star son ko hi kaam milta hai. Think about it.” (“I don’t give a f*** today for him because Sushant Singh Rajput has exposed their true face. These people of the world are scared of new talents. In 20 years, no one apart from John Abraham could become a star in the industry because they never let anyone become one. Only stars get roles. Think about it.”)
Sushant Singh Rajput’s sudden demise has reignited a debate on prevalent nepotism in the film industry.
