'By focusing on…..': Here's what Sushmita Sen said when asked about nepotism in Bollywood
New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: With the runaway success of Ram Madhvani’s Disney-Hotstar series ‘Aarya’, former Miss Universe Sushmita Sen has banged the bong of her ruthlessly excellent presence in the entertainment world of Mumbai and beyond. The actress recently hosted a Q&A session on Twitter #AskAarya.
The 44-year-old actress made multiple revelations which stimulated varying reactions in the fans and admirers. Sushmita, who entered in the industry based on merit with exceptional fame of first Miss Universe from India, was asked by a Twitter user, "How did you survive nepotism in Bollywood?"
Sushmita gave a particularly smart answer with an unadulterated subtlety in the words she tweeted out. Former Miss Universe replied under the hashtag #simpleenough, "By focusing on my audience.. you guys! I will continue to work as an actor as long as you want to see me."
Sushmita’s response to nepotism generated a sense of appreciation among her fans. “Then you will have to act till the age of 99 coz we would like to see you forever,” one fan reacted.
“You're true gem of Bollywood. A self made (star),” wrote another user.
The actress, when asked what inspired her to do a web series of all formats, said that she chose “good content over format”.
Again, when the actress was asked that was this her best performance till date, she replied by saying that, that one is yet to come.
The word nepotism, after stoked upon by actress Kangana Ranaut in a talk show way back during the release of film Rangoon, has again got the traction on and off the social media after the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput by suicide on June 14th.
Nationwide fans across the country have expressed their rage towards the nepotism-supporting elements of the film industry which tend to sideline the deserving talent for putting forward the family connections into the mainstream cinema.
