Nepotism Debate in Bollywood

Sonam Kapoor’s Tweet

Of course parents will do everything for their kids. Of course kids born in richer families have distinct advantage.

What is repulsive about some Bollywood celebrities is that instead of staying quiet, they try to punch down. They double down on people who accuse them of nepotism. They break the unwritten rule that rich people get to keep money and influence and poor/middle class people get to talk/complain.

Remember the famous feud between Kangana and these three heros?

Some (or all) of them did apologized. Most mature people knew that they are doing a comedy bit at an award show. But to be proud of Nepotism and punching down never looks good in society, especially Indian society.

The affluent cannot have it both ways. They get to keep their wealth and influence and common people get to talk about it. I think it is a good deal for the rich. Nothing good comes out when they flaunt to the world on how lucky they are just because of the virtue of their birth. Nothing good comes out.
