Sonam, Alia and Varun are in the industry because of Nepotism?

These days Bollywood is highly obsessed with the two big words, 'Racism' and 'Nepotism'. While both are very much popular in the industry, let's talk about 'Nepotism' and keep 'Racism' at the back seat. Before discussing about 'Nepotism', let's know the meaning of it.

According to Wikipedia, "Nepotism is based on favoritism granted to relatives in various fields business, politics, entertainment, sports, religion and other activities". Another definition as per Google says, "the practice among those with power or influence of favouring relatives or friends especially by giving them jobs".

Nepotism is in many forms and shapes in Bollywood. Somewhere, it blooms up in the form of a film offered by an influential producer or production house to a star kid of their choice and leaving the other talented actors unattended. Today, everyone in the industry is giving their views and opinions on the same but is Nepotism so important an issue to be discussed? Is our industry really affected to such an extent that they can't shift their focus to something else?.

Let's take a dig on Bollywood's famous star kids and check out whether Nepotism has really helped them in shaping their careers or not.

1. Alia Bhatt

Introduction: Daughter of Mahesh Bhatt (Filmmaker)

Debut Movie: Student of the Year

Famous for: Highway (Imtiaz Ali) , Udta Punjab (Abhishek Chuabey)

2. Varun Dhawan

3. Sonam Kapoor

4. Ranbir Kapoor

5. Shraddha Kapoor

7. Kareena Kapoor Khan

These are some of the big names in Bollywood who may have got their first movie by Family's reputation and name but what about the hits they have given? There are some actors who have not even done a single movie from their home productions (Alia Bhatt is one of them) and yet they are doing good. Now, there have been many star kids who despite their lineage, couldn't survive in Bollywood, be it Jackky Bhagnani, Uday Chopra, Esha Deol, Shiv Darshan or Armaan Jain.

Nepotism may be the first step in the ladder to success, but it won't help an actor become a hit with the masses.It would be unfair to look at all the star kids with the lens of Nepotism.

Nepotism might have helped them get their first assignment, but their TALENT is what made them Stars!
