The debate about nepotism in Bollywood came back in conversation after the untimely demise of actor Sushant Singh Rajput on June 14. His demise led to a debate on how much “outsiders” have to struggle in the film industry.
Earlier outsiders like Richa Chadha and Taapsee Pannu spoke in favour of the insiders. They believe that nothing matters more than the talent itself. They said that insiders do get their fair share of chances which are more than the outsiders but that definitely do not have any kind of impact in the long run.
Recently, the latest celeb to join the clan is Ayushmann Khuranna. In an interview he was quoted as saying,
“Star kids who are successful are genuinely talented.”
This didn’t go well with some people and one of the Twitter users called this act chamchagiri.
“After tapsee richa #Ayushmann Khuranna continue with chamchagiri of Bollywood mafias and star kids so chamchagiri require no guts but standing up against mafias and injustice require courage which even you lack aayushman”
Soon, KRK took the matter further and tweeted,
“Ayushman Khurana is supporting #RheaChakraborty and nepo kids for 3 reasons! 1) He has to survive in the Bollywood. 2) He is the artist of #YRF. 3) Sushant Singh was his competitor! Don’t worry khurana. Your films will also come n public will give you perfect reply. All the best.”
Further, Kangana Ranaut took a dig at Ayushmann and called him ‘chaploos outsider.’ Reacting to KRK’s tweet, Kangana said,
“Chaploos outsiders support mafia only for one reason and the reason is their mediocrity, nobody is threatened by them and they take full advantage of conflicts faced by few like Kangana and SSR by openly denying and mocking them-KR”
What do you guys think about this matter?
