Well, now Alia Bhatt was asked to give her opinion on nepotism in the industry, a topic which was raised by Kangana Ranaut on Koffee With Karan. The actress stood her ground while saying, “I think a star kid can get that first film due to nepotism. But to constantly get films just because you belong to a filmy family, is not possible. I don’t want to take any names, but there have been many examples of sons and daughters of lineage who have come and gone without achieving anything. What about that? Eventually, people come to see you as an actor and not because your family is famous, and you can’t fool them.”

At the promotional event of her upcoming film Badrinath Ki Dulhania, Alia Bhatt also spoke that how she has nothing to do with the family background and has maintained her space in the industry on her own. She said, “I am aware people do struggle to make a mark in the industry, but it’s not right to blame nepotism. I didn’t plan my birth in the Bhatt family. I can’t change that and today, I am successful not just because my family is famous, but also because I have worked hard and you can’t take it away from me.”
The much-needed bang on the reaction by Alia Bhatt and we agree with you girl!
