Bollywood actor Abhay Deol has talked about the debate of nepotism saying that he is happy because people are talking about it actively!
Abhay Deol has always been very active on social media, putting forth his opinions. In his latest post, he has talked about the debate of nepotism. He is veteran actor Dharmendra’s nephew and a got a break in Bollywood through him. But he says that he feels privileged for the opportunity he got. But at the same time, he went an extra mile to make his own place in the industry.
Sharing a picture of himself and his uncle, he wrote, “My uncle, whom I affectionately call dad, was an outsider who made it big in the film industry. I’m glad there is an active debate on the practices behind the scenes. Nepotism is just the tip of the iceberg. I’ve only ever made one film with my family, my 1st. And I’m grateful to be blessed and have that privileged. I’ve gone that extra mile in my career to make my own path, something that dad always encouraged. For me, he was the inspiration.”
It was Dharmendra’s Vijayta Films which had launched Abhay in B-town with the film Socha Na Tha.
“Nepotism is prevalent everywhere in our culture, be it in politics, business, or film. I was well aware of it and it pushed me to take chances with new directors and producers throughout my career. That is how I was able to make movies that were considered ‘out of the box.’ I’m glad some of those artists and films went on to have tremendous success,” he added.
Abhay further said that every talent should get a chance to shine in this industry. He also said that he is happy about the active debate of nepotism and how many people have shared their experiences in the past few days.
