Ac­tor Kiara Ad­vani (right) says nepo­tism ex­ists ev­ery­where, even in Bol­ly­wood, but that doesn’t close the doors for out­siders in the film in­dus­try.

Kiara, the grand­daugh­ter of late ac­tor Saeed Jaf­frey’s brother Hameed Jaf­fery, says, “It’s eas­ier to get something through con­nec­tions. But there are so many ac­tors who have made it on their own... [Like how] Priyanka Cho­pra has gone and achieved what no filmy kid has done. So, ev­ery­body’s jour­ney is their own. Your first film be­comes easy when you’re a star kid, but oth­er­wise your suc­cess is com­pletely de­pen­dent on the au­di­ence ac­cep­tance of you.”

Kiara — who made her de­but in 2014 with Ak­shay Ku­mar’s pro­duc­tion Fugly — adds that “there is par­tial­ity” but “a lot of peo­ple have risen above that, and out­siders have man­aged to make a mark”.
