That insiders have a high ground over untouchables in showbiz is one discussion that doesn't appear to fade away soon. Sharing his musings on the equivalent, vocalist actor Aditya Narayan, child of famous artist Udit Narayan, says the individuals who feel it's simpler for insiders, must comprehend the grass is consistently greener on the opposite side.
“First let me address those who think I’m privileged and would love to have the life I have, I pray with all my heart ki aagle janam mein woh koi bade insaan ka beta bane. When you want to become a cricketer, actor, engineer, doctor, and one of your parents have been a master in the field, you’d know how difficult it becomes for their children,” he brings up.
Speaking more about the contention he experiences, Aditya adds, “There have been times when I wish I wasn’t the son of Udit Narayan and then people would’ve taken me more seriously, and I would’ve been able to prove my point. I’ve also thought if my father wasn’t one of the most accomplished musicians in the country, there would’ve been things left for me to achieve. And above everything else, comes the pressure of expectations and comparisons.”
Alluding to the achievement proportion, the youthful vocalist states that those who’re really doing admirably in their calling are generally untouchables.
“If you think about the popular singers, actors, lyricists, directors, most of them don’t have a background in the industry. I agree it’s easier for us to get the first opportunity, but this industry is commerce driven. Only people who can churn profit will be employed. Talent is of course an essential criteria but unless your films or songs make profit, you’re nothing,” he adds.
Refering to the case of his vocation chart, Aditya clarifies there’s a motivation behind why his TV profession is showing improvement over his vocation as a performer at the present time.
“TV shows that I’ve been hosting have been doing well. I might be a good host but what actually is working in my favour is my shows getting good TRPs and sponsorship. Success has nothing to do with you being an insider or outsider,” he says.
The vocalist was in news as of late for uncovering he has just Rs 18,000 in his record and for declaring that he’s before long getting hitched to his long-term sweetheart, actor Shweta Agarwal.
Aditya repeated that his remark was misjudged. “No one was prepared for this pandemic or were expecting to go jobless for months. Many are suffering and they need to know that they aren’t alone. I also go through days when I’m worried about my EMIs, work etc and then there are days when things are good. The pandemic has led to anxiety and depression given the stress. By sharing my story, I wanted to share everyone’s concern. Good or bad, we celebrities always run the risk of being misunderstood. To make it clear, I haven’t gone bankrupt and can afford a marriage,” he closes.
