Abhay Deol has never been the one to mince his words and has addressed some of the biggest social issues unapologetically. Be it the current political scenario in the country or the issue of fairness creams, he has always put his opinion forth and lauded those that he deems correct. In an exclusive interview with Bollywood Hungama, Abhay Deol spoke about how blind items tend to have a deeper effect on those that don’t hail from the industry and has slammed their writers.
Speaking about the blind items’ trend in the industry, Abhay Deol said, “Rajeev Masand has gone for all of us. While Rajeev Masand talks about producers selling out and making formula films, he goes around writing blind items. I mean, there’s no journalistic integrity in that so I find the hypocrisy a little jarring. Until we don’t call out these people, they’re going to continue writing what they did. The difference between the actors and them is that we’ll call you out by your name and they will just hide behind the garb of ‘rumour has it’ and then just give you blatant hints to who it is. I’m glad that he is being called out, there’s no credibility there.”
“It’s shocking that people in power would do that, because how insecure do you have to be? You have already reached the epitome of success, why are you trying to legitimize rumours? Who are you serving if you’re writing blind items?”
