Well agree or not but nepotism is ruining our movie experience. While self-made stars like Shah Rukh Khan, Rajkumar Rao, Ayushmann Khurrana, Pankaj Tripathi and many more, continue to deliver great performances in the movies and inspire the whole generation with their hard work and passion towards their work. There are many talented actors who are still struggling to get some good projects in Bollywood.
On the other hand, there are many nepotism products, who don’t know even know how to act but are getting good projects because of nepotism.
Recently, during the Newcomer’s Roundtable 2019 hosted by film critic Rajeev Masand, Siddhant Chaturvedi gave a fitting reply to Ananya Panday’s take on nepotism. His reply is winning hearts on social media.
In one of the segments of the show, the host asked Ananya if it was easy for star kids to crack their Bollywood debut, to which Ananya Panday gave a long reply, claiming that her father has “never worked in a Dharma film or been on Koffee With Karan”. Starting her rant on nepotism, Ananya said:
“When people hate on me for nepotism, I am not going to shy away from the fact that I am Chunky Pandey’s daughter. My father has really worked hard. When Student of the Year 2 got delayed by a year, my dad actually didn’t even congratulate me till the film released because that’s how fickle the industry is. That’s how dispensable people are. Anything can happen, it can get shelved. It can release after years and he knows that. Mine has been a lot of personal experience, I have seen my dad go through so many things that I don’t take anything too seriously. I overcompensate sometimes. I am so scared that people may say that ‘oh you are taking things too lightly’ so I will come extra early to places. I am so happy that I have this chance.”
“I have always wanted to be an actor. Just because my dad’s an actor, I will never say no to an opportunity to act. My dad has never been in a Dharma film. He never went on Koffee With Karan. So it’s not as easy as people say. Everyone has their own journey and their own struggle.”
This is when Siddhant Chaturvedi interrupted Ananya Panday and said:
“Everyone has their own struggle. The only difference is ‘jahan humare sapne poore hote hain, wahan inka struggle shuru hota hai (their struggle begins where our dreams are fulfilled).”

Ananya Pandey : My Dad has never been in Dharma Productions, Koffee with Karan. So it hasn't been that easy.
Siddhant Chaturvedi : Bas difference yahi hai ki jahaan hamare sapne pure hote hai vahan inka struggle shuru hota hai.
