Ge­net­ics Rule

Slogan - - READERS’ THOUGHTS -

In his re­cent in­ter­view, Saif Ali Khan made a con­tro­ver­sial state­ment say­ing, “There is some­thing in the genes that makes many of Raj Kapoor’s de­scen­dants ac­tors or Pataudi’s crick­eters.” This state­ment is some­what true as rais­ing up chil­dren in an al­ready pre­pared en­vi­ron­ment helps them carry the same char­ac­ter­is­tics as their an­ces­tors do. How­ever, de­spite hav­ing sim­i­lar qual­i­ties, it takes loads of hard work and a life­long com­mit­ment to achieve suc­cess. Though ge­net­ics do play a lead­ing role in re­shap­ing one’s ca­reer, but one can never be­come a suc­cess­ful per­son merely on the ba­sis of one’s fam­ily back­ground. It was nat­u­ral for the Kapoor clan to mostly be­come suc­cess­ful ac­tors be­cause they were born and bred in that at­mos­phere. Even Raj Kapoor was the son of Prithvi Raj Kapoor, a theatre and film ac­tor. And by that re­cokon­ing, why didn’t Saif Ali Khan (Pataudi) be­come a suc­cess­ful crick­eter? An­daleeb Rana, Ghotki.
