After the sudden demise of Sushant Singh Rajput, we have seen netizens raising the topic of nepotism on social media and criticising Salman Khan, Karan Johar and star kids for making the late actor left out from the industry. Post that, many actors have spoken openly on how there are camps in Bollywood and how they mistreat outsiders. The Chhote Nawab of Bollywood, who is the son veteran actress Sharmila Tagore and father of new-gen actress Sara Ali Khan has opined about this trending topic.
In a recent interaction with The New Indian Express, Saif Ali Khan was asked about Sushant Singh Rajput and nepotism. He said, “He was a talented actor and a good-looking guy. I thought he had a bright future. He was polite to me and appreciated my guest appearance in the film. He wanted to talk about many topics like astronomy and philosophy. I got the feeling he was brighter than I was.”
Saif added, “I have no idea what Kangana was saying on Koffee with Karan because I don’t think like that. As far as Karan is concerned, he has made himself a large symbol and it seems like he’s attracting a lot of flak for it. The truth is always complicated. There’s much more to it, but people aren’t interested in that. I hope the tide is over and better things shine through. There is inequality in India that needs to be explored. Nepotism, favoritism and camps are different subjects. Even I have been a victim of nepotism, but nobody speaks of that. I’m happy to see more people from film institutes come to the forefront.”
