Actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s sudden demise triggered a number of debates together with the prevalence of nepotism in the movie trade with many coming out and speaking of their very own experiences. Nimrat Kaur, nevertheless, wouldn’t like to connect someone’s private tragedy to the bigger debate.
“I wouldn’t like to go into that direction because one doesn’t know what Sushant went through and I feel this is such sensitive issue and time with due respect to his family and friends, who aren’t in the right space of mind. A lot has already been spoken about and there’s too much negativity on social media,” she says.
Talking concerning the insider vs outsider debate, Kaur doesn’t deny its existence and in reality factors that this has been going on eternally.
“When the industry began, all the yesteryear superstars were outsiders. Now, when after establishing in any profession one has children, it often happens that the next generation wants to follow their footsteps. I grew up wanting to be an army officer looking at my father. But I didn’t go that way because at a young age, I realised how difficult it actually is. But had I done that, I would’ve been on the receiving end of this debate,” provides the 38-year-old.
Known for movies The Lunchbox (2013), Airlift and worldwide TV collection, Homeland and Wayward Pines,Kaur, too, began from scratch in the trade. She circulated her footage to varied manufacturing homes and confronted rejections, too.
“I’ve been rejected 85-90 times for ad films. I’ve really made it brick by brick till here. I’ve much lesser odds against me now than what it was when I started out. But along with adversities, you also meet people who make you believe that you can do it,” says Kaur, including that it’s unfair to simply join the whole lot to nepotism.
Explaining her level, she says, “Every time you don’t lose a project because a star kid was plugged in. There could be other reasons also and we need to accept that. These star kids also need have their set of struggles. And I also can’t forget the number of times I decline offers that come my way.”
The actor additional Kaur shares nobody chooses a challenge fascinated about the cons round it, not even those that’re in a place of privilege.
“I also want things to be smooth for me but that doesn’t happen all the time. But, I don’t want to let all these grow big enough become my reality that makes me question my self-worth and confidence. I don’t want to limit my ambition given the problems in this profession. Nothing comes in the way of my dreams and ambition, that’s it,” she indicators off.
