Kangana Ranaut sparked up the debate of nepotism which is prevalent in the Bollywood. In the TV based interview with Karan Johar on “Koffee With Karan”, the Bollywood Queen opens up on the nepotism and made some hard-hitting remarks on the same.
In the interview, she said, “Nepotism debate did not affect her at all.” She further attacked Karan Johar calling him as “flag bearer of nepotism” and also accused him of running a “mafia movie”.
The actress also slammed the privileged Bollywood kids for not respecting the guidance they receive from their childhood and always complaining about the constant pressure they have from their audience and the critics since the day of their official launch in the industry. The queen star straightly cleared out and said “Do these Bollywood kids know that it takes almost 10 years to build an audience and to get a critic. These star kids already start from a point where they have everything and they are not aware of the fact that for an outsider, it can take his entire lifetime to reach the starting point.”
She continuing said “I got one critic after struggling for 10 years and no one cared whether I was alive or dead prior to me becoming a star. One has to earn their critics, so you are privileged, let me put this way and yes, it is not your fault. But at the same time, it is a democracy and we cannot let the society be segregated in this extreme manner and we have to make sure everyone is given the equal opportunities.” And bluntly proving her point she said “If the privileged Bollywood kids tag them as “lucky” then it is their very personal opinion of themselves. You might think that you are very fortunate but looking at the mediocrity you display, I might not think that. Hence, stop feeding it to me- “I am the fortunate one, so what?” You are feeding this to me but I don’t think you believe that.”
While Kangana attacked Karan on his chat show, but Karan hit her back saying “She was my guest and I had to hear what she had to say. She has a right to have an opinion. When she says ‘Flag bearer of Nepotism’, I just want to say to her, I am glad she knows what it all means. I don’t think she has understood the entire meaning of the term.” And ended saying “if she finds the Bollywood industry so bad, she might as well leave it.”
Well, it appears that the exchange of words and the debate made a lot of things clear!
