Sayani Gupta, who garnered positive response for her debut film 'Margarita, with a Straw' and later on appeared in Shah Rukh Khan starrer 'Fan', feels big-budget creations of showbiz lack talent.
The actress shared her view of working in Bollywood and its nuances in the July issue of online fashion portal Jabong's The Juice magazine.
"In the bigger film, honestly, nobody gives a s**t about talent. Mumbai is a place of mediocrity. The day before, I read this article by Adoor Gopalakrishnan and he said - ‘We are actually habituated to seeing bad films. That’s why when one or two decent films come out, we’re like ‘OMG, this is great cinema',' " Sayani said.
After making her debut with a serious film with Kalki Koechlin, Sayani went on to play the role of Shah Rukh's manager in 'Fan'.
Talking abut shooting with Shah Rukh, she said: "For 'Fan', Shah Rukh had a 3 p.m. to 3 a.m. call time, which is also my favourite shift, because you can wake up by 12 and still have a nice lunch and have a couple of hours to yourself before you start work."
Now, the actress is all set for 'Baar Baar Dekho' release in September.
