Sonu Sood has a word of caution for outsiders, says, ‘Come only if you have nerves of steel and don’t expect miracles to happen’

The demise of Sushant Singh Rajput has opened up the insider-outsider debate in Bollywood like never before. People are upset as stories of how the late actor was cornered by Bollywood folks have emerged from various corners. In an interview with India Today, Sonu Sood said he did not belief the news about Sushant Singh Rajput’s death when he heard it initially. Later, he called up people to cross check. Sonu Sood also spoke quite candidly about the insider-outside debate in the industry. He said whenever an outsider became successful in the industry, it gave people immense hope, especially newbies. Sonu Sood said, “But when something like this happens, it leaves all of us heartbroken. People who come to the city and this industry from other parts of the country always fear that this place is not safe. Parents also have that sense. So what happened was not right because now those parents will be scared to send their kids here.” Also Read – Twitterati questions Kangana Ranaut’s stance for outsiders after she removed Sonu Sood from Manikarnika; calls her a ‘hypocrite’

The actor who is a mechanical engineer by qualification had to struggle a lot to reach where he is.

He said, “When I came to the city, I already had a degree in mechanical engineering, I thought people’s approach towards me would be different. But it wasn’t. I never got an entry into office. I realise in those first 6-8 months that is the journey is going to be tough. So the only thing I can tell outsiders coming into this industry is that come only if you have nerves of steel and don’t expect miracles to happen.” Also Read – Trending Entertainment News Today: Salman Khan reminds Iulia Vantur of her grandparents
