Ishqbaaz actor Nakuul Mehta on nepotism: It's sad how many are using this topic for self propaganda; Read on

Nakuul Mehta, popularly known for his role in Ishqbaaz, says he agrees to what happens in the industry but sometimes power can corrupt people and use these topics for solving personal agendas. After the demise of Sushant Singh Rajput, many celebrities are talking about the malpractices in the industry. On this, Nakuul had tweeted earlier saying, "The talent of making everything about oneself can be a legit category at every Bollywood award."
 
Opening up about the same, he told a leading tabloid, "After Sushant’s passing away, the conversation started with mental health, which is important. But then it moved on to this blame game at a time when the industry is facing this huge economic slowdown and everyone should join hands in rebuilding it. Instead, this infighting is happening. Sometimes even outsiders who’ve gone through the struggle, become the bully. I think power corrupts. It’s sad how many are using these conversations for self propaganda."
 
He further added, "But whether I make nepotism my enemy or concentrate on making my skills stronger, attitude finer, is on me. Nepotism exists everywhere. Outsiders might have lesser opportunities, take a longer time, but talent finds its way."
 
Whether all these things he said points out at Kangana Ranaut, the 37-year old said, "Kangana’s opinion is her opinion. But as equal stakeholders in the industry, we must stand up for the right. Commercially, people might be on different levels, doing well or trying to do well but this labeling and categorizing is below dignity. These talks can also happen with respect and love."
