In the recently released Netflix docu-series 'The Romantics', the YRF honcho, said: "One of the things that people tend to ignore, is that every person who comes from a privileged background is not successful. I can articulate it without mentioning other people. I can just articulate it by mentioning my own family."
He further mentioned: "My brother is an actor, and he's not a very successful actor. Here is the son of one of the biggest filmmakers. He's the brother of a very big filmmaker. Imagine a company like YRF who has launched so many newcomers, we could not make him a star."
In conclusion, he said that only the audience has the power in showbiz to make someone a star.
