Kareena Kapoor On Nepotism: If There's Alia Bhatt, There's Also Kangana Ranaut

Kangana Rananut started one of the biggest debates in B-Town when she called Karan Johar as the flag-bearer of nepotism. Saif Ali Khan became embroiled in the debate when he, Varun Dhawan and Karan Johar took a dig at Kangana at IIFA.

Recently Kareena Kapoor was asked about her views on nepotism in an interview with a leading entertainment magazine.

"A lot of things seem out of context. Doesn't nepotism exist in every field? But nobody addresses that. In business families, the son takes over the business. A politician's son takes over his place. These are not considered nepotism but in the industry, it makes for a nice read. Also, not many star kids have achieved what their parents have. So I don't understand why people are going on about it."

The actress continued: "Basically, the industry is a ruthless place. It's about talent and survival of the fittest. Otherwise, a lot of star kids would've been No. 1 stars in our country. If there's Ranbir Kapoor, there's also Ranveer Singh who's not from the industry. So honestly, nepotism is overrated. More than in business, more than in politics, in the industry it's your hard work and talent that will take you far. That's exactly the reason Kangana Ranaut is considered such a great actress. And she's not from the industry. If there's Alia Bhatt, there's also Kangana. It's not only about star-kids."
