While the whole country is talking about AR Rahman’s statement about how a gang was spreading fake news about him in Bollywood, Oscar-winning sound mixer and designer Resul Pookutty has now opened up saying that he has also gone through similar incidences in Bollywood. He stated that he was not offered any job in the Hindi entertainment industry and that he had gone through a near breakdown when he got rejected.

Retweeting Shekhar Kapur’s tweet on AR Rahman’s statement, Resul Pookutty added that it was the regional cinema that held him tight. He wrote on the micro blogging website, “I had gone through near breakdown as nobody was giving me work in Hindi films and regional cinema held me tight after I won the Oscar... There were production houses who told me at my face, ”we don’t need you” but still I love my industry for it”. The whole issue started after AR Rahman said in an interview with Radio Mirchi about how he was not getting enough work in Bollywood.

It proves you have more talent than Bollywood can handle”. After Resul Pookutty’s tweet started going viral, he posted another tweet saying that he was not liking how the way whole nepotism issue is being discussed and added that he moved on and that he had not blamed anyone for not taking him in their films.

Sushant was facing the same problem. All the movies that recently came out were shot back in 2018 ( Drive , Chichore , etc). What project was he working recently ? He was left to work with Rhea and that Jarffry character.

How many bollywood actors get roles in south films? Do the say they are not considered? How many billywood music directors are given work down south? So why expect bollywood to leave its own and hire from.south? What nonsense

They dont have time to think to go to south because they always think how to deal with all this nonsense nepotism in Bollywood for survival

Exactly. Was about to say that. Truth is being laid bare. I think there is a general hatred and scorn towards anything and anyone associated with Bollywood. God save their films and producers for the next few years. Barely anyone is going to watch those.
