Nepotism is the most controversial and hot-shot topic in B-town and everyone in Bollywood is giving their take on the topic. The term ‘Nepotism’ came into limelight when Kangana Ranaut labeled Karan Johar as the ‘Flagbearer of Nepotism’ and ‘movie mafia’ on his controversial talk show Koffee With Karan. Kangana Ranaut turned the dynamics of the industry upside down as she appeared on the talk show and become the controversial queen with this.
Kareena Kapoor Khan, who is a star kid herself and Karan’s bestie was yet to speak about nepotism. However, now the actress opened about it. She is quite bold and straight forward actress in B-town.
Taking a stand, Kareena stated, “A lot of things seem out of context. Doesn’t nepotism exist in every field? But nobody addresses that. In business families, the son takes over the business. A politician’s son takes over his place. These are not considered nepotism but in the industry, it makes for a nice read. Also, not many star kids have achieved what their parents have. So I don’t understand why people are going on about it.”
She continued, “Basically, the industry is a ruthless place. It’s about talent and survival of the fittest. Otherwise, a lot of star kids would’ve been No. 1 stars in our country. If there’s Ranbir Kapoor, there’s also Ranveer Singh who’s not from the industry. So honestly, nepotism is overrated. More than in business, more than in politics, in the industry it’s your hard work and talent that will take you far. That’s exactly the reason Kangana Ranaut is considered such a great actress. And she’s not from the industry. If there’s Alia Bhatt, there’s also Kangana. It’s not only about star-kids.”
Currently, Kareena Kapoor Khan is gearing up for her next movie ‘Veere Di Wedding’.
