The most recent Bollywood actor to discuss the reality of Bollywood camps is Aahana Kumra. The actress also discussed how she went two years without a job because she wasn’t a member of any camps in her recent interview.
Aahana Kumra opens up on campism in Bollywood; says, “Our industry is too superficial”
Aahana Kumra told Hindustan Times, “At the moment, I am shooting for a project in Dehradun. But I didn’t get any work for the last two years. I didn’t shoot for a series or anything. I was not being approached for roles. In the industry, I have noticed that actors who hang out with a certain set of people get hired again and again. I am not part of any of that circle. So if you ask me, if it affects me getting me? I’d say yes, it does.”
She also added, “I don’t go to the parties, or award shows. Our industry is too superficial. And it’s nice to actually come out of Mumbai. I have been very happy that I have been in Uttarakhand for the past one month. It’s nice to meet people outside of showbiz. I felt that normalcy in my life was going away, which has come back after spending the time here in Dehradun.”
Kumra said she has never really belonged to any of the camps in the movie business. She said, “I don’t know who are the people in which camps. For me, my camp is my close friends and my college friends. When I work with my colleagues, we finish our work, have a good time, and go back to our home.”
She continued, “It also bothers that people have made such a circus out of this business. It cannot be so unreal. it does exist, and does bother me where I am like, ‘Whoa, you are going to hire this actor just because he/she hangs out with a certain star’, but what can we do about it.”
Aahana Kumra will be soon seen in Cancer starring alongside Sharib Hashmi. The movie will mark the Hindi film debut for director Faisal Hashmi. It’s also the first Indian production for the international production house Lonestar Films. The film is expected to go on floors in May.
