Bollywood is difficult for outsiders, says Shub Mukherjee

Mumbai: Actor Shub Mukherjee, who debuts in Bollywood with `Nakshtra`, says the choice of movies for people from non-film background is extremely important in the Hindi film industry.

"Bollywood has families, camps. Therefore it is very difficult for a person from outside to make a place for himself here," he said.

"While those from film background get several chances, others have to strike the right chord by their third or fourth film," the 24-year-old debutant told reporters.

The movie has been directed by Mohan Savalkar and stars Milind Soman besides Shub.
"I play Ajay, the lead character of a writer struggling in Bollywood. Eventually, he gets a break, but that leads to another problem, which forms the crux of the story," Shub said.

Before `Nakshtra`, Shub was assistant choreographer for Shiamak Dawar for `Dhoom 2`. He has also performed at the Melbourne Commonwealth Games in 2006.

Currently, Shub, who is basically an engineer from Delhi, is working on another movie tentatively called `Shakal Pe Mat Jaoo`. "It is a satire, written by me and stars Sourabh Shukla among others," Shub added.
