When everyone tried to pull down Karan Johar due to the Kangana’s recent remark “Nepotism” on him, Alia has to something say on his mentor which surely people get a sense to blame Karan, next time. At a recent event when she was asked about her opinion over the Nepotism she said:

I think a star kid can get that first film due to nepotism. But to constantly get films just because you belong to a filmi family, is not possible. I don’t want to take any names, but there have been many examples of sons and daughters of lineage who have come and gone without achieving anything. What about that? Eventually, people come to see you as an actor and not because your family is famous, and you can’t fool them.

Hence, after Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt is his next favourite actress whom Karan has portrayed in his many films. Alia yet added on her above opinion by sharing her own struggle over the years:

I am aware people do struggle to make a mark in the industry, but it’s not right to blame nepotism. I didn’t plan my birth in the Bhatt family. I can’t change that and today, I am successful not just because my family is famous, but also because I have worked hard and you can’t take it away from me.
