Bollywood Mafia and its truth;  Anees Bazmee, Vikas Bahl expose reality

Whenever a Bollywood movie is about to hit the screens, there are Boycott Bollywood and Boycott actor/movie trends taking over social media. But that’s not all, once the movie does well and the box office numbers come out, we see Bollywood Mafia making the news. Interestingly, while the Boycott Bollywood trend is fan-driven, people who talk about the “mafia” within the film industry are from the fraternity itself. So who better than some of the most famous filmmakers to reveal the true side of the story? Read also – Hera Pheri 3: The real reason why Kartik Aaryan replaced Akshay Kumar revealed

BollywoodLife asked the esteemed panel, “Does the Bollywood mafia exist and is that the reason for the lack of unity or the reason why it ceases to be an ‘industry’.

Anees Bazmee, who has been in the industry for a few decades and has seen the pre-corporatization and post-corporatization changes, said, “The film industry is a place of hearts and emotions. There were times when producers gave us checks and they stayed in our drawers. And no one cared, but they continued to work together again. Giving up such an amount of money only happens here, because there is emotion involved.

The director who gave us one of the biggest blockbusters with Kartik Aaryan in the post-pandemic era further said, “There is no mafia. But yeah, there’s all kinds of people everywhere and some people have been screaming from the rooftops, but that’s not how this place works’

The other administrators agreed. Komal Nahta, Senior Film Critic and Business Analyst who moderated the session, said, “There is a whole controversy building especially after the death of Sushant Singh Rajput, making the industry a very dangerous place to work. But filmein dil se banti hai, dimaag se paisa aata hai. The mafia does not exist and it is sad to see people in the industry telling such lies and defaming their own fraternity”.

Moviegoers will quickly remember the ‘industry insiders’, the prominent names and faces, who were behind the exposure of the Bollywood mafia. We wonder what they will have to say about it now.
