Producers Guild finally issued a statement of the death of Sushant Singh Rajput and they told, “The tragic death of a promising young star has been used by some as a tool to defame and slander the film industry and its members,”.
According to the statement by Producers Guild and negative picture is being painted of the film industry as a terrible place for outsiders to aspire to.
The statement further said, “We do not negate the personal experiences of anyone from the industry, and undoubtedly many of those entering the business and seeking to establish themselves have faced numerous hardships, struggles and disappointments in the course of building a career here. But that is no different from the challenges and obstacles faced by new entrants in any field that they are not born into – be it politics, law, business, medicine or the media,” the statement added.
The statement also spoke about nepotism and wrote, “Being born into the industry most definitely affords you the privilege of access and a first break, but after that it is up to each individual’s talent, hard work and drive to propel them forward.”
“This is to let all aspirants to the film industry know that they should not be misled by the clickbait journalism currently being peddled to advance the sensationalized narrative that the film industry is a terrible place to aspire to work in,” They wrote and added,
“While it is undoubtedly more difficult for those on the outside to get that first chance to display their talent – with perseverance, persistence and a little bit of luck – you can and do succeed. There are too many examples to enumerate across more than a century, of outsiders to the industry who are shining testament to this fact.”
They concluded the statement by saying, “The media must look in the mirror and stop fanning the flames. There are some things more important than advertising revenues and ratings – things like common human decency. Let’s show we still have some. In solidarity. The Producers Guild of India,” the statement concluded.
