Megha.priya 6 months ago Karan is just a very bad influence for bollywood industry because of people like him outsiders fear to see big dreams in bollywood despite of having such a good talent miss our bollywood earlier time when nepotism doesn't exist in our industry and true talent gets reward

misfit007 6 months ago At the end of the day, films are made according to the content people will watch. In the long run where you come from doesn't matter if you don't have talent. Having connections will only get you so far and that's the same in every field. Not saying nepotism doesn't exist in Bollywood and that it isn't a problem, but it exists everywhere and has since the beginning of time. Many kids follow in their parents footsteps or their parents open doors for them where they can because they don't want their children to struggle the way they did. Their children's struggles will be different from their own and that's a fact. I mean so many doctor's end up getting their internships or residencies because of who their parents are but unless they are actually good doctors, will they last through the programs? People just jump the gun these days without putting themselves in the other person's place. I'd like to see who would refuse if such an opportunity was given to them and acting is what they wanted to do.

Ktptalks 6 months ago This is bad....none of us has seen her act...let her debut first...and these people who are trolling...if they were given a chance to produce a film even they would launch their own kids and friends if they will go on the street and invest all their money on a person they don't know...we all always do things for people we love and care about...lets not be a hypocrite...and if its about nepotism...all of us use our parents money for education, wedding...and our parents give their money and property to us... not to the next door neighbor

gurl-enchanted 6 months ago Samajh nahi aata kya boloon.. On one hand, it’s Karan’s right to choose whoever he wants to launch. And yet, it is so important for real talent to shine on the silver screen. Actors should be rewarded, not just star kids. I wonder if people are just trolling or genuinely will embrace change. Kyunki fact toh yahi hai na ki jo bikega wahi chalega? Fact yeh bhi hai ki art movies with real wonderful actors earn less than commercial potboilers. Toh fir kya karein insaan? Invest in celeb kids or give a chance to real talent?
