Abhay Deol Farhan Akhtar reaction
Abhay deol Farhan akhtar reaction: During an India Today show, Farhan Akhtar said on this issue, ‘You are constantly hearing that a race is going on. People are competing with each other for a spot that does not exist. I mean you have to trust yourself, work responsibly, and with hard work. How many magazines have you covered? You have appeared on the front of any magazine or on the front page of a newspaper. If this is your real purpose, then I think you have come into the wrong profession. You are not here. Have you come here to become an actor, director, singer, music composer, or a reality star? Farhan Akhtar gave reaction over Abhay Deol statment.
Let us tell you that earlier, Abhay Deol wrote a post about Bollywood nepotism. In this, after the departure of Sushant Singh Rajput, he had asked Khuda to speak. He wrote that during many award shows in ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ in 2011, Hrithik Roshan was awarded the Lead Actor by defeating me and Farhan Akhtar. We were nominated as Sporting Actors. Apart from this, he also accused of lobbying in the industry. He said that I had boycotted the award show, but Farhan Akhtar remained with it.

“Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara”, released in 2011. Need to chant this title to myself everyday nowadays! Also a great watch when anxious or stressed. I would like to mention that almost all the award functions demoted me and Farhan from main leads, and nominated us as “supporting actors”. Hrithik and Katrina were nominated as “actors in a leading role”. So by the industry’s own logic, this was a film about a man and a woman falling in love, with the man supported by his friends for whatever decisions he takes. There are many covert and overt ways in which people in the industry lobby against you. In this case it was shamelessly overt. I of course boycotted the awards but Farhan was ok with it. #familyfareawards Very creative artwork @kalakkii
Significantly, after the death of Sushant Singh Rajput, Abhay Deol is not the only one who is reacting to Bollywood nepotism. Apart from Abhay, actors like Kangana Ranaut, Shekhar Kapoor, Manoj Bajpayee, Prakash Raj, Sonu Sood, and Abhinav Kashyap have expressed their opinion on this. At the same time, there is a lot of uproar in this on social media too
