Ranbir Kapoor signed up with the raging nepotism controversy in Bollywood when he sat down within an interview with funny group All India Bakchod (AIB) to promote his new film Jagga Jasoos.
Ranbir Kapoor sat down with the humor group All India Bakchod to promote his new film, Jagga Jasoos, in a two-part interview that was published on AIB’s YouTube page on Tuesday. Before requesting him about his film, hosts Tanmay Bhat, Gursimran Khamba, Rohan Joshi and Ashish Shakya, asked him about the most pressing concern in Bollywood today: Nepotism.
“Our visitor today originates from the family of Prithvi Raj Kapoor, Raj Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor, Randhir Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor and Karisma Kapoor,” said Tanmay, producing Ranbir. “My question for you Ranbir is do you believe nepotism prevails in Bollywood?”
“I am a ‘disarming’ product than it,” laughed Ranbir, directing to the slogan on his clothing, which read ‘disarming’.
“Obviously it prevails. I’m seated here next for you guys (because from it). I have a simple undertake nepotism: I assume that my great-grandfather worked hard to give his children a system, etc etc. I became an professional because of my children, and because I acquired the chance, and the thing is you do not really get credit for your success because everyone just appears down after your success,” he said.
“It has taken you exactly 45 moments to begin complaining about how amazing your daily life is,” said Joshi.
Ranbir’s commentary come days after filmmaker Karan Johar and celebrities Varun Dhawan and Saif Ali Khan stirred up a surprise after declaring ‘Nepotism stones!’ at the 2017 IIFA Awards in New York. Their commentary were extensively criticised, especially since they seemed to have been made at the expense of Kangana Ranaut, who called out the industry’s nepotistic ways – and especially Johar’s – in an appearance on his talk show Koffee With Karan.
