Kangana Ranaut has been making the headlines ever since she has come in the forefront over the much heated debate on the nepotism. The actress had called out several big names in the ongoing debate and went on the make some sharp comments about the privileged insiders of the industry. While Kangana’s comment opened a can of worms, everyone has been brimming with an opinion about the same. Recently, Javed Akhtar also shared his views on the ongoing outsider-insider debate and emphasised that talent never goes wasted

During his recent conversation with India Today, the veteran lyricist asserted Kangana is an extremely talented actress and her existence in the industry is proof that you can be successful if you are talented. “Her very existence proves that talent never goes wasted. She is an extremely talented actress and she has become successful and she is an outsider,” Javed was quoted saying. Furthermore, Javed explained that every person has their own journey and own experiences.

Citing examples of rivers, the renowned lyricist asserted that every river has a different trajectory, but what makes them reach the ocean is the power of the current, the pressure of the water. “They reach the ocean only because of the power of their current and this the truth of life. Every person has a different topography of circumstances but you go through it and reach the ocean of success if there is power in current,” he added.

On the other hand, Zoya Akhtar also added her views on the burning insider-outsider debate and emphasised the Bollywood is an infrastructure which is accessible to anyone. She also lauded Anurag Kashyap for bringing several new talents in the industry. “He’s an outsider, he is a star. He’s introduced Nawazuddin, Radhika Apte, Kalki Koechlin, Vicky Kaushal and the list is endless. I can give you chapters of working artists that he has brought in.” Furthermore, Zoya also explained that it isn’t a debate about insider-outsider, instead, it is about “people that are privileged and people that are not”. As per the Gully Boy director, while anyone can make a movie if he/she wants, it is stardom they are chasing. However, she also emphasised that nobody can help you become a star as it is a journey one will have to take.

so mr smart akhtar will not address the issue . he will discuss kangana is big today (forgetting that these people only tried best to pull her down), what abt his kids who do not have any talent ? nepotism is not the main problem as every parent supports their children, it is a problem when nepo products like alia, ananya,varun, kareena, hrithik, countless.. try to undermine and throw away outsiders and non gang members (those who refuse to lick feet of bollywood mafia). sushant and kangana r perfect example of how u all deprive worthy people of opportunities and gang up against them to push them to dark till they became forgotten . what abt d abuse u people cause ? snatching opportunities ok ? gang bang is ok ? planned award shows and events ok ? speak up the liberals

I am sorry but both Farhan and Zoya Akthar are incredibly talented individuals who have made movies which are very different from the fun of the mill bollywood fare. Dil chahta hai is considered to be a landmark movie in Indian cinema and that was his first movie. Don't forget Lakshya,which inspite of its box office failure is considered to be a great cinematic journey. Let's be objective about these things.

Zoya Akthar has made 4 diffrent movies which has a beautiful nuanced examination of human emotions. I don't think she needs Anurag as a crutch. She was giving credit where credit is due. Anurag Kashyap is a pioneer in Indian cinema .

If thats the case, Why make it so hard for outsiders to prove their talent while nepo kids are provided red carpet? Truth is their existence and talent bothers Bollywood Mafia!!

His own kids are so entitled they feel they deserve every award for every movie and they threaten award shows if they don't do it. Case in point - Gully Boy, rip off of 8 Mile which no one mentioned in the media got all the awards. Ranveer was good but was he better than Vicky Kaushal in Uri? How does Alia even get selected in Best Actress category when she is in a supporting role let alone get the award!?

Gully boy is not a rip of 8 mile . Please do some research. It is based on the life story of Divine ( a very famous rapper from Mumbai ). There are similarities bcos underground rapping is similar all across the world.

Each time she’s bullied she’s been strong enough to raise her voice, everyone’s personality is not like hers. Have you ever publicly encouraged or appreciated her or any outsider before the SSR incident?

She has also turned into a bully now. Why did she and her team use cropped pics to prove intimacy with hrithik. The pics were later proved to be part of a group party where his wife was also present. She did not hand over her laptop and mobile to the investigating authorities making excuses. Learn to connect the dots, she is milking the feminism and nepotism angle to her advantage now.

When will they get it? Just because one outsider has made it in ten years, it doesn't mean Bollywood is accessible. to all. It ISN'T. As for Kangana, regardless of her talent, her career would have been over by now if not for Queen, a movie that went to a star kid first. As for the 'outsider' actors he mentioned as launched by Anurag, they have either disappeared or had to struggle twenty times more than less talented star kids to achieve a fraction of the success.

Her existence is proof that she is fearless and is surviving in midst of these gangs. India needed such person to slap Bollywood on face and get system in place. Whatever these Bollywood people say they have lost complete respect of public. Good it’s lockdown period else they would have been beaten up if they showed up in public now. Salute to this woman for exposing filth of Bollywood

Anonymous 3 weeks ago

Hope she stays safe. I wonder if she knows too many Bollywood secrets that people are scared she’ll open her mouth. What we need to remember is that her speaking out may help or harm her career. But it does help outsiders. Like it or not. It’s a fact. And we are the outsiders. It’s not a monarchy or a dictatorship. India is a democracy and this needs to come through in all aspects of life there.
