Suggestion for Youngers

Deepak Rao, my friend from Allahabad, called me yesterday. After formal questions he asked me if his cousin would come to Mumbai to make his career in acting? His phone was on loudspeaker. I suggested him not to send his cousin here for acting. I gave him my example, with no rupee balance in phone, wandering in Aram Nagar, Four Bungalows in Andheri West. One TVC ad, two digital ads, some episodic tv shows and just finished. Okay, everyone here is not like me. I also suggested that if his cousin is determined to come here, send him with time limits, and with enough financial backups too. Here trend has been changed. Everyone needs six-pack-abs, tall, fair, model looking heroic personality. Ok some exceptions are always everywhere but, I suggested to Deepak, if he watch TV artists, they all are rich looking, upmarket people. Mostly rich look is in requirements, average looking actors are rare who get continuity lead characters in TV. Of course, I am not talking about Marathi TV. They are much better than us.
Everyone has different experiences, different approach to observe their experience too, so their opinions are also different on same point. I would never suggest youngers to come in Mumbai for acting if they belong to poor or average financial backgrounds.
I didn’t talk to Deepak’s cousin. I think he would not listen me.
