Veteran actress Ratna Pathak Shah who has been acting for almost four decades is known for speaking her mind. The actress is currently on the promotion spree of her new web series Happy Family Conditions Apply. And during her conversation with Film Companion, she took a jibe at new age actors and actresses for being completely dependent on the entourage business and not doing anything on their own.
Ratna Pathak Shah said, “And I’ve seen several good actors who have been affected adversely by this entourage business. Workout ki team jarahi hai aapki! Aapka saaara gym equipment jaraha hai. Aur phir aap karte kya hain? Performance aap dekho. Is that a valuable payoff? How much is that film earning after all the gym equipment, caterers and chefs? Did the film make the money that was put into it? Vo pehle dekho. So, it’s very silly. It has always been very silly.”
Ratna further recalled an anecdote on the plane. “I’ve seen actors on a plane who won’t even ask for a cup of coffee. The coffee is brought by the assistant. The assistant opens the cup. Actor takes a sip and hands it back to the assistant. What are you? A 3-month-old child? Ki cup bhi nahi pakad sakte aap apna haath mai? Iss tarah ka dependence! Life is more than just this. I find that so dangerous!,” said the actress.
