In a conversation with journalist Rajdeep Sardesai, when asked about Nepotism in the film industry, Kareena replied: ‘There are so many superstars from yesteryears and not all of their children are a superstar. If nepotism exists, they would have been a big star by now.’
‘The fact that Ranveer Singh has become the new superstar of Bollywood who does not come from a film family proves the fact that they become superstar out of their sheer talent and hard work. Nepotism does not exist,’ she added.
Her husband Saif Ali Khan son of Actress Sharmila Tagore and Late Cricketer Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi had last year given a controversial statement stating nepotism is natural and that people who are exposed to actors in the family bound to be better actors themselves growing up.
At a time when there is hue and cry for equality, looks like husband and wife are turning a deaf ear to the issue.
