Sonu Sood talked about his struggling days in Bollywood and told,
“I gave the watchman at Film City Rs 500 to watch a shooting there. I wore a body-fitting t-shirt so that somebody would notice me. When people asked me if he was an actor, I told them I was just there to watch the shooting. I felt confident and thought it was very easy to become an actor at that time. But it doesn’t happen like that in reality.”
“No matter how talented and strong you are, it is very difficult to make a mark in the industry. There are hardly people in the industry who are outsiders and have become successful in the industry. I had my share of struggles and today I can proudly say that it made me a better and wiser man.”
Talking about Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise and a particular section is always targeted in Bollywood, Sonu Sood told,
“It is not right to blame one section of the industry for someone’s death. It is very difficult for those individuals also to hear someone blame you for someone’s death. These are the people who have given life to a lot of people in the industry. One needs to respect that and let time decide what is right.”
