Janhvi Kapoor Opens Up About the Impact of Nepotism on Her Life
Janhvi Kapoor, the daughter of late actress Shridevi and producer Boney Kapoor, has been in the spotlight since before her Bollywood debut. However, this time, she addressed the unpleasant remark made against her by the public regarding nepotism.
During an interview with the YouTuber BeerBiceps, the host asked Janhvi Kapoor, “Why is it difficult for you to think that you are an attractive lady?” To which Janhvi Kapoor smiled and replied, “I don’t know.” The host further asked, “What’s weird about it? Why don’t you just embrace it?”
Janhvi Kapoor explained, “Because I think that from a very young age, there have been versions of this nepotism debate that have made their way into my life. Small remarks like ‘You know why you did well on that test? It’s because your parents are famous. And the teacher is star-struck.’ Or like, ‘Oh, you only… this person’s only friends with you because they think you’re cool because you’re famous.'”
She went on to add, “So everything in my life, someone has taunted me about saying, ‘It’s not you they like, It’s not you they value. It’s your parents.’ So I think it kind of diminishes or makes you question what you have to offer in this world.”
Janhvi Kapoor’s comments shed light on the negative impact of nepotism, which has been a topic of debate in the entertainment industry for years. The actress has been praised for speaking out about her personal experiences and for bringing attention to a larger issue.
