Do Akshay Kumar and Ranveer Singh bully newcomers on Movie sets? Mrunal Jain makes shocking revelation
In the past year, the Bollywood business has seen a lot of adversity. Sushant Singh Rajput’s tragic death brought to light the darker side of the industry. Many people accused Bollywood’s major stars of harassing new voices and denying them the opportunity to develop. Mrunal Jain, a TV actor who is ready to make his Bollywood debut in a major film, has a very different narrative to tell. In Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi, Mrunal Jain will be featured with actors like Ranveer Singh, Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, and Katrina Kaif. When asked if working with these “Big Stars” was nerve-wracking, Mrunal Jain revealed that they were kind and welcoming.
He said, “Ranveer Singh and Akshay Kumar’s energy had a positive impact on me. There were no borders. They were warm and welcomed the newcomers on set with open arms. So that was something that got me comfortable and that was the best thing I could have asked for.” Mrunal Jain also disclosed what he learned on the set of Sooryavanshi from his co-stars.
He said, “You just don’t believe these are the same superstars you have been watching on the big screen for so many years. You get to know how they portray the craft. I had difficulty being in the character and I was constantly having a fan moment. They are not superstars just because they are Akshay Kumar, Ranveer Singh, or Ajay Devgn. They are superstars because of their craft and the dedication they have stuck to their whole life. That is the reason they have come so far. Discipline, dedication towards your craft, and the passion of being in front of the camera, this is what I have learned from them. “
Sooryavanshi, starring Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif, is yet to be released but is already the most talked-about film. The film’s release has been postponed due to COVID-19, which has rendered it impossible for theatres to open. However, the filmmakers have opted to hold off on releasing the film on OTT and instead wait for the theatres to reopen in full.
