Nepotism has been one of the most prevailing and buzzing topics in Bollywood and it has been making the headlines time and again. Several star kids have been called out in this ongoing insider-outsider debate and everyone around is buzzing with an opinion. Recently, during an interview with Anupama Chopra, Kareena Kapoor Khan was also quizzed about the debate as she hails from industry’s first filmy family and also happens to be the mother one of India’s most photographed child Taimur Ali Khan. Talking about the same, Bebo asserted that nepotism might help you get a break, it cannot take you anywhere.

The actress stated, “Beyond a point, nepotism can’t go anywhere, it can’t fly. Being a star child might help you get a break; I don’t know anything after that. People outside the industry assume that if you are a star kid, it’s really easy to get a break, but let me tell you it is not true. Today’s industry is very different from what it was during the 1990s and 2000s. Today there are filmmakers who are like ‘everyone has to give a screen test’. If you are good you get the part. Aamir Khan screen-tested me for Laal Singh Chaddha as he wasn’t 100 per cent sure if I will be able to play the part and I did give the screen test. After all, being a producer and a filmmaker, he must be sure about it and I don’t think there’s anything wrong in it.”

On the other hand, Bebo also asserted that while Taimur happens to be a star kid, this will not guarantee his success in life. Instead, he will have to chalk out his own journey. “I will always wish for my son that he will be self-sufficient and self-reliant. Do what you want to do in life - you can be a chef, you want to be a pilot, do whatever you want to do. I just want him to fly and be happy with his life. It is not really necessary that he is having successful parents so he will be successful. In fact, his journey is going to start when he wants to start, he has to find his own path. His parents are not going to help him out in whatever way. My parents didn’t help me out. I was lucky as I was born to them and was known as Karisma Kapoor’s sister, but I feel my struggle was also different. Nobody helped me. So, let him take his own journey and create his path and me and Saif are very clear about it. We are just teaching him the right values as of now.”

Meanwhile, the Pataudi begum is really looking forward to welcoming the new member in the family. Talking about the work front, Bebo will be next seen in Laal Singh Chaddha and also has Karan Johar’s multi-starrer period drama Takht in her kitty.

IT'S NOT ABOUT THE BREAK! IT'S ABOUT THE UNFAIR TREATMENT & FAVORS FOR THE REST OF YOUR CAREER YOU GET CAUSE YOUR PARENTS ARE FROM THE INDUSTRY! I haven't seen blind items on Alia, or Ranbir or Jahnvi, but we've seen them on Sushant & Kartik & Katrina. I wonder why?! Star kids won't get drugged or forced to join camps to make sure their careers don't get ruined, but outsiders have to be EXTRA nice & careful to make sure they don't get screwed over! These people aren't just plain dumb, they're ignorant & narcissistic beyond comprehension!

why is everyone fixating on boycotting films and actors.. how is that going to help the cinema... if u genuinely are interested in good cinema then watch good content regardless of who stars in it.. its not necessary that all the movies with lesser known / artists will be good.. sonchiriya wouldn't have tanked if it weren't for the audience..a lot of us haven't seen the film even now and yet we are just bashing the "insiders" for it being a flop...y do we have to bank so much on the promotional activities to decide what we want to watch... be reasonable... if u think the content is worthy of a watch... go for it...

There she goes again with her BS. She needs to understand that as a person of previlidge when she says this it's arrogant and irrelevant. Just be quiet and don't comment without understanding the real problem. Millions come and go and never even get a break or a foot in the door. This whole cry is about making it a democratic process for people with absolutely no connections, money , network etc. She got screen tested for one film after a 20 year old career which she has made mostly on working with the Khan's. Please don't be so delusional. She needs a major reality check!

Audience is much wiser and smarter today, You cannot fool all the people all the time. Kareena you are going to get wake up call soon wait and watch when your movies even with Aamir Khan will also fail Audience has the power of movie sales tickets. Covid-19 does not help. I am surprised Bollywood Actors are still sleep walking and still very arrogant no one is humbling themselves. How all of you mistreated Sushant when he was alive and after his death. Audience has declare a War to Boycott Bollywood including so called best ones. RIP BOLLYWOOD.

Firstly : teach your child HONESTY then come with the big debate of how she was born privileged and Taimur himself was the star kid even before he was born and will follow being privileged

Nepotism isnt that you get introduced and a foot in the industry door. Its being given countless opportunities to succeed when clearly you possess nothing of value hence you fail or flop. Genuine outsiders of industries will only get the one chance to prove themselves and then they have to make it- if that- by themselves.

everyone gets what they deserve? Wow the privilege! In fact, there are MANY people who despite their hard work and continued efforts never get what they deserve due to the unfairness inherent in life, but you wouldn't know anything about that being a white-passing, wealthy and connected. I don't understand how these people with entire PR teams behind them allow for such ignorant statements to be released.

She's low IQ it's proven now- look at her basic English skills, for eg we will be having, we will be supporting him what kind of English is this? Has she stopped reading the books Saif recommends and forces her to read historical books lol. Also, she's just repeating what the film body issued as their statement as if she is smart to understand the dynamics and wants to take credit for the statement first. Once a bimbo, always a bimbo. Sad.

Her English seems fine... she was speaking, not writing, so minor errors when pausing or thinking are absolutely fine!

Nepotism is when all your SOLO movies until Cocktail are either flops or disasters at the box office and you still are relevant in today's time because of your being lucky and privileged. That's why (put your hands up) and REPEAT AFTER ME- "NEPOTISM ROCKS"

I think people like Kareena have the clout to shake things up in Bollywood. She sounds more mature today than she did a few months ago. Hope she works on her personal growth because she has to raise two kids. She needs to distance herself from the arora sisters and Karan, the truly superficial undereducated people with no self awareness. Saif has been a good influence on her.

Anonymous 3 months ago

Personal growth?? She's an example to other women. She values herself and others is plain to see. I do not know of anybody who is a great professional, fanstastic wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, daughter in law, sister in law and step mom. She seems to get along with everyone and everyone seems to love her! That is not possible if you are lacking or need growing!!

Anonymous 3 months ago

She’s been doing a fantastic job at being a mother raising a happy healthy confident child, a family woman and a talented glamorous actress who’s still doing leads after 20 years and maintaining nurturing friendships for over a decade and taking care of her social responsibilities as well. Her personal growth is not in question but maybe work on yours so that you don’t feel the need to judge harshly happy women from a distance.

She still doesn't get it. Stop making up for the rubbish you put out initially. Yup, we are not talking about current trends, but the culture in the Indian film industry. Promoting nonsense actors for no reason. Let me see Taimur turning into a chef one day because even when Taimur's dad acts like one the movie still flops. People have given their response long ago and stopped watching saif solo movies. Wake up. He is still getting offers as a flop hero because he needs to be self sufficient to take care of you and Taimur. Bas karo, nepotism pe aur apni half baked knowledge mat jhaado.
