Recently, in an interview with Barkha Dutt, she pointed out that instead of understanding the situation, people are in attack mode. She further claimed that people should look for a bigger picture instead of looking at people from a privileged background. Kareena further said that 21-years-old career wouldn’t have been possible with just nepotism. She said:

“It is not possible. I can take a long list out of superstars’ children for whom it’s not been able to happen that way. The idea is to keep working hard and moving ahead.”

She added:

“It might sound weird but my struggle is there. There is a struggle but it probably is not as interesting as somebody who comes in a train with just Rs 10 in his pocket. Yeah, it’s not been that and I can’t be apologetic about it”,

Furthermore, she asserted that the audience is the final decider, who becomes a star and gave an example of SRK and Akshay Kumar, who entered the industry with no connections but became successful because the audience welcomed them. She added:

The audience has made us, nobody else has made us. The same people pointing fingers, they are only making these nepotistic stars. Aap jaa re ho na film dekhne? Mat jao (You are going to watch the films, right? Don’t go). Nobody has forced you. So I don’t understand it. I find this whole discussion is completely weird”

She added:

“The idea is that today so many of our biggest stars whom you (the audience) have chosen, whether it is Akshay Kumar or Shah Rukh Khan or Ayushmann Khurrana or Rajkummar Rao, are all outsiders. They are successful actors because they have worked hard. Whether it is Alia Bhatt or Kareena Kapoor, we have also worked hard. You are enjoying our films and watching them. So, it’s the audience that makes or breaks us.”

What do you think?
