Naseeruddin Shah calls exhibitors and distributors ‘darinde’ | Hindi Movie News

Naseeruddin Shah who is known for his acting talent is also known for calling a spade a spade. Not one to mince his words, he pointed out various discrepancies that are plaguing the movie business.
He was the chief guest at an event organised by Film Heritage Foundation founded by Shivendra Singh Dungarpur. It presented the Lifetime Achievement Award for Cinema Projection to Mohammed Aslam Fakih, PA Salam and Lakhan Lal Yadav with over 50 years of experience in film projection.
In his speech Naseeruddin Shah pointed out that people who actually make are often paid the lowest money. He said, “The bitter truth is that those who work the hardest while making a film, their renumeration is the lowest. They stand in water till their waist and look after the broken electric wires. They carry reflectors. They carry bags on their shoulders and climb on the top and remain there throughout the day; nobody asks them for water or tea. Their payment is one-thousandth of those who sit on chairs under the fan while having sherbet and show attitude.”
He added, “The sad part is that this saga doesn’t end with the completion of the film. When the film gets completed and if it becomes successful, toh iski asli malaai distributors aur exhibitors naam ke darinde kha jaate hain (a major chunk of the income is taken away by the beasts called distributors and exhibitors). And those who make our dreams come true, nobody knows them, and they are neither given respect nor rewards.”
