Rightly said his acting is also like X-Rated types What are we even talking about? Commercial success if you market it well will be successful where is acting also looked into? What about the other actors? Just cause they do some stupid events on stage at some big superstar legs he is called his acting is good come on is this the barometer for acting and struggle? Other actors of theater (actual actors) who are struggling are not even reviewed
