Nepotism Is Not A Problem: Bigg Boss Fame Raiza Wilson Spills Some Beans On Her Films, Film Industry And More!

Raiza Wilson talks about being an outsider and more!

Raiza Wilson rose to fame after her brief entry into the Bigg Boss and then won the audience over with her performance in her debut film Pyaar Prema Kadhal alongside actor Harish Kalyan. After her debut film, Raiza was not seen much in any films until Caarthik Raju’s The Chase came across her and Raiza was busy shooting with a skeletal crew throughout the lockdown keeping safety in mind.

In an interview with the Times of India, Raiza stated, “It all happened too fast. I was honestly worried about work as theatres were shut down and my movies were halted. Just as I was wondering about my life, I got a call from producer Sathish. Soon after, Caarthick gave me a narration over the phone. I loved the film and went for the shoot after a couple of weeks. It is a meaty role, and I play an ornithologist. We shot the entire film in Sirumalai, near Dindigul.”

“The first day was pretty scary, but after that, it was normal. Communication was direct as we had a limited crew,” Raiza further added stating, “I have no idea as film delays are not in my control. Alice hasn’t even started filming, but Kadhalikka Yarumillai and F.I.R were going as per plan. But the pandemic happened and delayed them. I’d also signed up for Hashtag Love, which was supposed to go on floors in May. So, yes, it does bother me and I am frustrated by these delays. But I am happy that I am at least getting to do films in different genres. I am not just another love interest in all films. And that gets me through.”

Talking about Nepotism and being an outsider, Raiza stated, “I am an outsider, but got my fame through Bigg Boss Tamil. The show gave me a lot of screen time and people knew me well when I made my film debut. I got one offer and then slowly other projects started coming my way. In fact, I am not even aware of this issue in the Tamil film industry. Nepotism is not a problem in the film industry; non-performance is. We need to be concentrating on inefficiency.”
