Priyanka Chopra’s Take On Nepotism

"In my biopic, if it is ever made, you will play the stereotypical villain. One who is intolerant of outsiders. The flag-bearer of nepotism in Bollywood and movie mafia,” Kangana Ranaut’s statement on the famous talk show, 'Koffee With Karan', triggered the Nepotism topic in the industry. In all the interviews and discussion almost every other actor has been asked about their view on the same. The industry stood divided on the topic - while some applauded Kangana for speaking her heart out, some disagreed with her statement and some actually shared their experiences. Recently when the much-acclaimed actress Priyanka Chopra was asked; ‘Does nepotism exist in the industry?’ She said, "All kinds exist. There is nothing wrong in being born into a family that has a legacy. Outsiders don't have a foot-in-the-door access. Star kids have a challenging pressure of living up to the family name. Every star has their individual journey." On being asked about her take on nepotism, as she also doesn’t hold a filmy background and has faced her own set of challenges in making it big in the industry. She said, "In mine, I have faced a lot. I have been kicked out of films because someone else was recommended to the producer. I cried and got over it. Eventually, those who are meant to be success stories become that, despite all hindrances." On asking her whether the leading lady of Bollywood dread failure? Her Answer was a straight ‘NO’. She said, "I don't fear failure but I don't like it. I get grumpy when I fail, but I am not afraid to face it with the same sentiments of a debutante. I see the lives of celebrities as a marathon runner. There is a lot riding on us in terms of responsibility. If an actor falls sick and the shoot is cancelled, 300 people don't get paid that day. I treat it like a marathon. I have learned to respect everyone's job. I treat myself as an athlete and acquire that discipline. I work holidays, birthdays, and anniversaries. I have trained myself accordingly. There's a set goal, which I want to achieve and to get that, I know what it takes. There are no free lunches in this world."
