The nepotism debate is raging in Bollywood today. The audiences too stand divided given their opinions on the topic. While some support starkids, some are completely anti-nepotism. Kangana Ranaut sparked the conversation which soon turned out to be a debate in its own way. 

Recently, Ananya Panday spoke out on the issue and was at the receiving end of massive trolling on social media. Sara Ali Khan too shared her opinion on the topic and said that she's immensely proud to be Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh's daughter. Now, we met Taapsee Pannu who's made it big in the industry without any filmy surname or any piggybacking. 

Taapsee says, "It exists in your face so you can't shy away from it. The number of outsiders is slowly increasing so because of that, this is getting evident. It's now about how it's reported. One statement is written so many 1000 times. People ask us and then it gets amplified. Actors aren't doing that debate. We know it exists in our face from day to night. So I have stopped looking at it like a victim. I have accepted it as a rule of the game and I am trying to9 make my way despite thid hurdle which is what I'm doing."  

The trailer of her next film Thappad has hit the digital platform and has received a lot of appreciation from the audience for its bold treatment and subject. The film releases on February 28, 2020.

Lobbying is the word they use in the US!!

Do they think they are better than Ali Fazal, Richa Chadda, Kangana, Tapsee, Rajkumar rao, Jimmy Shergill, Kalki, Radhika Apte and the list goes on. Till date, Rajkumar, Radhika, Ali and Richa don't get the kind of opportunities like the ones these star kids are getting to start their career!! It took them all a decade of struggle to get where they are right now!

I have come to hate sara's arrogance. Nobody is questioning her relationship to her parents but the privilege that she enjoys by using her parents' network and professional relationships to get her first job. She is cunning and knows how to negate and shift focus from the subject matter.

In Europe, we call it "networking", and in Asia, it is "nepotism". There are jobs you will never even get to audition/interview for. When you do not even have access to opportunities, no mentors, career guidance, training, and safety net to begin with, can you imagine the odds that outsiders defy to make it in this cut throat business or any field where they are the first generation who managed to get higher education only to realize that the odds are stacked against them in real world.

True. It exists everywhere. I have joined a company in Europe n despite my expertise, promotions will go to their existing old timers unless I have a mentor promoting me. As simple as that. This is life.
