In an interview with Hindustan Times, Gulshan Grover opened up about the condition of senior and aged actors and what his friend Anupam Kher once told him. He said, “There is this major trend the film industry . Anupam Kher told me that several film houses and a particular casting director, Mukesh Chhabra has decided not to cast people who have been in the business for a long time. Just because we have been in the business for a long time, someone feels that a person’s ability has diminished or reduced, then you are a short-term gainer.”
Gulshan added how he has rarely faced such challenges, but asserted that he knows people who struggle to get good opportunities because of their seniority. “One of my mentors, Mahesh Bhatt sahib once told me, ‘hang your gloves before these mo*******s throw you out’. The world owes me nothing. You don’t just have to reinvent but also be a trendsetter. Unless you do both, your opportunities will reduce. I have never faced that difficulty, but I see several friends who are friends facing this,” concluded the actor.
