Shreyas Talpade is an Indian actor who appears in Marathi and Hindi films. He has appeared in several critically and commercially successful films including the reincarnation melodrama Om Shanti Om (2007) and the comedies Golmaal Returns (2008), Golmaal 3 (2010), Housefull 2 (2012) and Golmaal Again (2017).
Recently Shreyas Talpade speak up about the nepotism in Bollywood industry and also about why not working with Karan Johar and Yash Raj Films doesn’t make him any less of an actor.
According to Hindustan Times he said: “Nepotism and favouritism are here to stay. But we can’t just focus on that while moving ahead. At least I don’t want to. I’ve never done a Karan Johar or a Yash Raj film, I’ve never approached them, nor have they showed interest in working with me. But that doesn’t make me any less an actor. It also doesn’t mean the end of my career.” Also he added: “Now I want to work with Aamir Khan and Salman Khan, too. But then I’ll only work with them in opportunities where I’m equally respected because I deserve that for the hard work I’ve been putting in, in my work.”
He also speak about his journey, and said the industry kids would never be able to enjoy the journey from scratch to success. Shreyas said: “My days of struggle when I didn’t have money to pay rent, buy a sandwich or take a bus to the studio, made me even stronger. Industry kids would never know how it feels to do everything on your own. Let them have their privileges. I feel sorry they don’t have a beautiful journey like we do,”
