Htcity ENTERTAINMENT BOLLYWOOD HOLLYWOOD TELEVISION ‘NEPOTISM IS EVERYWHERE’
Actor Nimrat Kaur says that it is in each and every profession, but in cinema, the final word is with the audience
The nepotism debate clearly isn’t about to end any time soon. It started with actor Kangana Ranaut accusing filmmaker Karan Johar of being the “flag-bearer” of nepotism on his talk show, and Karan later retaliating at a talk at the London School of Economics. Ever since then, many actors have weighed in on the subject. Actor Nimrat Kaur (left) is the latest, to share her views. She feels it has been blown out of proportion.
“When you talk about nepotism, it’s in each and every profession. For example, a lawyer’s son will have an easy way of being a lawyer just by the virtue of having grown up in that environment... and having access to that environment,” she says, adding, “By the same logic, even an actor’s kid will have that advantage. But then it holds true for just one time as the final word is always with the audience.”
The 35-year old actor, says eventually what matters in life is “where you go, and not where you come from.” In this vein, Nimrat calls her journey, a “blessed and amazing” one. About the road ahead, the actor is excited about her upcoming web series titled The Test Case where she plays the role of an army officer. Nimrat says this role is close to her heart. “My father was an army officer, and now getting to play the role myself is like life coming a full circle. It’s a story of the first woman commander in army.”
