- "That's just the way media portrays celebrity kids," said Bobby Deol
- The debate over nepotism renewed after the IIFA Awards
- KJo, Saif, Varun took a jive at Kangana Ranaut at the IIFA Awards
At the launch of the trailer of the film in Mumbai, Bobby Deol was asked to comment on the benefits accruing to the son or daughter of a famous parent when they take the Bollywood plunge. "That's just the way media portrays celebrity kids when they're coming into movies. I don't think it's easy for anyone. You can be a kid of a star or be a normal child coming from a non-filmy family but you still have to work hard. Luck plays a part in it but you've to think positive. That positive attitude helps you," he said, reports news agency PTI.
The N-word crops up in all showbiz interviews now after a renewed exchange of fire between Kangana Ranaut and Karan Johar, who recruited actors Saif Ali Khan and Varun Dhawan in taking a jibe at the actress during the IIFA Awards two weeks ago. "Nepotism rocks," the three men chanted, after declaring that they had made it because of their 'Mummy' and 'Papas.' Months ago, Kangana called Karan Johar Bollywood's 'flag-bearer of nepotism.' In the aftermath of the IIFA Awards, the debate over favouritism and family connections has been resurrected.
