Actor Abhay Deol, who has carved a niche for himself in the film industry with unconventional roles, feels it is better to be a star than just an actor as people recognise you and you keep getting work because of your stardom.
“The truth of the matter is you can be an actor, but people don’t know who you are and if you are a star, people know you and you get the next project,” he says. “Unfortunately it is all about making money. And it is also all about getting the right project and the right platform. Unfortunately in Bollywood, it is better to be a star than an actor. There is no point in being very artistic when you are a star. You can at least work on your acting when you are a star,” he added.
The Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara actor admits that Bollywood is a very insecure industry as people here judge very quickly.
