Before we get into how Sonam Kapoor, daughter of veteran actor Anil Kapoor, niece of Bonny Kapoor and Sanjay Kapoor, etc. defined “nepotism”, let us first discuss what “irony” means. A simple Google search tells,
The expression of one’s meaning by using language that normally signifies the opposite, typically for humorous or emphatic effect.
Sonam Kapoor fell face first when she ventured to define nepotism, standing in solidarity with her Bollywood clan, while representing the word herself.
#fya NEPOTISM: the practice among those with power or influence of favouring RELATIVES or FRIENDS, especially by giving them jobs.

The debate on nepotism was stirred again when Yash Johar’s son, along with Sharmila Tagore’s son Saif Ali Khan and David Dhawan’s son “cracked” a joke on Kangana Ranaut on an international stage. The joke clearly reeked of vengeful sentiments.
Twitter was quick to notice the irony in Sonam’s act of defining the word.
Please don’t make a fool of yourself by telling people the definition of nepotism. Point is yes it exists and u shld accept it.

Nepotism is greatly defined by your existence in this industry ……so don’t you try to give sermons.

And we thought nepotism is giving power to some set of actors who can make fun of some ACTORS at International platform
