Shekhar Suman Shreds "Young Actors": Want To Be Seen Everywhere, Act Surprised When...

Shekhar Suman, who is set to make a grand comeback in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's much-awaited series Heeramandi, opened up about the changes that the industry has gone through over the years in an interview with Bollywood Now. Shekhar Suman said that actors of today's generation "want stardom overnight." Speaking of today's actors' temperament, Shekhar said, "There are many good things in this era too. But there are also shortcomings. All these new young actors want fame very soon in their life. They want stardom overnight, they want to be seen everywhere, everyone should talk about them, reels are being made. Dikh dikh ke pareshaan hai aur log dekh dekh ke pareshaan (People get annoyed to see them everywhere). They are being spotted at their homes, airports and gyms. And everywhere they act surprised like they didn't know people are going to be there, given those people are called by them."

Speaking of enhanced professionalism and discipline in today's industry, Shekhar said, "Film shoots are far more organised now." FYI, Shekhar Suman and son Adhyayan Suman will feature in Heeramandi.

Introducing Shekhar Suman's character Zulfikar in the series, Netflix India wrote in the caption, "Laying his allegiance at Mallikajaan's feet, only one thing stands between Zulfikar and his shimmering ambition - Heeramandi. The versatile Shekhar Suman stars as Zulfikar." Take a look:
