The word nepotism has become a buzzword ever since Kangana Ranaut’s appearance on Karan Johar’s chat show Koffee With Karan. Yes, it all started with Kangana calling Karan ‘flagbearer of nepotism’ and post that, the word nepotism has taken over every interview and talk show. While some B-town celebs accept that nepotism does exist in the industry, some refuse. And adding another celeb to the never ending debate of nepotism is Sonam Kapoor who, on a recent talk show, broke down the meaning of nepotism and said that nepotism doesn’t mean a relative of a person, it means to get a job through any connection.

Sonam Kapoor said, “Everybody thinks that it's a relative of a person. Nepotism actually means to get a job through any connection. I think people have misunderstood it or are using the word for their own benefit, to put other people down,” adding, “My father didn't come from an illustrious family. He has worked in the industry for 40 years and he has worked really hard only for his children and if I don't take advantage of his hard work, which he has done for us, I think that will be a little disrespectful towards his work because every man or a woman, a mother or a father works for their children.”

It was only yesterday that Radhika Apte had said in an interview, “If I’m a director and my son wants to be an actor, why shouldn’t I launch him?” Well, everyone has a different viewpoint on the word Nepotism and clearly, when Sonam Kapoor says that if she doesn’t take advantage of her father’s hard work, it will be disrespectful towards his body of work and we think she has a point. On the film front, Sonam was last in Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga alongside daddy Anil Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao and next, she will next be seen in The Zoya Factor opposite Dulquer Salmaan.

And the award for the Most WTF comment of the year goes to Sonam Kapoorrrrrr
Congratulations Sonam for winning this prestigious award for the past 20 years

Isn't it already traumatic to tolerate your brother.

Lost your mind.
Nothing makes your parents proud when you stand on your own feet and make name for Yourself. That will help you with your self respect n self esteem.

How would it be disrespectful?

Sonam is a self proclaimed fashionista who tries too hard but fails miserably
