Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor Khan, the grandchild of legendary actor-filmmaker Raj Kapoor, says nepotism does not exist in the Indian film industry.

The actress was present at The India Today Conclave 2018 along with her sister Karishma Kapoor on Saturday. In a conversation with journalist Rajdeep Sardesai, she was asked if nepotism exists in the film industry.

Kareena replied: "There are so many superstars from yesteryears and not all of their children are a superstar. If nepotism exists, they would have been a big star by now."

"The fact that Ranveer Singh has become the new superstar of Bollywood who does not come from a film family proves the fact that they become superstar out of their sheer talent and hard work. Nepotism does not exist," she said.

"I think it is about the talent that takes you where you go. When you are on-screen, anybody can make or break you; anyone can make a judgment on you irrespective of you are a daughter or grandchildren of someone," said Karishma.

"And for a youngster who has a huge family and legacy behind, is much tough to make a mark," she added.

While they were countered by Sardesai that "but Kangana (Ranaut, actress) said otherwise", Karishma said: "People can have their opinion and we should respect each opinion."

Bahahahahahahahahahahaha, I love it when Bollywood stars deny nepotism without researching what it means. And Bebo, Ranveer Singh is maternal cousins with Sonam Kapoor, even though he's much much much more talented than his cousin.

Kareena, you need first read up on nepotism sweety. It is the ease with which you kept getting movies despite giving a rows of flops at the beginning of your career and many talented actresses do not get offered despite their film/s doing well at the box office-eg. Diana Penty. I mean I fail to understand how can you talk about all this when you of all the people are the biggest example of the existance of nepotism!

Ranveer Singh is related to Sonam Kapoor. So this point is invalid
