There is a big debate currently on social media and every platform that how accepted are television actors in Bollywood? After Sushant Singh Rajput's death, many are accusing the lobbying practice and nepotism in the industry for causing the late actor immense mental trauma.
Radhika Madan, who has made her mark in Bollywood in no time, also started off from the small screen. She made her debut with Vishal Bhardwaj's Pataakha. Radhika was seen in films like Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota and her last release was Angrezi Medium with late Irrfan Khan.
We had an opportunity to speak to Radhika today, and in her interview, we also touched upon the topic of Sushant's shocking demise. We asked Radhika, if TV actors really find it hard to set afoot in Bollywood?
Responding to the question Radhika said, "Sushant was the one who inspired all of us. I took that leap from TV to Bollywood because he made it look so possible. He played that part. I always used to give his examples whenever people came to me and suggested that I stick to TV because TV actors ko koi nahi leta. I want to remember him for the work that he did. If you want to address the issue of nepotism, unfair practices and lobbying that is happening in the industry, I don't mind discussing it. Let's discuss it and it is something which needs to be addressed. But I don't want Sushant to be an instrument for that. Nobody knows what exactly happened, so we should just stop our own personal agenda."
We then asked her if she faced any such situation coming from TV to Bollywood, and Radhika replied, "Not because I am a TV actress but because I am not from the industry. Of course, we face it. It's relevant and it's there. But at the same time, I also believe in giving my 200%. Even if I know that the role is being offered to a star kid, I always request for an audition at least. My job is to give my best and sleep peacefully at night thinking I gave my best, now whatever happens, happens. It existed in the industry and people were aware about it but I really don't want people to lose lives to realise it. I want all of us to be courageous enough to address the issue and solve it.
