Janhvi Kapoor speaks out against nepotism allegations

15

The film directed by Shashank Khaitan and produced by Karan Johar is set to release on July 20, 2018. In most instances, ardent Bollywood followers are elated to read success stories of actors who have made it big in the industry with their perseverance and not necessarily, any backing or connection in the industry. Janhvi Kapoor has faced multiple allegations regarding Karan Johar promoting nepotism by launching her in the movie. While most people are touting it to be the ‘glamourised’ remake of Nagraj Manjule’s ‘Sairat’, Janhvi Kapoor seemed miffed and expressed concerns in an interview with Reuters.

Currently Karan Johar is busy with the promotions of “Dhadak” that stars Janhvi Kapoor, daughter of Boney Kapoor and late veteran actress Sridevi, and Ishan Khattar, Shahid Kapoor’s brother and has in the past avoided the word-'nepotism' in a string of interviews.

In an interview to Reuters, Janhvi addressed the nepotism debate. When asked if she feels its wrath on social media, she said, “I underestimated how angry people are. They are pissed off. But I can’t judge. I can understand where their frustration is coming from. It must be hard. I do feel cornered and bullied at times. Like, “why are you so angry?” Maybe I suck, but give me a chance.”

She further added, “I feel a responsibility towards them as well. I understand that you feel like you have been robbed of an opportunity that has been handed to me. I’m sure there are people who are more talented than me, and more good looking than me – I promise you there are. But I am not going to pass on this opportunity just because…. It’s a big deal for me. Why the hell should I give it up? The only thing I can do is value it and make the most of it. It is wrong and messed up if I take advantage of it, am complacent and think it is my birthright to be here. I know it is not. I know I need to earn people’s love. I know I need to work ten times harder because there is a stigma attached to how I’ve gotten this opportunity.”
