In an exclusive interview with IANS, Devoleena Bhattacharjee said, “There are two things… One what we say to stay politically correct, and the other is what we actually practice. These days, we get to hear people talking about the line being blurred between different platforms, be it TV, OTT, or Bollywood. But discrimination still exists and Hina was just stating the facts.” Also Read – Urfi Javed is a Smokeshow in a Hot Pink Cut-Out Dress, Internet Calls Her ‘Sexy’| Watch Video

The Saath Nibhaana Saathiya actor continued, “Even today when we go for an audition for a film, most of the time we get rejected with the tag `you are a TV actor`.

Devoleena went on to explain how for many new actors, such thoughts become worrisome as they fear that joining the TV industry as an actor might have an adverse impact on their careers. “Finding an opportunity becomes harder for actors like me, who have no background in the film and entertainment industry. Many tend to wait rather than work on TV shows because they that fear getting stereotyped might not fetch them a chance in the future to work in a Bollywood film,” Devoleena concluded.
