“If you have not seen this film, they will throw me out of Bollywood. I do not have a godfather. You are my God and Father ”

Bollywood star Sushant Singh Rajput once said goodbye to Instagram. This post was about requesting audience support for the upcoming movie. These things Sushant said that day made everyone think after his death. People like Kangana Ranaut still call Sushant a victim of nepotism in Bollywood. Nepotism, which was much discussed after Sushant’s death, is back in the news after a while. Director Zoya Akhtar’s new Netflix movie ‘Archies’ has once again sparked controversy. Days after the release of the trailer, the discussion is not about the movie (The Archies).

Amitabh Bachchan’s grandson Agasthya Nanda, Shah Rukh Khan’s daughter Suhana and Sridevi’s daughter Khushi Kapoor’s debut film has been dubbed ‘Justice League of Nepotism’. While ordinary people work for years to get into film, many are questioning the benefits of fathers and mothers being superstars to their children. Even the color and costume of the characters in ‘Archies’ are under discussion. Critics have ridiculed the Indian version of the popular comic book, saying that the stars are not even seen as Indians. There are many who attack Netflix with the accusation that it is setting the stage for nepotism.

Kangana Ranaut’s recent interview with a private channel, which dared to describe Karan Johar as the flag bearer of nepotism, is now fueling the controversy. The actress was asked about the innocence that South Indian cinema is gaining over Bollywood in recent times. Kangana Ranaut’s response was to blame the stars. Studying abroad, speaking English, eating Western style. The answer was how Bollywood would go green when it tied up actors who could not be understood by the Indian audience and could not interact with the audience. Kangana Ranaut said that the children of the stars are like boiled eggs. This war is not going to end anytime soon anyway.

With the arrival of the ‘Archies’ trailer it has become a hot topic again. But there are also those who question why it is so uncomfortable to follow family tradition. Their defense is that Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan came to the film without Godfather. They say that if the father suffers from lack of money before going to the movies, it is childish to say that the children should also suffer. Those who compare Bollywood with South India are superstars like Allu Arjun, Prabhas, Mahesh Babu, Junior NTR and Ramcharan Teja.
They also argue that family traditions should be remembered.

In fact, what is the true nature of Nepotism?

Opponents and supporters alike have much to say. Ayushman Khurana, a National Award winner, is a successful actor who has mastered his talent without a godfather or acting tradition. Born into a simple family in Chandigarh, Khurana came to Bollywood after playing street plays and playing RJ and VJ roles. Khurana once said in an interview that she was 27 years old when she starred in her first film, Vicky Donner. Today’s young stars Tapsi Pannu and Kriti Sanon have stories to tell in the early days. Opportunities that have been taken have been snatched away by others. Tapsi has revealed the circumstances under which the daughter, sister or girlfriend of any celebrity or you felt that you were nothing. That is the fact.

If there is a cinematic tradition, the door will open easily. Otherwise, like Khurana, Akshay Kumar will have to overcome years of suffering and waiting. It takes determination to compete with the giants. According to Kangana, the mafia, the family rule and the North Indian lobby are facing many challenges.

Raj Kapoor’s brothers, children and grandchildren are the biggest star family in Bollywood. Youngsters ranging from Karisma, Kareena and Ranbir. Leading directors queued up to present everyone in the film. Another gigantic Kapoor family is the generation that includes Bonnie Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Sanjay Kapoor and their children. Arjun Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Janvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor, the heroine of the most talked about ‘Archies’, are all from this family. Now Salman Khan. Son of screenwriter Salim Khan, Salman starred in the film along with brothers Aurbaaz and Suhail, and the Khan family became a decisive force in Bollywood with their acting, production and directing. Salman’s brothers-in-law Atul Agnihotri and Ayush Sharma have joined the fray with this address.

After the death of Sushant Singh, on June 17, 2020, a lawyer’s complaint reached the Muzaffarnagar court. A case has been registered against Saunjay Leela Bhansali, Karan Johar and Salman Khan in connection with the actor’s death. It was alleged that they were the ones who pushed Sushant to her death. The petition was later dismissed. But after Sushant’s death, hate campaigns were launched against many of the above-mentioned dignitaries and their children. We have seen people beating Bhatt’s ‘Sadak 2’ which came with high hopes. Bhatt and others have been widely accused of pressuring the actor not to deliver on his promised films.

With the release of the ‘Archies’ teaser, critics are once again dusting off old controversies. Is Bollywood a monopoly of one section only? Ayushman Khurana, Rajkumar Rao, Vicky Kaushal, Priyanka Chopra, Vidya Balan, Sonu Sood and many others have made a name for themselves with their talents.

Not everyone from the star family is bad. It should be kept in mind that there are many who come in the force of relatives and know the footsteps. But tradition is the short cut to making it easier for actors to get into cinema. ‘Archies’ is only coming out next year.
