Kangana Ranaut stirred a huge debate on nepotism in Bollywood after her appearance on Koffee With Karan 5 where she accused Karan Johar of practicing it. The argument continued with many Bollywood celebs coming forward to give their views on the topic – some for the motion, and some against it.
Recently at an event, Kangana further clarified her take on nepotism and said:
If you’re talking about nepotism, it’s not an objection, it’s an observation. As an individual, it is my prerogative to leave my footsteps behind for the ones who will follow me. It is important they know where I fell, where I walked, stayed and ran…
She further said:
We should all work on it and not point fingers and make it sound like a fight to make the society more democratic for everyone.
She also said that she doesn’t consider herself an outsider:
What is an outsider?’ We are all working to make cinema. Anyone working for some other intention is an outsider. I don’t consider myself an outsider. Whoever comes from an unconventional background, they should work towards it and not say, “Oh we have been lucky enough that we didn’t face any discrimination or we are the chosen one, the industry has accepted us with open arms”.
