Vivek Agnihotri Shares Bollywood’s ‘Inside Story’; Says ‘Those Who Don’t Find Real Success Get Into Drugs’

Filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri, who is known for sharing his unfiltered views on social media, recently shared a long note on social media, highlighting the darkest secrets of Bollywood. While Agnihotri talked about how ‘humiliation and exploitation have shattered dreams’, the ace director also pointed out what happens with the ones who fail to achieve real success in the industry.

‘The Kashmir Files’ director wrote, “I have now spent enough years in Bollywood to understand how it works. What you see is not Bollywood. Real Bollywood is found in its dark alleys. Its underbelly is so dark that it’s impossible for a common man to fathom. Let’s understand it: In these dark alleys, you can find shattered dreams, trampled dreams, buried dreams. If Bollywood is a meuseum of tale nt, then it’s also a cemetery of talent. It’s not about rejection. Anyone who comes here, knows that rejection is part of the deal.”

Furthermore, Agnihotri continued, “It’s the humiliation & exploitation which shatters tender dreams, hopes and belief in any kind of humanity. One can survive without food but to live without respect, self-worth and hope is impossible. No middle-class youngster grows up ever imagining to be in that situation. It hits so hard that instead of putting up a fight, one gives up.”

In his long note, the filmmaker also talked about how ones get introduced to life-damaging stuffs when they fail to find real success in the industry. “Those who find some success but not the real one, get into drugs, alcohol and all kind of life-damaging stuff. Now they need money. So, they get introduced to all kinds of funny money. Some success is the most dangerous one. You are in showbiz without any income and power. You have to look like a star, party like a star, PR like a star but you aren’t a star,” Agnihotri added.

While Agnihotri’s last release ‘The Kashmir Files’ is in run for an Oscar nomination’s nod, the filmmaker is expected to begin his next project ‘The Delhi Files’ soon, which is expected to release in 2024.
