Ever since Sushant Singh Rajput
was found dead in his Bandra home all of Bollywood has shared their own experiences of nepotism. While many agree that newcomers don’t get a fair chance in Bollywood, Shreya Chaudhary does not agree. The actress recently said that social media has made finding auditions much easier in the film industry.
She said, “I hear a lot of interviews where people say, ‘Oh, I don't know if I would land the film or the web series.’ For me, I did not know if I would land an audition, because I was so unaware of anything. Where do auditions happen? How do you go about the entire process, like the introduction slate, etc? This is why when I was younger, I never thought it was an achievable dream for me to become an actor.”
“I think I was in my final year of college. There were these Facebook groups of casting companies that were putting out messages. Of course, you have to be extremely aware and cautious of how legit these casting companies were. Luckily, I had heard a lot about Mukesh Chhabra’s casting company. I read that he was auditioning for an ad,” she added.
She further added saying, “Most of these casting companies have a really good system – once you do an intro with them or audition with them, you are in their bank of actors in away. So that really started a relation of future auditions for me. So I was lucky in that way to even audition for these parts. And that's how I have landed every project so far.”
