How celebrities reacted on nepotism debate

How celebrities reacted on nepotism debate

When Kangana Ranaut accused filmmaker Karan Johar of nepotism on his chat show, it was taken lightly as the conversation ended up on light notes. But later when Karan hit back at Kangana and said "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."

He even went on to say that "if she finds the Bollywood industry so bad, she might as well leave it."

This whole thing of nepotism has opened a platform and many celebrities have their own opinions. Here are few celebrities statements about nepotism in Bollywood.

Aamir Khan

I think it's a normal human tendency to try and help people who you love and care for. It doesn't have to be someone who is part of your family, it could be someone you care for. It's a very natural emotion. I try to make sure that in my work, I don't let it interfere. As a creative person, I am responsible to my audience and I give huge importance to that. I try not to bring in emotions in my work.

Alia Bhatt

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. 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.

Swara Bhaskar

I think more than nepotistic, Bollywood operates on relationships. It's not a Sarkari organization holding exams where you get through on the basis of merit. It's feudal in its nature where certain people have the power to make casting calls hence relationships matter. Of course, it matters if you are a star child. But look at Shah Rukh Khan, he is the biggest star and he is an outsider. So is Deepika (Padukone), Priyanka Chopra and Kangana. Talent doesn't remain hidden in the industry.

Sonam Kapoor

Every morning I wake up and it's great bathroom reading. It's mudslinging of the worst kind. I don't know Kangana. I know Karan very well. I find Kangana very entertaining and that's about it. I don't want to comment on something that looks opportunistic, honestly.

Amit Sadh learns skiing in Gulmarg!

Amit Sadh is quite passionate about traveling and never misses any opportunity to unwind on his high-end bikes scouting scenic locations.

The adventure junkie who loves trekking and climbing the hills is currently stationed in Gulmarg (Jammu & Kashmir) taking skiing lessons and learning the sport.

Amit has opted for a 4-day beginner course and is being trained by the professional trainer Fayaz. Interestingly, the talented actor who used to hate skiing because of the falls earlier is now eager to catch on with the sport and take it to the advanced level.

He says, "I used to go for skiing with my father when I was a kid! Now, it's like re-introducing myself to skiing, it's a great sport. I am doing a 4-day beginner course right now. I've had a few falls but they say in skiing, falling is a part of leaning. It is also very essential to do and learn the basics very well, since I am skiing after a long time. I'm getting trained under Fayaz, who is on the national team and very skilled and a great trainer."

"This is season's last snow and from April the snow will start melting! I aim and hope to be back soon and make more trip and brush up my skill for advanced slopes. Since I have spent a lot of time in the hills, my first love is climbing and mountaineering. Skiing takes a lot of patience and mental alertness. I told Ramu sir (Ram Gopal Varma), that I am of to skiing. He said, 'please come back in one piece. We have a film to release and promote,'" adds Amit.

Talking about Gulmarg, he says, "This is one of the most beautiful places in our country. The people here are beautiful, helpful and very warm. They work very hard battling the cold and making conditions safe for tourists and skiers.

Richa excited to join stand-up comedians on stage

Richa excited to join stand-up comedians on stage

Actress Richa Chadha is excited to do a special set with a few stand-up comedians here.

Richa said in a statement: "I think making people laugh is a tough task. And by doing so you can capture an audience like no other. Stand-up (comedy) is something I have always been intrigued by because it doesn't feel so rehearsed and these guys who are up on stage literally take the pulse of the audience and reactions and build their jokes or lines accordingly.

"And that I think is a commendable thing to do. I agreed the moment the idea of doing a guest portion for a stand-up comedy special came to me. It was an instant yes. It's going to be a whole new experience on stage which is far different from acting."

The script of the show is being worked upon.

Rudeshock: Amar Singh makes shocking revelations about Bachchans

Rudeshock: Amar Singh makes shocking revelations about Bachchans

Amar Singh has claimed that the Bachchan couple haven't been staying together for years now...

Politician Amar Singh, at one point, was Amitabh Bachchan's biggest confidante. Things have changed and so has their relationship. But Singh has now made some shocking revelations about the Bachchan family.

While talking to the media, clarifying the allegations levelled against him of creating a rift in the Samajwadi Party, he indirectly informed the press that Big B and wife Jaya Bachchan are staying separately.

ABP Majha quoted Amar Singh. He said, "People blame me for every possible rift in the country. When the Ambanis split, they projected me as the person who created the Mahabharat between them. It wasn't me. People have said the same about me and the Bachchans. But even before I met Amitabh Bachchan, he and Jaya Bachchan were living separately. One of them was living in Pratiksha and the other lives in his other bungalow Janak. There were also speculations about a problem between Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Jaya. I am not responsible for that."

While clarifying his stand, Amar Singh has ended up making strong accusations against the Bachchan family. We wonder how the Big B is going to react to this.

'Raees' a pure work of fiction, say makers

'Raees' a pure work of fiction, say makers

The makers of superstar Shah Rukh Khan's much-awaited entertainer "Raees" have said the film is not based on any real life story and is a pure work of fiction.

The clarification comes in the wake of reports that Shah Rukh's character in the film is inspired by about Gujarat-based gangster Abdul Latif.

"We are overwhelmed with the positive and encouraging response showered on the trailer of 'Raees' and we certainly hope that the pouring of love shall continue upon the release of the film as well," read a joint statement issued on behalf of Shah Rukh, Ritesh Sidhwani, Farhan Akhtar and director Rahul Dholakia.

The statement further read: "In view of certain media reports that claim that the film 'Raees' is based on a real life story and rumours to that effect being circulated, we take this opportunity to clarify that the story of the film 'Raees' is a pure work of fiction, Not based on any person; living or dead.

"All those making such claims, will realise it themselves, once they see the film. It is an imagined crime thriller set against the backdrop of Gujarat."

Set in 1980s Gujarat, "Raees" tells the story of a bootlegger whose business is thwarted by a tough policeman. The film is produced by Excel Entertainment and Red Chillies Entertainment.

The film also features Nawazuddin Siddiqui and marks the Bollywood debut of Pakistani actress Mahira Khan.

'Befikre' mints Rs. 34 crore in opening weekend!

'Befikre' mints Rs. 34 crore in opening weekend!

The film industry seems to be recovering from the demonetisation blow - slowly but surely. Last Friday's release, Befikre starring Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor, managed to collect Rs 34.36 crore in its first weekend.

Directed by Aditya Chopra, the rom-com has mostly done well in urban centres. Trade expert Amod Mehra said the film was expected to perform way better: "Unlike the filmmaker's previous films which had an universal appeal, Befikre caters only to the youth. The collections aren't up to the mark as you don't expect such an ordinary opening from a director of his calibre. The weekdays will be the real test for the film."

Trade pundit Komal Nahta agrees that Befikre has underperformed considering Chopra's past record although the collections remained consistent over the first three days. "Only the youth and the multiplex audience have given a thumbs-up to the film. It is likely to recover production costs, but only if it holds its own during week days," he pointed out.

Box office analyst Amul Mohan echoes his colleagues. "You normally associate these numbers with young directors and not a seasoned filmmaker."
