Elaborating on the so-called 'gatekeepers' of the film industry, Shorey wrote that it was time something was said about the “games they play, and their two facedness” and the “power they wield with zero accountability”.

 

Speaking to Times of India earlier, Shorey had spoken in detail about his Sonchiriya co-star. Recalling how Sushant was “very fond of astronomy”, Shorey had admitted that he knew how “fickle and ruthless” Bollywood can be at times.
