Saif Ali Khan Breaks Silence: Ever since the death of Sushant Singh Rajput, nepotism is constantly being discussed in the film industry. Saif Ali Khan, who is himself a star kid and now his daughter Sara Ali Khan has also debuted in films, has shared many important things about it. Now once again he has talked about it and told that he himself has been a victim of it but no one talks about it.
Saif said, “There is inequality in the country and it needs to be brought to the fore. Nepotism, favoritism, and campuses are separate subjects. Even I have been a victim of nepotism but nobody talks about it. I am happy that more and more people from the film industry are coming forward with this.
Saif Ali Khan has done a cameo in Sushant Singh Rajput’s last film Dil Bechara. He said about Sushant,
“He was a very talented good looking actor.” I thought his future would be very bright. He was very polite to me and was happy with my guest appearance. He used to talk about many topics including astronomy and philosophy. It seemed to me that he knew more than me. ”
Saif Ali Khan has also expressed his impeccable opinion on nepotism in Bollywood many times before. Recently, he had described the celebs expressing grief over the death of Sushant Singh Rajput as a bunch of hypocrites.
He had said that no one cared for him while he was alive and is now showing off. In 2017, he also commented on the award received by Varun Dhawan and Karan Johar in an award show, ‘Nepotism Rock.’ After this, he told in the open letter how much nepotism is there in Bollywood.
Saif Ali Khan belongs to the royal family of Nawabs of Pataudi (Pataudi is in Haryana). His father was great Indian cricketer and former captain Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, who married actress Sharmila Tagore, a famous Bollywood actress of the 1960s and 1970s.
With such a bold statement yet coming from lavish family background, people are targeting Saif on being subject to nepotism giving reason he himself is a product of it while some fans are supporting him for standing out for the ugly truth of Bollywood industry.
