After Abhay Deol, Ashwin Kakumanu opens up about marginalisation in the industry

Ashwin Kakumanu wrote, "I think people should maybe make an effort to just treat everyone with some respect instead of like dirt, and then treat them like a god later"

Following an Instagram post by actor Abhay Deol claiming that he and co-star Farhan Akhtar were  'demoted' by award shows for their film, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, actor Ashwin Kakumanu has opened up about the 'marginalisation and trivialisation' that 'happens on every level'.

Ashwin wrote, "Realised how much I had bottled in over the years. People who ignore and marginalise your efforts or worth, humiliate you and of course backstabbing (the list wouldn't be complete without that one) all the bitter experiences people go through just to do what they love doing."

The actor further shared how his name was omitted in a recent video that mentioned the director and all other lead actors in his film, Idhu Vedhalam Sollum Kathai. He questioned if the omission was an 'afterthought' and wrote, "People like to back the winning horse or what they think the winning horse is going to be."

One of Ashwin's popular roles is as police officer Ganesh in Ajith's Mankatha. He has also been seen in films such as ZeroIdharkuthane Aasaipattai Balakumara, and  7aum Arivu. His future projects include Mani Ratnam's Ponniyin SelvanThollaikatchi, and Idhu Vedhalam Sollum Kathai.
