Nepotism word has been haunting Bollywood ever since Kangana Ranaut blew out of proportion in Karan Johar’s talk show Koffee With Karan. Amidst all this, star kids are facing the wrath of nepotism. Just recently Ananya Panday was brutally trolled in an interview for her nepotism statements after Siddhant Chaturvedi gave a smashing reply to her. Speaking of which, Housefull 4 actor Bobby Deol who is the son of yesteryear actor and most celebrated actor Dharmendra shared his views on the same to a leading portal. He said that this is just a new word that has become very popular and that everybody is a complainer; everybody likes to complain when they don't get work.
Speaking to Times Now, Bobby Deol was quoted saying that he didn't have work for years, "I think it's just a new word that has become very popular. Everybody is a complainer; everybody likes to complain when they don't get work. So, you find reasons for not getting work. The people who are not getting work are in the majority, so people talk about nepotism. I didn't have work for so many years but I never cried about it."

Bobby also said that he does not feel it is a necessity to have multiple contacts to stay relevant in the industry. Deol was quoted saying, "I am not someone who [intentionally] makes connections. I get along well with almost anybody. That's how I am. I feel I am connected to everybody. But does that mean you get work? (laughs) You just have to work hard; your work speaks for you. You have to make people take notice of you, that's how you get work." ALSO READ: Bobby Deol On Being Pressurised To Fit Into Dharmendra’s Shoes: “No One Says I Am Like My Father, I Am Different”
