Kareena Kapoor Khan feels nepotism is overrated



Kangana Ranaut invoked the debate on nepotism in Bollywood on Karan Johar’s chat show almost six months back, but the topic continues to rages on. In an exclusive interview with Filmfare magazine, whose cover she will be seen gracing in the next issue, Kareena Kapoor Khan also spoke about the issue of nepotism.

She said, “A lot of things seem out of context. Doesn’t nepotism exist in every possible 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. 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.”


She further added, “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 why 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.”
