    Actress Aditi Rao Hydari feels that Bollywood has a beautiful side, too, and declares it is an inclusive space. Actor Sushant Singh Rajput's untimely death on June 14 has sparked a heated debate about "insiders and outsiders" and nepotism in Bollywood.

    With so much of toxicity in and around Bollywood and social media, how does Aditi keep herself positive? "Just by believing that one day it will sort (out), also by knowing that we can do something about it. No industry is devoid of flaws. We are also human beings, we make mistakes, we have our flaws, we oversee certain things but there is a beautiful side to our industry too," Aditi told IANS.

    Aditi then explained: "We all stick together, we are loyal, we stand together. Whatever people might say we really stand together. People have our backs."

    Choreographer Ganesh Hiwarkar on Sushant

    Choreographer Ganesh Hiwarkar recalls how his dear friend, late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, not only stopped him from committing suicide but also made sure his career as a dance teacher flourished in the city. He says Sushant gave him emotional, moral and financial support despite being a struggling actor and dancer at the time.

    "This was in 2007. It was Sushant's idea to make a brochure for my dance class. I did not have much knowledge about these things at that time. I would normally run my class with just five or six students. Sushant was associated with Shiamak Davar, and he told this was not the way. He told me I needed to advertise to get more students. He got Shiamak's brochure and calendar and showed it to me, saying this is how branding needs to be done," Ganesh told IANS.

    "Sushant not only gave me the idea for the brochure but created it, too. I still remember he sat on a computer all night looking for a suitable name for my dance class, brochure design and all that. The text was also planned by him -- what to mention for kids, what to write to attract adult students. He also posed for the photographs that were printed in the brochure," Ganesh added.
