In the wake of Karan Johar- Kangana Ranaut controversy, Vidya Balan recently expressed her views about nepotism while talking to a leading entertainment portal while promoting her upcoming film Begum Jaan.
Here's what the actress had to say-
I Didn't Have To Run Away From Home
In a conversation with Pinkvilla, Vidya said, "I personally haven't experienced that. I have absolutely no one in the film industry but I did have the luxury of choice because I am a Bombay girl. My parents and sister were extremely supportive. I didn't have to run away from home and survival was never an issue and therefore I am saying that it is a luxury of choice."
I Am Not One To Comment But My Experiences Are Different
But having said that, Kangana feels that way. To each his own. Everyone has different experiences. I am no one to comment but my experiences are different. There are camps but let's not forget that human beings have favourites."
How The Kangana-Karan Controversy Began
It all started when Kangana Ranaut appeared on the episode on Koffee With Karan and called KJo a flag bearer of nepotism in Bollywood.
When Karan Johar Accused Kangana Ranaut Of Playing The Victim Card
Later, things took an ugly turn when Karan Johar during a conversation with Anupam Chopra retorted that Kangana doesn't know the meaning of nepotism and she always plays the victim card. He had said, "I'm done with Kangana playing the woman and victim card. I am done! You cannot be this victim every time and have a sad story to tell about how you've been terrorised by the bad world of the industry ... leave it"
Kangana's Kickass Response To KJo's Accusations
However, that didn't deterred Kangana from making more controversial statements. She hit back at KJo and said, "I use every card possible. At the workplace, it's the badass card to fight cutthroat competition. With my family and loved ones, it's the love card. When fighting the world, it's the dignity card, and for a seat in a bus, it's the woman card. What is important to understand is that we are not fighting people, we are fighting a mentality. I am not fighting Karan Johar, I am fighting male chauvinism.
