It was two years ago, when Suhana Khan, the daughter of Shah Rukh Khan was heavily criticized for appearing on the cover of the popular magazine ‘Vogue’ with no projects, no movies to her credit. Also, last year, when Sara Ali Khan made her Bollywood debut, her debut movie ‘Kedarnath’ wasn’t even released when she was already shooting for her next movie with Ranveer Singh.
Nepotism has always been a part of Bollywood and it has always made self-made struggling stars doubt on their abilities. Recently, Bollywood actress Kriti Sanon opened up about nepotism in the movie industry.
Recently, in an interview, Kriti Sanon expressed how she waited three years to appear on the cover of the popular magazine ‘Vogue’. She revealed how she had to go through a lot and how nepotism led to the self-doubt she went through during the initial days of her career. She revealed:
“When you don’t come from a film family, you don’t get your second film before your first film releases. Which happens when you come from a film family, many times. To even come on magazine covers is a big deal. You have to go through a lot to reach that place. Like coming on a Filmfare cover for the first time.My Vogue cover was after about three years and I have done only one till now,”
“I just feel like those things, the small struggles which you sometimes see happening very easily with other people and you’re like ‘why, what?’. I am probably way more experienced. But I feel those are the times that you let go of the clutter in you brain because there are more important things and you have to start seeing the good side and the opportunities that your are getting as an outsider.”
Talking about her professional front, Kriti Sanon will be next seen in Mimi, which is being directed by Laxman Utekar. Mimi is a remake of the National Award-winning 2011 Marathi film Mala Aai Vhhaychay. In the movie, Kriti Sanon will be seen playing the role of a surrogate mother. The movie also stars Pankaj Tripathi, Manoj Pahwa, Supriya Pathak and Sai Tamhankar.
