Behind the glitz and glamour of the film industry lies a dark side of Bollywood which no one talks about and film-maker Vikram Bhatt opened up about how insecure celebrities really are in their personal lives. He said,
"(In India), I think people are too scared and insecure about leaving their place. If I accept that I am an addict, the producers are going to stop coming to me, and what if I stop getting films? What if my fans run away from me? It takes a Deepika (Padukone) to come out and say that I was depressed or Pooja (Bhatt) to say that 'I was alcoholic'. For the rest of them, I don't know if there is an image that they want to portray. Good for them then."
Also, Vikram Bhatt is all set to explore the dark side of fimstars with his upcoming movie Spotlight and it revolves around how insecure celebrities are and how they hide it in front of the entire world. He opened up about the movie and said, "Spotlight is not based on any true events or a person but it is based on many things that we have heard of actors who are facing oblivion. The outsiders coming into the industry and trying to make their mark, the whole nepotism argument that has been going on. It explores if there's a sense of promiscuity."
He summed it up by saying, "So, it deals with all those things that have been there in Bollywood for the longest of times." It's great to see a film-maker come out and show the dark side of the film industry and we're sure that Vikram Bhatt will end up shocking the audiences as no one really knows how bad the dark side really is.
