Amit Sadh has been working hard ever since he stepped into the film industry and has given out some noteworthy performances in his projects like Kai Po Che, Gold, Sultan or the latest-Breathe Into The Shadows. Amit being an actor since 10 years coming from a TV background recently talked about the on-going insider-outsider debate with ETimes. “I have put in years of hard work in this industry to reach where I am today. I feel that I could be where I am, because of someone’s goodwill and support. However, it’s also the hard work one puts in that gets the audience and the industry to laud your efforts and support you,” says Sadh about the bias towards insiders, as put by Bombay Times. “Having said that, can more be done for fresh talent? Is there a system in the industry that’s crippled? Can we diminish the discrimination? Do we need a debate and an introspection for all this? My answer to all these questions is, yes!” he added.

Amit while putting out his views also said that he believes it’s time that outsiders become insiders, and everyone applauds and appreciates those who are new to the industry. “If we give a hand to these budding actors and tell them that they are not outsiders, but very much insiders like any of us, then the industry will become a much better place,” he claims. “When a film is releasing, everybody asks who the main lead is. We tend to miss out on the other actors, who are also part of the project. We just don’t want anyone else to shine, especially when a film is also about others, who are an important part of it. Jo bade hain, jinke paas itna kuch hai woh agar newbies ko push kare, then, that will make them look more powerful. That is power, that is stardom,” the actor further added.


Sadh hopes for love and compassion to treat everyone equally saying “One should treat everybody’s son and everybody’s relative, like they would treat their own (in the workspace). We’ll have to learn to co-exist. It is possible if we decide to auto-correct each other.” After sharing his views on the issue, in the end actor quoted one of his fans message to him saying, “A star is not about being famous, successful or rich. It is about how inspirational or impactful he/she is through his/her work, and how it changes the lives of the people.”
