Sushant Singh Rajput‘s demise has really begun to put light on the dark side of Bollywood and there are many holding the torch. Sushant committed suicide on 14 June and the reason for his death has been said to be nepotism, lack of work which eventually caused him depression. Many celebrities have come forward to share their experience as well of how they faced inequality in Bollywood. Abhay Deol recently made a shocking revelation about why he has boycotted the award shows of the industry.

Abhay took to his Instagram to share his experience with award shows during the time of ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’. He revealed that while Farhan Akhtar, Hrithik Roshan and himself were the lead cast of the movie, yet Hrithik and Katrina Kaif was made the lead couple of the film and Abhay along with Farhan became supporting cast.

He wrote, “Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara”, released in 2011. Need to chant this title to myself everyday nowadays! Also a great watch when anxious or stressed. I would like to mention that almost all the award functions demoted me and Farhan from main leads, and nominated us as “supporting actors”. Hrithik and Katrina were nominated as “actors in a leading role”. So by the industry’s own logic, this was a film about a man and a woman falling in love, with the man supported by his friends for whatever decisions he takes. There are many covert and overt ways in which people in the industry lobby against you. In this case it was shamelessly overt. I of course boycotted the awards but Farhan was ok with it. #familyfareawards Very creative artwork @kalakkii(sic)”
