fter the Parliament approved 10 per cent reservation in jobs and education for the economically weaker sections of the general category, there is another section of the population that is now demanding a quota – the creatively weaker class. Spearheading the cause is self-described actor Fardeen Khan, who will be carrying out a morcha for out-of-work thespians starting from Lokhandwala Back Road Joggers’ Park to a Lokhandwala Back Road coffee shop, a good 10 minutes way.

Khan and his supporters are demanding 10 per cent quota in supporting roles, such as Hero Ka Sidekick, Best Friend Who Can’t Act, the Hero’s Neighbour, and the Guy Who is Standing in a Circle as the Hero Raps. There is also a demand to restrict the number of outsiders in Bollywood. “Newcomers like Vicky Kaushal and Ayushmann Khurrana are taking over. At last year’s actors roundtable, there was not even one Khan. How can we let this happen,” demanded an angry Fardeen Khan.
