Delnaaz Irani, who is popular for her role in Shah Rukh Khan starrer Kal Ho Naa Ho, has requested people to give her work. Delnaaz, who has appeared in several TV shows and movies, recently requested for work like Neena Gupta. The actress also revealed that some of her industry friends are facing the same problem like her.
Speaking with RJ Siddharth Kannan, Delnaaz said, “I’m no Neena Gupta, but maybe someone will watch this and something will work out. There used to be connect directly with the directors and producers. Satish Kaushik saw Kal Ho Naa Ho and called me… These days, that connection has been lost. It’s more of going and struggling with the casting directors. This whole middle structure that is there, that is something I still need to fight out. It’s like, you have to go to their offices. There’s a lot of groupism, and camps.”
Talking about the monopoly of social media influencers in the current time, Delnaaz revealed that her friends have been struggling to get work like her. Delnaaz said, “My friends have told me that casting directors aren’t giving them work because they don’t have blue ticks on social media. These people have been a part of the industry for decades, they’ve played leads.”
Delnaaz is known for playing Kavita Vinod Verma in Yes Boss and Jaspreet ‘Sweetu’ Kapoor in Kal Ho Naa Ho. She has also appeared in reality shows like Nach Baliye 1 and Bigg Boss 6.
For the uninitiated, earlier, Neena Gupta had shared a picture of herself and revealed that she is looking for work. She had captioned the pic, “I live in mubai and working am a good actor looking fr good parts to play.”
Sikandar Kher, Nafisa Ali are among others who once asked for work on Instagram.
