Actor Sargun Mehta’s journey in showbiz began as an outsider who didn’t know anybody from the leisure business or have any contacts. Landing her first present was a stroke of luck, however there was no wanting again ever since.
While a number of TV stars are graduating to Bollywood, Sargun nonetheless hasn’t made any step in that path. Asked if it has something to do with nepotism debate, in accordance to which solely star youngsters get the precise alternatives, Sargun says, “I have always had two versions of it. First one is, the good roles never come to us [outsiders], we are not even auditioned for them, because they are already taken away.”
She then goes on to give examples. “You will have to really look in the past few years to see how many outsiders made it easily, or coming up in numbers more. Basically, everyone around is a star-kid. But then there are people like Nushrat Bharucha and Kartik Aaryan, who are making it. However, look at how they made it. Their films weren’t big-budget ones, or they weren’t invested in, or ‘launched’. They were the ones who made it, just because, like a chance,” she says.
Sargun, who has labored in reveals comparable to 12/24 Karol Bagh and Phulwa, additionally elaborates on the ‘other version’. “Say, my father runs a business, and today my brother is running it for him. There are people who have worked with him for 30 years, but today, my brother is the boss. That’s not fair, but that’s what parents do, and that’s what a legacy is supposed to be. Why would somebody work hard for 30 years if they can’t give it to their kids? Nepotism, I feel, sometimes is a little over-hyped and sometimes very true,” she indicators off.
