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.”
