In the days following Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise, debates about nepotism and bullying in Bollywood have been triggered once again. There has been social media outrage, and several Bollywood biggies, as well as star kids, are being called out. Now, Bigg Boss 13 contestant Shefali Jariwala, in a recent interview, opened up about the nepotism debate, and how she landed her first break- Kaanta Laga. She also shared that if Kaanta Laga 2.0 was created, she would have loved to see Sushant Singh Rajput doing it with her.
In an interview with International Business Times, Shefali Jariwala said. “If Kaanta Laga 2.0 was created in today's times I would like to see Sushant Singh Rajput doing it with me. May God bless his soul. May he rest in peace. He was such an amazing dancer and a very good-looking guy. I knew him, I was acquainted with him but I never got a chance to work with. I would have loved to do Kata Laga 2.0 reloaded with Sushant Singh Rajput.”
She further said that she understands why the debate on social media after Sushant Singh Rajput’s death was happening; and that people were extremely affected by Sushant’s untimely demise and the way it happened. Speaking about nepotism, Shefali said that she herself doesn’t hail from a family with a film background. She recalled landing her first break ever- Kaanta Laga- as she was spotted outside national college. The song then became a huge hit and it changed her life.
“I am not a product of nepotism, I can't say much about it, having said that yes, there is favouritism in the industry. And it's not just in our industry it's there in every industry, people who are your friends you like to work with them,” said Shefali Jariwala.
