Shah Rukh Khan, a boy from a non-filmy background rose to great heights in Bollywood with his acting skills says that he doesn’t understand the logic behind having a discussion on nepotism in Bollywood.
The debate on Nepotism started after Kangana Ranaut called Karan Johar the ‘flag bearer of nepotism’ in ‘Koffee with Karan’. The actor says:
“I don’t understand this (nepotism). How can I understand it? I am a Delhi boy, who went to Mumbai at the age of 25. There everybody loved me and accepted me. So, I don’t understand this talk.”
“I want my kids to make a name for themselves on their own feet. If they want to become marine biologist, then she should become that. If they want to become an actor or a filmmaker, then that’s also great.”
Following these statements, he stated that he does not even have an opinion on the topic. He further adds:
“I don’t understand this discussion (on nepotism). When I hear the word ‘nepotism’, I feel the other person is talking about Napoleon. Even though I know enough English, still I don’t understand it and the discussion. Whether I agree or disagree — I don’t even understand it so how can I have an opinion?”
