Priyanka Chopra, who made it in Bollywood without relying on family legacy, addressed the raging debate on nepotism in Bollywood
'The White Tiger' star Priyanka Chopra had a nuanced take on the nepotism debate that resurfaced in Bollywood after Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
While Priyanka agreed that favouritism cannot be entirely wiped out, she maintained that there is an extent to which it should be allowed and tolerated.
On Lilly Singh’s chat show A Little Late with Lilly Singh, Priyanka said, “I have written about it in my book quite a bit. The terrible thing about favouritism is... It's okay, everyone wants to take care of their families, right? We all want to take care of our friends and families, create opportunities. I want to do it,”
“But I think for people who have a large table, wouldn't it be better if we just start extending the table instead of just monopolising it? That’s kind of the thing about favouritism. It lacks giving other people the opportunity to also have a seat at the table,” she added.
Priyanka won the Miss World Crown in 2000 and stepped into Bollywood three years later, garnering acclaim for her subsequent movie roles. She has had a successful Hollywood acting career as well.
