Kangana Ranaut has shaken the shackles of nepotism plaguing Bollywood and people are wondering if these 'talented actors' would have reached their pinnacle of success if it wasn't for their parents. Nepotism is shaking Bollywood to its core and Karan Johar, Varun Dhawan and Saif Ali Khan had to apologise for their "nepotism rocks" gag at the IIFA Awards 2017.
Below are the actors who 'made it big' in Bollywood, but you the readers should decide if it's talent or nepotism! Leave your comments and let us know what you feel...
Alia Bhatt is the daughter of Mahesh Bhatt. Film-maker Karan Johar took the sole responsibility of her Bollywood career (He still does). Well, looking at her acting skills, she's really talented and performs any given role as perfectly as possible. Maybe, nepotism got her in, but it's talent which made her stay!
Ranbir Kapoor is the son of Rishi Kapoor and he delivered both superhit films and flops equally. Despite his films bombing at the box office, he is the most sought after star in Bollywood. Without talent, nobody would run after him! So he is talent! Leave your comments below on what you think!
Sonam Kapoor is the daughter of Anil Kapoor and at the look of it, Sonam didn't really rely on her father too much. She made her own way into the industry after a point of time. Nepotism or talent? We guess Sonam is talent as she won a National Award for Neerja as well!
Varun Dhawan is the son of film-maker David Dhawan and in an interview, he revealed that he went for an audition for Aamir Khan's Dhobi Ghat without his father knowing and when his father sensed it, he was removed from the film. After a few years he lapped up Student Of The Year anyway! You decide if it's nepotism or talent that brought him to Bollywood and leave your comments.
Saif Ali Khan
Saif Ali Khan is the son of Sharmila Tagore and he recently opened up about nepotism, "We are privileged also in terms of getting an opportunity to meet a producer, which in itself is an advantage. But beyond that, only your talent can sustain you."
Kareena Kapoor is the daughter of Randhir Kapoor and when Kangana Ranaut called Karan Johar the "flag-bearer of nepotism in Bollywood," Bebo came to his rescue and said, "I don't take Koffee with Karan very seriously, probably because Karan is my brother and it's a fun show."
Tiger Shroff is the son of Jackie Shroff and he's really talented in terms of martial arts and stunts, no doubt about that. His movies Heropanti and Baaghi were hits at the box office and he didn't rely on his father much as well. He made his own way into the film industry after getting a safe break and is staying put with talent only.
