Vet­eran film­maker Sub­hash Ghai (right) says the In­dian film in­dus­try is driven by merit as there is open com­pe­ti­tion be­tween star kids and those from out­side the movie world.

“The most beau­ti­ful thing about the in­dus­try is that it is a mer­i­to­ri­ous in­dus­try. You have merit, you will win; be it kids of film fam­i­lies or from those from out­side. The com­pe­ti­tion is quite open, as some­times star kids win and some­times those from the out­side,” says Ghai.

“Shah Rukh Khan is from out­side, Aamir Khan and Sal­man Khan are from the film fam­i­lies, but Ak­shay Ku­mar is from out­side. So you’ll get many such ac­tors and di­rec­tors... Like I am from out­side, I was not the son of Raj Kapoor or Yash Cho­pra,” he adds.

How­ever, Bol­ly­wood has seen film fam­i­lies con­trib­ute to the in­dus­try through decades. “Film fam­i­lies have that kind of up­bring­ing. Like how a politi­cian’s son be­comes a politi­cian. It’s a norm. It comes in the genes and the train­ing takes place at home,” adds Ghai.
