Sacred Games star Kubbra Sait defends Nepotism in Bollywood as she says the industry was started by just a few families

Kubbra Sait has made a distinctive mark for herself by essaying the role of Kuckoo in Sacred Games. Ever since then the actress has remained passionate about playing challenging roles in a film or show. Kubbra starred alongside Saif Ali Khan in Jawaani Jaaneman.

 
In a recent interview with Hindustan Times Kubra spoke about Nepotism in Bollywood. She said, "I think there is no short cut in this industry and everyone has to put in hard work. Let’s be honest, the industry that we are criminalizing for nepotism is an industry that was started by a few families, who wanted to tell stories. Even they have expanded and so has the industry as a whole. Instead of us constantly trying to pull people down, whether they are from the industry or not, we must pull ourselves up and work towards the progress that we want to see."
 
The actress also gave the example of many actors who have come from humble beginnings. She said, "We have got some extremely powerful examples in today’s world where the people are not from the industry background. There is Bhumi Pednekar, Ayushmann Khurrana and Taapsee Pannu, they are leading actors. I have taken 10 years to be here today. If I had decided to give up or if I had decided to deal with everybody else out there without being patient, it’s not the industry to blame, it is me."
 
Kubra also thanked Saif Ali Khan as she said he recommended her for Jawaani Jaaneman. She said, "Jawaani Jaaneman is extremely close to my heart because it is one of those roles which I got without an audition. I was shooting for the film in London when I came to know that Saif Ali Khan actually recommended me for the role."
