But there used to be more of a likelihood that either you had to be secretly film mad to be interested in the industry (like Karan, for instance).And/or because you grew up in a film family, you learned all this stuff by osmosis anyway. (Guaranteed to get you to do that extra ten minutes on the treadmill) Varun was also terrifying, and apparently used to be constantly checking things like the lighting and the stage set up before the show, while everyone else was still in bed because it was still hours to call time. Sure, it is bossy and hateful and irritating now, when he is just starting out.And then there is a quick comment about how Ranveer is like that too. But start with this attitude and keep it up, and 10 years from now when he is on top of the industry, people will be begging for his advice.
And it’s also been the case for years that the upperclasses tend to look down on mainstream Hindi films.
And maybe it is because they needed a fellow outsider to hang out with at parties and stuff, while everyone else grew up together and is distantly related and is super super “in”, and they are on the outside a little.
Plus, it’s a good career move, building those kinds of alliances.
And appearing on with a girl who is really just his friend, that helps the fantasy to live on.
What is not so great is the couple of minutes when Karan and Aditya talk about Parineeti like she isn’t there. And I saw it before, with Karan and Shahrukh and Kajol. They are discussing her career and the year or so when she sank into a depression and really had to work on herself to bounce back, and Karan and Aditya both agree that “she’s come out better, she’s in a really good place now”. Otherwise Parineeti might never have known how she felt.
