In an exclusive chat with us, the Yeh Hai Mohabbatein actress voices her opinion on something really important..
The showbiz industry which seems all pleasant, glamorous and wonderful from the outside, also has an unseen side to it which is not as pleasant.
At different instances, we have come across various examples of how some actors face ‘problems’ or ‘discrimination’ on sets and how several controversies are born because of the same.
One of the most popular actresses on television, Divyanka Tripathi recently witnessed something disheartening and tweeted about the same-
To know more about the actress’ concern and opinion, we got in touch with Divyanka and in an exclusive conversation with TellyBuzz, the actress spilled some beans saying, “The other day, I came across an instance where some actors were ill-treated and it was such a disheartening thing to see. Some people, who I wish not to name, treated a few character artists in the most inappropriate manner. I mean, we are all actors and actors should be given the respect they deserve. There are many actors who are doing their first show and because this is their first experience, they are ready to push the limits and go overboard when it comes to working. However, this shouldn’t be used as a tool to harass them and ill-treat them. And not only some actors, but directors and even the production guys are at times, used as tools by certain people. It is not at all acceptable and should be taken care of.”
She also added,”One of the reasons I addressed this issue is because I have experienced the same myself during the beginning of my career. When I was a fresh entrant into the industry, I was made to go through something similar and hence I can imagine how others would be feeling too. I was naive when I entered and during those times, we did not have rules and regulations as one would remember. It was only after the historic strike took place that some important rules were revised. Actors are here to perform an art and there has to be a sense of respect at the least. Waiting for long hours during a shoot is never a problem as that happens frequently and can happen with anyone. But, being rude and disrespectful towards them cannot be justified. I really hope that the status and occurrences change and things only get better after some necessary measures are taken.”
We hope more people in the industry have similar opinions and insights that would help attain the change that is needed.
