Priyanka Chopra Addresses Nepotism in Bollywood, Saying That “There Are No Camps That Actually Rule Casting”
Priyanka Chopra Jonas is one of our generation’s most prominent female celebrities. She not only established herself in Bollywood, but also in Hollywood. The Desi girl recently confessed that she felt suffocated in Bollywood, prompting her to pursue a career in the West.
Her recent confessions that she faced hostility in the Hindi film industry as people stopped casting her in films, eventually driving her to move to the West, have sparked debate about how the film industry works, including its politics, nepotism, gatekeeping attitude, and cliques.
In a new interview with a news portal, the global star discussed removing politics and drama from the office and creating a healthy workplace atmosphere for outsiders who want to make it great in the Hindi film industry. Priyanka recognized that the industry has changed dramatically in the last 5-10 years. New talent is emerging from outside the industry, which was not the case when she first began. She stated that there should be debates about opportunity and the workplace and that casting should be merit-based, with no camps controlling casting.
She also stated that casting should be based on who the audience wants to watch. She also shared her delight at seeing newcomers from outside the industry. She commended her generation of actors for fighting for it, as a result of which the Hindi cinema industry’s functionality has changed dramatically.
