Actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s tragic demise has reignited the subject of nepotism and the insider-outsider debate. Many celebrities are being subjected to trolling on social media. The recent one to come under the radar of trolls is filmmaker, Rohit Shetty. An old clip of the filmmaker talking about how he cast Sara Ali Khan for Simmba has gone viral. Rohit is seen talking about how Saif Ali Khan‘s daughter came to his office to ask for work.
Rohit Shetty said he cried and gave the role instantly when sara ali khan asked for a role.
Because, she is "saif ali khan ki beti"
Thousands of normal kids beg for roles, get rejected and ignored.
Clapping on these stupid stories is how we have normalized nepotism. pic.twitter.com/Iavg2WT6eP
