Akshay Kumar Revealed Why Nepotism In Bollywood Sucks


After the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, the debate on nepotism and favoritism has once again reignited and the Bollywood industry is currently torn into two parts — one supporting nepotism and the other against it. The debate has taken an uglier turn and people are slamming star kids and are un-following them on social media.

A lot of videos have been going viral of star kids like Ananya Panday, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, and these actors are being hilariously trolled for many reasons.

Meanwhile, an old interview clip of Akshay Kumar has resurfaced on social media and is going viral. In the interview, Akshay Kumar can be seen talking about nepotism and how he hates it. Well, in an old interview with Arnab Goswami, Akshay was asked about if nepotism rocks. Answering this, Akshay said that his kids have to work hard for everything. He said:

“My son always travel in economy class, not that I cannot afford it, I can very much afford it. But when he does something, like he got his black belt, he was shifted to business class. So I always do that with my children.”


He also revealed how he has never given his kids the advantage of being a star kid. He said:

 “I have never given them the advantage of being my children. For him also, he has to work hard for everything.”

Akshay also said that if Aarav wants to become an actor than he has to run for it and work hard for it. He concluded: “So it sucks. Nepotism sucks,”

Talking about his work front, Akshay Kumar was gearing up for Rohit Shetty’s ‘Sooryavanshi’, which also stars Katrina Kaif in the lead role. The movie was initially slated to release in April, however, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the movie has now been postponed.
