Priyanka Chopra Reveals Being A Victim Of Nepotism, Says Cried After Losing Films
As the debate over nepotism has intensified in the Bollywood industry, there are so many big names that have come up to talk about their stories. Who knew big names like Priyanka Chopra or Akshay Kumar would be a victim of nepotism. Yes, Priyanka Chopra was a victim of nepotism and she has revealed the same in a past interview. She said that she was rejected by the producers as they wanted to cast someone else.
In an old interview with a leading tabloid, Priyanka Chopra said she was kicked out of films because someone else was recommended to the producer and she cried over it. The actress was quoted as saying, “All kinds exist. There is nothing wrong in being born into a family that has a legacy. Outsiders don’t have a foot-in-the-door access. Star kids have the insurmountable pressure of living up to the family name. Every star has their individual journey. In mine, I have faced a lot. I have been kicked out of films because someone else was recommended to the producer. I cried and got over it. Eventually, those who are meant to be success stories become that, despite all hindrances.”
In another interview, Priyanka said, “Nepotism and Bollywood go hand in hand. But there have been few incredible actors over the years that have been able to penetrate that and make a name for themselves and then create their own legacy. Which is also what I am also hoping to do. It was very hard. I did not know anyone. Everyone was friends with everybody when I joined the movie business. I was not very good at networking and going to the parties. It was a little difficult, but I kind of depended on the fact that I was not afraid to take on risky parts. I depended on the fact that I would do things and perform in my characters that when people come out of a movie they don’t recognise me they recognise my characters. I started working on the craft I started working on the art of it. Of course I learnt dancing and made sure I was good at that.”
