Actress Kangana Ranaut began the debate on nepotism in Bollywood on the talk show Koffee with Karan calling Karan Johar a flag bearer of nepotism.
Ever since then every star kid including the likes of Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Sonam Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha have been questioned about the prevalence of nepotism in Bollywood and during a recent interview with a magazine, late veteran actress Sridevi and Boney Kapoor’s daughter, Janhvi Kapoor, was asked about nepotism.
During the interview, Janhvi agreed that Nepotism does exist in Bollywood and how it made her question if she really deserved the position.
“The whole nepotism debate (when I was making my debut in Dhadak) did make me question if I deserved to be in this position and I realized that the right answer to it is that I’m not. I do come from a place of privilege. But I have it, so what am I supposed to do now? I’d be the dumbest person on the planet if I didn’t do anything about it. So I need to ensure that I make the best of it and push myself to work as hard as I can...only then can I justify that I’m worthy,” she said.
Besides nepotism, the young actress was asked about how she deals with all the limelight and attention that she gets from the media and paparazzi, to which Janhvi said, “It's a price that all of us have to pay. I think it's so flattering that people would even give me enough attention to know about my private life. I can't crib about it, I am not in that position. Plus, people wanting to know about you also comes from a place of love. So you just have to balance it; it's your responsibility. And honestly, I want this too much to complain about anything.”
Janhvi Kapoor made her debut in 2018 with ‘Dhadak’. She will next be seen in Karan Johar’s directorial film ‘Takht’. The movie also stars Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt, Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar and Anil Kapoor, among others.
