Nepotism has once again become a topic of discussion post Karan Johar’s comment while hosting IIFA Awards 2017.
When unveiling the trailer of ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’, Anushka Sharma and director Imtiaz Ali were asked to give their comments on nepotism.
Imtiaz went first and said,
“We all 3 (me, Anushka Sharma and Shah Rukh Khan) are from outside the industry. I’m here because of love and affection from the film industry at that time.”
Anushka further spoke,
“I have been launched by a banner like YRF, who has always put talent before anything else. We all have to respect and value our experiences. Different people can be treated differently in one industry.”
Since Shah Rukh Khan, who was connected on a video conference call from LA, couldn’t get through, we couldn’t gather his comment on the same.
