Aneesha Madhok: I don’t care if all the roles go to nepotism babies, I will create my own opportunities
In the entertainment industry networking and references matter when it comes to getting the right opportunity. Bully High actress Aneesha Madhok does not believe in networking in the entertainment industry.
“I was acting in a play in Los Angeles and got spotted by filmmaker Bill McAdams Jr, who was sitting in the audience. He cast me as the lead in my first independent Hollywood film. From there on, I just kept getting spotted by other filmmakers and managers. So I believe one should just keep doing what they love,” she says.
Merit has its value so does luck but preference wise the actor with contacts often gets the opportunity. “Hard Work beats talent if talent doesn’t work hard. However I have gotten more opportunities in global film industries instead of my country. I don’t think my talent is valued here and I have made peace with that. I don’t care if all the roles go to nepotism babies, I will create my own opportunities,” she continues,” I have not much to say about nepotism because it is everywhere in Bollywood. I feel like I can be friends with anyone so I do vibe with a lot of the star kids but I feel Bollywood should jump on the global level of talent hunt instead of sticking to limited artistic endeavours and until it doesn’t I will stick to global film industries, Pollywood and Tollywood,” she adds.
Aneesha shares that right opportunities are everywhere. “Because there is a lack of innovation, retro songs are constantly repeated and the same clichéd structure is repeated. What’s the point?” she ends with a question.
