Celebs who fearlessly spoke against 'Nepotism' in B-Town
The word 'Nepotism' is the biggest controversial topic spinning in Bollywood after the unfortunate demise of Sushant Singh Rajput. Whilst many star kids get an easy launchpad due to their background, there is a big list of those who struggle a lot to even enter Bollywood. So, as more and more celebs are breaking their silence on nepotism lets take a look at those who fearlessly spoke against nepotism.
Kunal had tweeted post the Disney+ Hotstar film launch event where he wasn't invited. 'Izzat aur pyaar maanga nahi kamaya jaata hai. Koi na de toh usse hum chhote nahi hote. Bas maidaan khelne ke liye barabar de do chhalaang hum bhi oonchi laga sakte hai.'
Vidyut Jammwal had tweeted when he wasn't invited to the Disney+ Hotstar film launch event, 'A BIG announcement for sure!! 7 films scheduled for release but only 5 are deemed worthy of representation. 2 films, receive no invitation or intimation. It's a long road ahead. THE CYCLE CONTINUES.'
Sonu has shared a video talking about nepotism and monopoly where he said 'You might soon hear about suicides in the music industry,it's very difficult for the new kids, very difficult... I speak to every one of them. They are troubled that the producer wants to work with them, the director wants to work, even the music composer wants to work with them but the music company will say: 'This is not our artiste'.' He also alleged that the music industry is controlled by two mafias, without naming anyone.
Ranvir Shorey had tweeted 'I don't take any names 'cause I have no evidence to prove their complicity! But the reason I speak is, I went through the same professional & social isolation, bad mouthing & lies in the press, and psychological trauma from 2003 to 2005 with the same people who are now involved.'
In an interview, Govinda had expressed his views saying 'Previously, the talented one used to get the movie. Every film used to get equal opportunities in theaters. But now, there are four or five people who direct the entire industry. They decide how the film will be released for people they don't know. Some of my best films were also not properly released. But, now things are changing.'
Sushmita broke her silence on the debate during an interview with PTI said, 'That competitiveness - or now everybody says this word 'nepotism' - is a truth you have known for as long as the industry has existed. With awareness, social and digital space, it has increased thousands of folds.'
According to a news report by Hindustan Times, Raveena, during an interview had said: 'There are bad people who plan your failure.'
Abhay had shared a post about his film 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara' captioning the post 'I would like to mention that almost all the award functions demoted me and Farhan from main leads, and nominated us as 'supporting actors'. Hrithik and Katrina were nominated as 'actors in a leading role'. 'There are many covert and overt ways in which people in the industry lobby against you. In this case it was shamelessly overt. I ofcourse, boycotted the awards but Farhan was ok with it #familyfareawards.'
Expressing her views on the controversial debate Esha had said 'It's a mental agony, especially for outsiders, only because our families don't understand how this world of cinema works. And this affects all of us n our families, the pressure is insane. Either they except us to be docile, or bed them.'
Kangna in her recent video had said 'On an individual happens openly, and we all are all guilty of watching it silently. Is blaming the system enough? Will there ever be change? Are we going to see a monumental shift in the narrative on how outsiders are treated?.'
