Madhur Bhandarkar is one of the finest film makers of the industry. His remarkable films like Page 3, Fashion and Heroine have only proved the essence of real portrayal of life to its best. Being a very honest film maker, Madhur has never shied away from showcasing the true face of the industry and the brutality attached to it in his films.
In a recent interview, Madhur claimed how he had been getting several messages from people that how his venture Heroine depicted the reality of the Bollywood industry which is extremely relatable to what happened with Sushant Singh Rajput.
Madhur said, “After Sushant Singh Rajput’s untimely demise, people on social media are telling me whatever I had shown in the movie Heroine is true. I have shown in the film what actors go through, how they fight their own battles, the PR things and all”.
The filmmaker also revealed as to how he had to bear the grunt of the movie mafias upon exposing Bollywood in Heroine. He added, “ When I made the movie, people in the film fraternity got very upset with me. According to them, I had taken a lot of things from real life. But the same people appreciated me and my work when I made it in other fields. But I had to be true to my craft. What I showed in Heroine is 95 percent true. I am an honest filmmaker and I stand by the kind of work that I have done in my career. I don’t belong to any lobby or camp”.
The sad reality of Bollywood continues to exist even today. With some light of hope with Sushant Singh Rajput’s case, the audience and outsiders are hoping to uncover the wrong does soon.
