One has to work tirelessly even for bread.
Annu Kapoor, while talking about the change in the entertainment world after OTT, said that ‘the big stars who used to shy away from appearing on TV earlier are now seen indiscriminately, because money is being received. We are all working for money. Sometimes projects have to be done even if the content is not liked. Sometimes there is frustration too, but what to do, even if you have to arrange for bread. I also have to take care of my family. I am not Amitabh Bachchan or Shahrukh Khan. Even after 40 years, I am only a small struggling actor. In this country no one cares how dedicated and talented actor you are, if you are handsome or if you haven’t done some films as a hero then everything is fine.
