Undoubtedly, India is known for its entertainment industry and mostly Bollywood. And why should it not? Its extravaganza has established its scale ,and its influence is such that we can't help but be impacted by the entertainment industry in our country. With all of this, Bollywood looks like only goody-goody industry? No. It is not so. So, I have brought to you ten such evil things and truths about the industry which will make you feel guilty of liking Bollywood. So keep reading on!
I don't have to explain the meaning of the Nepotism, do I? It is the favouring of the kids and the people who are a part of the Bollywood Star's families. It has existed all the time in Bollywood, but only now it has become a lot more prominent. Examples like them are a lot, Jhanvi Kapoor,
, and many other star kids are given debuting opportunities from big banners and best directors. While the other people or 'outsiders' in the industry are trying hard to get into the industry but are still failing to do so. So, Bollywood now appreciates a famous bloodline instead of talent.
The audience has become color-obsessed ,and so they don't want to see anybody who isn't fair skinned. Again, this has brought a lot of loss of talent as not all the people with skill are fair skinned and vice versa. The indian audience is getting deviated and is favouring skin color instead of talent.
Another bitter truth of the industry is that the stars only sustain for a specific amount of time. Whatever amount of money that they have to earn is during this time only otherwise it is impossible to gather wealth later. Tons of famous artists like
have lived their last days in poverty.
4. Objectification and Sexualization of the Female Stars
Recently, Bollywood is trying hard to get inspiration from the western industry. No, not content-wise, only purely nudity wise. Item songs have become an important factor for attracting the audience to watch the film even more than the content of the film. Women are just used as a sex symbol and used to manipulate the public. This impacts the way people look at women as Bollywood has a high influence on the minds and lives of people.
5.Controversy is used to gain fame
Along with positive publicity, there is also a thing called negative publicity. About the entertainment industry in the country, the people are more curious and eager to get all kinds of gossips rather than getting valuable information. It gives people like KRK,
, and others hope of becoming the news of the day even if they have not a little sense to make. And just to have a good gossip the people start valuing their stupid headlines.
6. Sexual Harassment
Again this is a known fact that something called 'Casting couch' exists in Bollywood. Various famous actors and actresses have admitted having been undergone sexual harassment by their co-stars or their directors. In such way 'sleeping with the directors' brings success to actors than their talents.
7. Commercialization over Content
Bollywood has now become a stereotype for 'Masala Movies' and of typical romantic films where one boy meets a girl, a song plays, they fall in love but there is a lot of issues that come their way and then finally overcome every problem and finally live together happily ever after.
8. Censor Board
The censor board has a weird way of clearing the films without any cuts. Many of the actors are also pissed off by the way the censor board gives its decision. Also, it doesn't make sense as the movie '
Angry Indian Goddesses
' faced problem during the release but a third-grade movie like
Great Grand Masti
gets passed by the censor board.
9. No one cares about the story
People in India are fans of the stars more than they are of the stories of the movies. That is why, films that have no story also proudly enter the 100 Crore club in the industry. If there is no story in the flick but the flick has a famous star cast, boom! You have got yourself a super hit movie.
10. Always look beautiful
I agree that audiences form a large part of a star's life, but a celeb's got a personal life too! They are always under the scanner and that is ridiculous! Everywhere they go they have to have their makeup, and clothes on point or else you see a headline next day titled 'worst dressed airport/ hotel celebrities.' Can't we let them have a life, while we try to get one too?
