Rakul Preet Singh has clearly been one of those actresses who's completely made it on her own accord. From getting her first break to establishing herself as a proper lead heroine in Bollywood, might have taken her a few years but she's made it and how. With the whole nepotism debate being the current talk of the town, we decided to ask her what she thinks of the same.

Rakul, unlike most others, had a more practical approach towards the same topic. She rues, "If I had to join the army or do something which my dad knows about, he would have given me his advice. And it's too bad if some big producer is not related to me. It's fine. Eventually, it's only talent that takes people ahead."But she does agree that being an outsider comes with  their own share of struggles. "It might take longer and it definitely does take longer. They don't have to make those calls or messages. We have to keep messaging and hounding people till that one offer or call comes. But at the end, at some point, you have to just keep believing in yourself."

The De De Pyaar De heroine further explains, "If you're only talented, you will last long. If today, people say Alia Bhatt had it easy, I wouldn't say so. In fact, Alia is amazing and she's the best actor we havr today and she's proven it. At the same time, you have an Anushka Sharma who is not a filmy kid and is also amazing."

These c-grade actresses are so desperate for jobs that they can say anything to get into Kjo’s best books. Alia Bhatt, best actress u have ... like seriously? Keep brainwashing urself, not me. And definitely not the paying public. Bootlicker!

The topic that's most relevant to this lady is casting couch. Why not talk about that?

Alia Bhat is so over rated, she speaks too fast, screeches all the time with flared nostrils. Her dialogue delivery is the same in all her films, she doesnt have a great screen presence etc, without KJo , she would have been no where, she is so ordinary!!!

she's sucking up to Alia in the hope of getting her attention and probably getting in the nepo kid's good books.
Women with any combination of being - talentless, white/half-white(Katrina) /quarter-white (Alia), foreign citizen, nepo kids monopolizing Bollywood is the reason North Indian women like Rakul are doing telugu movies where they don't even understand the language and their careers are so short it ends before they can learn the language well.

Girl most actress in bollywood are talented but didnt got HALF of opportunities that alia got.. It is not about talent it is getting apportunity.. I think you are also talent but you dont got apportunity as alia got!! Are you understand now?!.

"she's the best actor we have today".Wtf!!This KJO guy is such an evil,how he forced his guests on kwk to choose alia over others and pissed off at those who do not.This is the reason some goes fake gaga over her and it seems dangerous for one's career if the person does not mention alia as the best actor.

Bootlicker. What's funny is Karan pretty much stated Anushka will never get anywhere since she's not as pretty or as perfect as the repo-girls and she became so famous and popular that he himself was begging her to be in his own movies see ADHM. So it's odd that's her second example. The most popular actresses are rarely Nepo-kids with the exception of Kapoors.

Anu is gorgeous and has always been. (she couldn't have been a model otherwise). Can't even be compared to the likes of Alia.
Karan is fake and stupid

Alia has been snatching work from established actors like deepika,priyanka,katrina and a lot more.And you dare to make such statement? Imagine having talent and looks but there's a rat face everywhere,jumping and grabbing all films that she does not even deserve.Kudos to Kangana for being the only one who dared to call a spade a spade unlike others who are always beating around the bush and butter up other parties.

Aalia plays the dumbcard in public ..Forever, licking KJo's boots.Its not what you know is important, its whose boots you lick. This might also get you a role in KJo film..Now its not hard to figure the math in so called Bollywood..

C’mon Rakul. Grow a spine!You are far better looks and talent wise compared to Alia Bhatt.Are you getting offers after your last movie?
Alia had everything served on a platter, she n her Kjo papa keep stealing movies from others. Dont give this crap of she being talented just to be in their good books..SMH

Bootlicker spotted but karan will never offer you even a cameo or item dance.

Alia had it easy and she still has it easy because of not her actual father but Nepopapa. she is working with any director she wants, she does any movie she wants, so don't tell me she had it not easy. Her papa Jo even made a movie Kalank specially for her to break her girl next door image and prove that she can be dreamy and royal like Deepika in Bhansali's movies

Good try Rakul. We all know how talented and how hard Alia had to work hard.Are you lobbying for Kjo’a camp

See who is trying to lick someone’s a**

Yes we should not say so.we all have seen her struggle ever since she debuted.In fact her struggles is paying off owing to her talent only not because she is mahesh bhatt daughter or karan favorite puppet.

It's high time these wannabes celebrities get educated before joining Bollywood. It might not be a requirement but at least they will save themselves from talking shit always.

How hard is it to understand the basic premise of nepotism? It is about equal access to the opportunity. It has nothing to do with blood relation. Doing the job is not a problem for either an Alia or an Anushka. Talent is not the problem in this country. Access to opportunities is!

think you are talking about favoritism and not nepotism. There is a difference.
