Actor Ranvir Shorey Narrates His Story As How He Survived The Toxicity Of B-town, Hints At Anurag Kashyap

Actor Ranvir Shorey Narrates His Story As How He Survived The Toxicity Of B-town.

Ranvir Shorey, recently made headlines when he lashed out at “independent film crusaders” turning into “mainstream Bollywood flunkies,” has shared his side of trials and tribulations he went through in Bollywood.

When a Twitter user urged him to take inspiration from Kangana Ranaut and not fear to publicly name the culprits, he said that he refrains from doing so because he has no hardcore evidence of their wrongdoing, and went on to add the wrongs done to him.

“I don’t take any names ‘cause I have no evidence to prove their complicity! But the reason I speak is, I went through the same professional & social isolation, bad mouthing & lies in the press, and psychological trauma from 2003 to 2005 with the same people who are now involved,” he wrote on Twitter.

As Ranvir points out, things got out of hand really bad and he was forced to leave the country at one point. The only reason he could survive the toxicity of the tinsel town was because he had the support of his friends and family. “The despair I went through at the time was enough to break me, but I survived thanks to my family and a few friends. I even had to leave the country because of how toxic the environment got for me. Coincidence? No. Modus operandi? Yes,” he wrote, adding that he was just around 33 years old at the time.

Moreover, Ranvir was recently involved in an ugly spat of words with director Anurag Kashyap, who took his tweets on ‘independent film crusaders’ as an allegation . “So many independent-film-crusaders have turned mainstream-bollywood-flunkies now. These are the same people who used to rant 24/7 about the ‘system’ for attention before they were given entry into the pearly gates of mainstream Bollywood. #Hypocrisy much?” the actor had penned on Twitter.

When asked Ranvir to be more direct by Anurag, he replied, “I don’t think what I’ve said lacks any clarity. It pretty much explains everything.” Anurag then went on to hit back saying ‘alone’ and works with many newcomers. “I can see what’s wrong with all that is going on and I see the game. Being played and people being used,” he added.

Ranvir then said, “I didn’t mention you, so why don’t you confess whose flunky you are, if you’re so gutted by what I’ve said.” He also asked Anurag to not just assume that he was the only ‘independent film crusader’ around.
