Pushkar Jog, who complained about the lack of screens for his Marathi film
in Mumbai theatres, opened up about groupism in the Marathi film industry. In an interview with Hindustan Times, Pushkar said there is no unity in the industry, and people are more critical here.
He said, “There is a lot of unity in other film industries. There is no unity in the Marathi film industry. There are people who criticize more than they appreciate. There are people who want to retain those who want to do good things for the Marathi industry.”
While talking about groupism in the industry, he said that lobbying and groupism are everywhere. However, people in the industry do not praise the success of Marathi films. He said: “No one glorified him (the success of
Pawankhind), not the media or anyone. Are they jealous? When I posted about it, no one from the movie reacted. I posted it out of love and tagged all the star actors. That’s what happens. This unit is missing. People here are more worried about uska accha nahi hona chahiye. I was afraid to say it earlier, now I’m not.”
Pushkar Jog also said that artists in the Marathi film industry are given child-by-marry treatment. He said web show and TV show creators offer them a very minimal amount. He added that people in the Marathi industry need to come together and glorify their own content.
Speaking of Pushkar Jog, he has acted in several Marathi films. He was also part of
Bigg Boss Marathi 1
as a contestant and became the show’s first runner-up. He has a few movies in the works. Fans can’t wait to see him in a new avatar now.
