However, talking about nepotism in a recent media interaction, the actor took a dig at South industry actors and entered into the Bollywood vs South debate.
Badhai Do actor is currently neck-deep busy promoting his upcoming web series Dahaad, and in one such media conversation, he talked about how he thinks Bollywood is more democratic than the South film industry. Scroll below to get the scoop.
In an interview with Hindustan Times, Gulshan Devaiah entered into the South vs Bollywood debate while talking about nepotism and shared that in South, most of the stars come from big and famous families whereas in Bollywood, actors from outside the industry also get work. He can be heard saying, “If you look at the industry in the South, it is making so many waves. You can name all the actors who are really popular and all of them come from families. Everybody has their third and fourth generation working.”
Gulshan Devaiah further revealed while talking about Bollywood, “But the Hindi film industry is far more democratic people like me, Vijay Varma, Soham (Shah), Mrunal Thakur, we are all working and doing well and making a living out of this.”
