Mumbai : After Kangana Ranaut and AR Rahman, actor Ranvir Shorey also claimed that a gang exists in Bollywood. 

In a tweet, the actor claimed that a group of a select few powerful, corrupt old men and a select few second generation younger producers who have inherited empires try to control things in the industry.

“‘The Gang’ is essentially a mutually beneficial alliance of a few powerful, corrupt, crafty old men, and a few second generation younger producers who have inherited film empires. Their objective is to have control over the top of the pyramid and have pliable stars. #Bollywood,” the actor wrote on Twitter.

It may be reminded here, in a recent interview with a media house, Ranvir opened up about being professionally and socially isolated between 2003 and 2005, after his  fallout with the Bhatts. He admitted that the atmosphere got so toxic for him that he had to leave the country for a while.

“The fight for my place in the industry is still on, and I am still an outcast. It is not like that fight is over. After I came back, I had to start from scratch. I went back to doing television. I did The Great Indian Comedy Show and from there on, I’m making my own space as an actor,” he said.

“Now, thanks to streaming platforms, one doesn’t have to depend on those who controls theatrical distribution and media in the country, as far as the movie business is concerned. I have done parts in films which thankfully got some attention and notice. But that is definitely no thanks to me being accepted by so-called mainstream biggies,” he added.

Last week, Shorey referred to the despair he went through after allegedly being subjected to the 'modus operandi'

Ranvir’s next release is Lootcase, which is scheduled to premiere this Friday on Disney+ Hotstar.
