Ever since actor Sushant Singh Rajput left for his heavenly abode, netizens have restarted the controversial debate on 'nepotism'. However, this time, their anger is not restricted to only star kids, but also the Khans, who not only dominate the box office, but the film industry as well. Apart from the Khans and star kids, Karan Johar has also found himself at the receiving end of the netizens' wrath. Amid the ongoing debate, actor Saif Ali Khan also shared his view on nepotism and complained about being a victim of the same. His thoughts didn't go down well with the netizens, who without wasting any time, started trolling the actor.
For The Unversed, Here’s What Saif Said About Nepotism
While speaking to a leading daily, Saif said, "Nepotism in its purest form is something that even I have been a victim of. But nobody's interested in that. Businesses work like that. I am not going to take names but somebody's dad has rung up and said don't take him, take him in the movie. All that happens and it has happened to me."
Netizens Are Perplexed With Saif’s Statement; Here’s How They Reacted..
@keerthi551: "Wasn't Saif the one who praised nepotism in IIFA along with Karan Johar. He said nepotism rocks!! Didn't he?? Now damage control!
@urvashi.manocha: "His wife Kareena is a product of nepotism. He should be silent."
@wildforestwins: "Yes exactly like how your phone call goes for Sara! Some other girl's career would have gotten finished because this non deserving so called actress has a star father."
Netizens Reprimanded Saif For His Statement

@rasimforever: "Hypocrisy at its best. No wonder why everyone was so insecure and jealous from Sushant because he was honest and real not fake.
