Nepo­tism ex­ists in ev­ery field: Ar­jun

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

The nepo­tism de­bate re­fuses to fade away any­time soon. Ever since ac­tor Kan­gana Ra­naut ac­cused film­maker Karan Jo­har of be­ing the “flag­bearer of nepo­tism in the film in­dus­try”, mixed re­ac­tions have been pour­ing in, with the film fra­ter­nity tak­ing sides. The lat­est to join the de­bate is ac­tor Ar­jun Kapoor (right), son of film pro­ducer Boney Kapoor.Stat­ing that nepo­tism ex­ists in all fields and not just in Bol­ly­wood, Ar­jun says, “In ev­ery busi­ness, par­ents want their children to be a part of their pro­fes­sion and if the child is in­ter­ested, then they ed­u­cate him and make him ca­pable of work­ing in their pro­fes­sion.”

“Of course, it is a bit eas­ier for us [ac­tors], but at the end of the day, it is busi­ness. A di­rec­tor won’t take us if we are not saleable. So you have to be worth it,” adds Ar­jun, who would be next seen along­side Shrad­dha Kapoor in a film directed by Mo­hit Suri.
