Vivek said when he talked to Basra as a personal friend, Basra was bitter about a fact in the Bollywood industry. The senior actor felt pity when stars were allowed to waste up to 70% of a film’s budget while fine supporting actors were not supported.

The Tashkent Files director agreed that he used to work with film stars who faked their image in public but got an enormous remuneration. Meanwhile, talent was not respected. Having said that, Vivek felt pity as Asif Basra didn’t talk about the great experiences he got in the industry.
