Sushant Singh Rajput has an interesting take on nepotism in Bollywood
Kangana, who was on Karan Johar’s ‘Koffee With Karan’ show in February to promote her then upcoming film ‘Rangoon’ had addressed him as the flag-bearer of nepotism.
Mumbai: A number of ‘outsiders’ have made it big in the film industry without the support of a godfather and one of them is Kangana Ranaut. The curly-haired beauty is fearless and so is Sushant Singh Rajput, who has carved a niche for himself purely on merit.
Kangana, who was on Karan Johar’s ‘Koffee With Karan’ show in February to promote her then upcoming film ‘Rangoon’ had addressed him as the flag-bearer of nepotism. Her comments triggered a controversy and subsequently came a number of reactions.
Sushant, who is himself an “outsider”, has been associated with a number of prestigious banners for his films. And now, he has expressed his take of the whole issue of nepotism in Bollywood.
According to a report in dnaindia.com, SSR expressed his views of nepotism on being asked about it at the trailer launch of his latest – ‘Raabta’.
Here’s what Rajput said, “Almost all the films I have done and the films I am doing in one and a half years and the films I really want to do are the many options and I had the luxury of choosing these films. So, from a personal point of view, I cannot complain. Having said that, it's not that it is there and it's everywhere in all sorts of industry, not just Bollywood. If you allow new talents from outside also to flourish and encourage them more, then it's good. If you don't allow that, then there's a problem and I think the whole structure of industry would collapse.”
