New Delhi: Ever since Kangana Ranaut expressed her views on nepotism in an episode of 'Koffee With Karan', the topic has created a buzz in the entire media industry. 

Various Bollywood actors including Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma have come forward to speak on the issue.

Now, veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah has also expressed his views on the topic. According to a Pinkvilla report, Shah said:

“I don’t understand why only the film industry has been accused of this. People in other industries do it as well. You don’t see people creating a major debate when businessmen put their kids in charge of their business. Or you don’t say anything to politicians who help their kids get into politics?"

He further added that:

“I don’t think it’s fair to talk about nepotism only in the film industry when it's prevalent in other places as well,”

“Isn’t that a very natural thing to do? Which parent wouldn’t want to help their own kid get a better way than they had in the industry? If one knows how things are in the industry, and your children want to be part of the same industry, it’s only natural that you would want them to not repeat the same mistakes,”
