The handsome hunk Muzamil Ibrahim is one of the top models of the country, who has walked the ramp for some of the renowned labels. He made his Bollywood debut with Pooja Bhatt’s romantic thriller Dhoka in which his performance was critically acclaimed. In an interview to Hindustan Times, Muzamil Ibrahim has talked about how the star kids manage to survive in the industry even if they have delivered a flop film and also continue to get more work.
Muzamil Ibrahim , who was also an outsider, stated, “The kind of buzz around me was phenomenal at that time of my debut. But once in the industry, it gets hard. But the star kids, even if they give a flop or do a bad film, they’ll keep getting films. Even their mediocre films are lauded and they survive merely on the basis of publicity and the word of mouth by their friends and family from the industry.” Sonakshi Sinha Quits Twitter and Disables the Comments Section of Her Instagram Account After the Nepotism Debate Online (View Post).
Muzamil Ibrahim also opened up about the competition within the industry. He further mentioned, “I’ve been on both sides of the rainbow. The film industry is one big family and there’s another family within that. They compete against one another, it’s fine with them as long as it stays within the family. When a genuine star potential comes across somebody who’s a threat to probably where they stand, that’s a problem for them. When you’re fighting for the A league, that’s when the trouble starts to happen.” Well, it is indeed not easy to survive in this glamorous world of showbiz.
