Sridevi and Boney Kapoor

7th May 2009

The actors in my opinion have become smarter. If you go back a few decades you will see a lot of actors having a lavish lifestyle during their peak years and living hand to mouth when the work stopped coming their way. The modern actors are a lot smarter and they seem to consider their pension plans very seriously. I remember an interview of Suniel Shetty about his restaurant where he admitted "I am not a very good actor and sooner than later I will stop getting movies, this restaurant is to ensure I still have a comfortable lifestyle when that happens. And you thought he was all brawn, no brain.

The women too have become a lot smarter. In the stories I hear from my neighbor Mr. Aloke Dasgupta, there were quite a few who ended up in bad relationships, either with actors or with married producers, less as wives and more as mistresses. Just like men, women also consider financial security far more seriously now than earlier and this is evident in their choice of husbands, very few of whom are actors and lot of them are businessmen.

I guess this change in attitude has come from the realisation that cinema is also a business just like any other. The actors of the past considered themselves as an artist, today they consider themselves as brands.

Being an actress Sridevi has maintained a good figure and under no expectations to have a fit body Boney Kapoor has put on a lot of weight. Here he seems to be holding his breath to avoid looking too fat in comparison to Sridevi.
