Looks like the debate on ‘Nepotism in Bollywood’ is never-ending. The topic went insanely viral on the internet when the Queen of Bollywood, Kangana Ranaut talked about it on Karan Johar’s show, ‘Koffee With Karan’. Kangana not only made strong points to back her argument but also called Kjo, “the flag-bearer of nepotism in Bollywood”. It was enough for a controversy to start. Since that time, Karan has time and again trolled Kangana by taking sly digs at her in context with her nepotism remarks. The recent one happened during a promotional event of Karan’s latest movie ‘Ittefaq’.
Almost every major actor of the film industry has been digging out this topic and expressing his/her’s views on it. Now, a South Indian actress, Kriti Kharbanda, who is all set for her next Bollywood film ‘Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana’ with Rajkummar Rao, has talked about nepotism and it looks that her comments are going to offend Kangana a lot!
Talking about her perspective on nepotism, Kriti told Indiatimes,
I look at it at a business point of view. For e.g. My dad is going to handover the business to his kids and not the neighbour’s son. His first choice will be his own child. Right? So why is that wrong here? Just because it’s entertainment where you get fame, I totally feel that’s unfair.
The actress even supported star kids’ easy entry in Bollywood and said,
Honestly Ranbir and Alia Bhatt have made it because of their talent. They may have got their first film a little more easily which is ok, that’s allowed. It’s not their fault they are born in film families. So if my dad is going to hand over his business to his child. I would expect Bhatt’s to give their legacy to Alia. David Dhawan is going to believe in Varun Dhawan before anybody else, it’s not like he is not going to make films with anyone else.
He’s made films with so many people but there is no harm of him having faith in his son. And from Varun, Ranbir to Alia they all have made it because they are extremely talented. You can’t buy a fan following, you can buy your first film but after that you have to earn it. Nepotism exists and there is nothing wrong in it because you will favour your child.
