Actor Renee Dhyani was a actuality present contestant, earlier than she shifted her focus to fiction reveals on tv, and went on to do a few them. However, it wasn’t straightforward as somebody who new no person, and he or she admits that groupism and favouritism are rampant within the TV trade, too and never simply Bollywood.
“I have faced this. What happened is, there was a time when people told me ‘Oh my God, pahaadi looking ladkiyaan nahi chahiye. If they are from Nepal or Manipur, we don’t have work for her’. They distinguished me in a manner, I felt are they giving work on the basis of just looks, or giving work looking at my work? It was hard for me in the beginning, and I never shared it with anyone because I thought this is how the industry works. It’s not really nepotism, but it hurts,” shares the 29-year-old.
This type of discrimination is what Dhyani feels results in psychological well being points. She shares that one’s work getting affected due to favouritism is sort of widespread.
“When you audition, your tape goes to the production and channel, who decide the cast. I would know that I am getting the job, but then I didn’t get a call once for two-three days. They said ‘iss look mein nahi challenge, face broad hai, language thoda aisa hai, tomboyish look hai’. I told them you should have given me a character brief,” she explains.
Dhyani, who has been part of reveals equivalent to Yeh Teri Galiyan and Kasam tere Pyaar Ki, feels that this was an try to make her aware about her seems, however she didn’t give in.
“I am not going to question myself, standing in front of the mirror, ‘why am I like this’. You chose me to come for an audition, and now you are giving me this sh*t,” she says.
Ignoring it and transferring ahead is what the actor learnt. But artists are emotional and delicate, and after they can’t take such malpractices, they resort to the mistaken step, feels Dhyani.
“Agar koi artists ki nerve ko chhed de, voh insaan yahi karta hai jo chal raha hai aaj kal. So many actors committed suicide. Then people post Instagram stories ‘you were so good’. You should have then given them work when they required it! Atleast a chance to prove themselves,” she says.
