Suniel Shetty has opened up about how the film industry has lost its voice. The actor feels oneness is missing within Bollywood.
Suniel Shetty has been actively working in the film industry for over three decades now. He has been a part of successful movies like Hera Pheri, Main Hoon Na, Dhadkan, and more. Having been in the industry for a long time, Suniel feels the oneness within Bollywood is missing these days. The actor believes that everything has become weak as 'there is no one to defend one another'.
Suniel Shetty on lack of unity in the film industry
In an interview with The Indian Express, Suniel Shetty revealed the reason there's a feeling of disconnection within the industry.
"Today, the industry has no voice. No one stands up to the nonsense or when there are fingers pointed at us. The bond, that oneness is missing, that voice hasn’t remained. Everything’s become weak as there is no one to defend one another. But I must add that it’s coming back now. After what we went through, with all the hashtags and boycott calls, I think now it’s time that everyone stands up for one another," he said.
Suniel on how agencies tell actors to behave a certain way
The actor further stated nowadays agencies tell actors that they would be a 'star' only when they are alone.
"They ask them to be a specific way and post certain posts every day. The rules that they are setting up, people are believing it. But that’s not how it works. Film family is also your family, and you need to treat them like family. Earlier, we would be there for the unions and work as an association, and I am very hopeful the unity would be back soon," added Shetty.
Suniel's upcoming projects
On the work front, Suniel will be seen in the third installment of Hera Pheri with Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal. The actor also has Welcome To The Jungle with Akshay, Sanjay Dutt, Arshad Warsi, Disha Patani and Jacqueline Fernandez lined up.
