Pooja Bhatt addresses nepotism debate & backing Kangana Ranaut: Facts don’t find takers, fiction does

Amid the raging nepotism debate that came under the spotlight once again after Sushant Singh Rajput's demise, Pooja Bhatt has now addressed the same in a series of tweets. On Wednesday, the actress-director tweeted about how the Bhatts' production house, Vishesh Films, has launched many newcomers and was once upon a time accused for not working with established actors.

Pooja Bhatt wrote, "Have been asked to comment on the hot topic Nepotism that people are raging about. As someone who hails from a ‘family’ that has launched more new talent-actors,musicians & technicians,than the entire film industry combined I can only laugh. Facts don’t find takers. Fiction does." She went on to say, "There was a time when the Bhatt’s were accused of having something against established actors & made to feel inferior for only working with/launching newcomers & not chasing stars. And now the same people play the nepotism card? Google & tweet guys & won’t even say think & speak." 

Pooja also touched upon how Kangana Ranaut was launched by Vishesh Films as they produced her debut film 'Gangster'. "As for Kangana Ranaut-She is a great talent, if not she wouldn’t have been launched by Vishesh films in “Gangster”.Yes Anurag Basu discovered her,but Vishesh Films backed his vision & invested in the film. No small feat. Here’s wishing her the very best in all her endeavours." 

She also added how their upcoming film Sadak 2 also will be launching a music teacher from Chandigarh who showcased his talent. "Even #Sadak2 gives birth to a brand new talent in the form of @Suniljeet72 A music teacher from Chandigarh who came to our office with no prior appointment,a dream,a harmonium & a brilliant song called ‘Ishq Kamaal’ that was absorbed into the film on first hearing by my father," Pooja tweeted. 

She concluded by saying, "Toh yeh ‘Nepotism’ shabd se kissi aur Ko zalil karne ki koshish karo doston. The people who have found their way into the movies through the springboard we provided over the decades know what we stand for. And if they have forgotten,It’s their tragedy. Not ours.Have a great day!" 

In recent times, Kangana Ranaut has vocally attacked industry bigwigs for sidelining talented artists and giving star kids the platform.

Gangster was anuraag basu film all over and since then he has gone to become one of best filmmakers of these times. Kangana worked with you, she was 16-17 and you should be glad about it.

ATleast, she has balls to stand up for Sushant. Who's good Adi chopra, Karan johar who didnt even blink an eyelid on death for the person they worked almost 8 years with . So dont bullshit Kangana.

Boycott Sadak2 all you want, any ounce of sense will tell you, if it is being released on OTT, it does not rely on your verdict to be a flop or hit. These are the same people who quietly ignored Son chiriya, pan sing tomar and the likes and now are ready to troll and abuse everyone in the name of Nepotism. If you were really supporting good talent Badrinath ki dulhaniya would not have been a hit and Son Chiriya would not have been a flop.

Anonymous : She is not taking a dig at Kangana. However, she is correct in saying that Vishesh launched a lot of young actors with no filmi background. That said, I think that Vishesh had a formula for low budget movies with great music so using established actors wouldn’t have worked. However, I think that they did what they have to do and gave strugglers a chance.

Notice the kind of films they have made with "outsiders" all like jism, raaz, paap, emraan hashmi and mallika sherawat type content. Give us break. Would you cast your darling alia in a jism or a murder kind of movie?? It was anuraag basu who gave a different role to kangana, it is to his credit.

Vishesh films made Kangana pay for the sandwiches she ordered on the sets while shooting for Gangster. They are that petty. No star, not even halfway there star or a star kid would want to work with them as they don't treat them well. Bhatt film's exploitation can work on vulnerable outsiders who are just about grateful to be working in a movie. This exploitation is part of nepotism racket too where outsiders have to be subjected to exploitation while talentless star kids get dream launch like Aalia did in SOTY.

Instead of throwing shade on those criticizing their exclusive club why not open your minds and see the point the overwhelming majority in this debate is making and then commit to do something about it. It would be a good place to start and then back it up by casting new talent and if the talent is there, nepos too. This way your movies might not tank. There is a bonafide reason netizens are angry this is not a group looking for a cause to champion. There is a problem and people want change. Don't ask: "What have I done to deserve this"?
