The very beauteous and aesthetic actress ‘ Sargun Mehta ’ who started her journey with television has successfully taken herself to the silver screen with the Punjabi cinema industry. Being an outsider and having no prior contacts in the industry, she is the one who has paved the way of success by her hardwork and dedication. After being featured in some of the best Punjabi movies like ‘Love Punjab’, ‘Jindua’, ‘Angrej’ and ‘Lahoriye,’ this beautiful actress also got honored with the best actress award by Filmfare Awards Punjabi and PTC Punjabi Film Awards. But even after tasting success Sargun still hasn’t made any step in the direction of Bollywood industry yet. Asked if it has anything to do with nepotism debate, according to which only star kids get the right opportunities, Sargun says,
I have always had two versions of it. First one is, the good roles never come to us [outsiders], we are not even auditioned for them, because they are already taken away.She also went on to give an example,
You will have to really look in the past few years to see how many outsiders made it easily, or coming up in numbers more. Basically, everyone around is a star-kid. But then there are people like Nushrat Bharucha and Kartik Aaryan, who are making it. However, look at how they made it. Their films weren’t big-budget ones, or they weren’t invested in, or ‘launched’. They were the ones who made it, just because, like a chance, she says.Sargun, who has also worked successfully in television shows like 12/24 Karol Bagh and Phulwa also elaborates on the ‘other version’.
Say, my father runs a business, and today my brother is running it for him. There are people who have worked with him for 30 years, but today, my brother is the boss. That’s not fair, but that’s what parents do, and that’s what a legacy is supposed to be. Why would somebody work hard for 30 years if they can’t give it to their kids? Nepotism, I feel, sometimes is a little over-hyped and sometimes very true.Well after hearing her views all that we can say is, this stunning actress has a long way to go ahead.
