31 December 2022 (New Delhi): Shatrughan Sinha’s son Luv Sinha shares his views on how Bollywood is hiring people without talent for big projects. In a tweet, he wrote that even though he cannot speak Hindi or act, he will still be selected by the makers. Luv Sinha, son of Shatrughan Sinha, believes that the Hindi film industry gives a lot of opportunities to those actors who get as many surgeries done. Luv made his debut in 2010 with Sadiyaan. The sequel is under production by Anil Sharma. Also working in Gadar 2.
In a tweet, Luv said, “Hindi film industry gives opportunities to actors who are as plastic as they get. They can’t speak Hindi, Can’t act.” But they get work in big projects by talented filmmakers.” The actor hinted without naming anyone that Bollywood filmmakers are hiring people who don’t deserve them.
Responding to his tweet, a fan wrote, “I really hope that in 2023 there is a chance for newcomers like us who are well versed with the language and talent will get work in Hindi cinema.” Another fan pointed to Shatrughan’s success and said, “Son, it takes effort, look at your dad.. how he was introduced by Dev Anand Sahab, then played roles with gray shades and finally you got Kalicharan.” Saw.. wow.. he was fearless and dashing.
After debuting with Rishi Kapoor, Hema Malini and Rekha in Raj Kanwar’s Sadiyaan, Luv worked in JP Dutta’s Paltan (2018). He played the role of Second Lieutenant Attar Singh in the action film based on the 1962 Sino-Indian War. The multi-starrer film also featured Jackie Shroff, Arjun Rampal, Sonu Sood and Harshvardhan Rane. He will be next seen in Gadar 2 in 2023 alongside Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel. Luv contested the Bihar Legislative Assembly elections from the Congress party, but ultimately lost to BJP’s Nitin Nabin in 2020.
