31 Jul Nepotism And Selfless Love In Bollywood – Evelyn’s Secrets

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again – there’s enough fame and good fortune for everyone to go around. While most people are ranting about Nepotism in Bollywood, let me highlight some more positive thoughts today:

Recently, I directed my first music video for my dear friend Avina Shah and for a change, my work was done behind the camera. I was the creative director and did a lot of the planning for the video and boy did it feel good to uplift my friend and make her look beautiful! I’m super excited for this video to be released soon! While I love fame and being in the spotlight, it was a different feeling to also help her while she was center stage and just to put in the skills I’m blessed to have learned over the past 7 years in this industry. Fame is one of those things that feels good for a few moments and although it is a lot of fun getting dolled up all the time, there is something that makes me very happy when I make others feel beautiful and pass on the knowledge that was given to me. This is especially true when it’s a close friend of mine and someone I genuinely love and care for. After all, we’re all stars and deserve to shine!

Selfless love is something our world could use more of, honestly. Sure, it’s important to love yourself, but what about loving others the same way you love yourself? Not only that, but what about helping others, without expecting anything in return? Trust me, I realise that this notion is really difficult for many to grasp, especially in the industry I’m in. Sometimes it feels as if others are just trying to bring you down or may not have the best intentions. Why all the competition and negativity? We can be just as successful ourselves without bringing others down in the process and better yet – we can also help others achieve that same success! Nepotism happens in every industry, not just Bollywood. I guess we will always prefer to push the people closest to us and the ones we love most. It only goes wrong if we shut out people asking for help or worse: behave like they are less worthy.

I recently had the opportunity to work with Imtiaz Ali, who is one of the most encouraging people I have met in this industry. We got talking on a plane ride to Udaipur because Ranbir had mentioned a few good words about me to him after we worked together on YJHD. And this Friday you will see me zapping through the screen in JHMS, starring Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma. It was such a pleasure working with them! I have worked with a couple of really big names in this industry, but never have I met actors so secure in themselves that they only wanted to help you shine brighter. People in Bollywood like Salman Khan, Imtiaz Ali, Mukesh Chhabra to name a few are truly inspiring to me for always pushing new talent and helping them achieve their dreams. In every small way I can, I want to do the same and encourage young talent to go for their dreams!

What’s your biggest dream? And who is the most helpful person in your life?

    Dreams i feel are something to be preserved and worked on 🙂 In terms of being helpful –
    My ex as after the break up or cut off it helped me a lot to build a stronger character and renovate myself in every way.
    In terms of Nepotism i just felt it the most when Randeep Hooda didn’t receive award for Sarabjit.

      Yes life can seem unfair sometimes… But I believe, the reward will always come to the ones who deserved it. sooner or later justice will rain. And every difficult situation can teach us a lot, like a break up 🙂 I’m glad to hear you came out stronger than before! XOE

    If you reply, it would make my day. No wait it would make my YEAR.
    P.S You should watch the Aib podcast in nepotism with Ranbir kind of debunks nepotism for bollywood.
