Saif Ali Khan Calls Himself 'Victim Of Nepotism',Gets Trolled
Even I have been a victim of nepotism, but nobody speaks of that. I’m happy to see more people from film institutes come to the forefront
Sudden demise of Sushant Singh Rajpoot sparked off the nepotism debate in Bollywood all over again. Kangana Ranaut too accused award shows of not giving Sushant due credit for his work. Now, Saif Ali Khan has also expressed his thoughts over the ongoing nepotism debate in a recent chat and shared that he too has faced nepotism but no one would be interested in it.
Even I have been a victim of nepotism: Saif Ali Khan
Saif Ali Khan, who is the son of actor Sharmila Tagore and cricketer Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, opens up on Sushant Singh Rajput and nepotism.
Kangana Ranaut has spoken several times against the alleged nepotism that she says is prevalent in Bollywood, blaming people like Karan Johar who, according to her, was the “flag-bearer of nepotism”.
In a recent interaction with The New Indian Express, Saif Ali Khan was asked about Sushant Singh Rajput and nepotism. He said, “He was a talented actor and a good-looking guy. I thought he had a bright future. He was polite to me and appreciated my guest appearance in the film. He wanted to talk about many topics like astronomy and philosophy. I got the feeling he was brighter than I was.”
Saif added, “I have no idea what Kangana was saying on Koffee with Karan because I don’t think like that. As far as Karan is concerned, he has made himself a large symbol and it seems like he’s attracting a lot of flak for it. The truth is always complicated. There’s much more to it, but people aren’t interested in that. I hope the tide is over and better things shine through. There is inequality in India that needs to be explored. Nepotism, favoritism and camps are different subjects. Even I have been a victim of nepotism, but nobody speaks of that. I’m happy to see more people from film institutes come to the forefront.”
Twitter users, however, are calling out Saif for calling himself a victim of nepotism, and 'reminded' him he was the son of veteran actress Sharmila Tagore and former Indian cricket captain Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi.
Saif Ali Khan:
Meanwhile, Saif has been spending time at home with son Taimur Ali Khan and wife Kareena Kapoor Khan amid the lockdown.
