Bollywood Actress, Kangana Ranaut has broken her silence on the nepotism debate. In her open letter, Kangana Ranaut shares her perspective on nepotism after reading Saif Ali Khan’s letter on the issue. She says “Are you implying that artistic skills, hard-work, experience, concentration spans, enthusiasm, eagerness, discipline and love, can be inherited through family genes? If your point was true, I would be a farmer back home.”
The debate and exchange of thoughts on nepotism is “exasperating, but is healthy”, Kangana responded, also in an open letter. Quoting a part of her ‘Rangoon’ co-star’s letter, where he “emphasised” on nepotism being an investment on tried and tested genes, Kangana said, “I have spent a significant part of my life studying genetics. But, I fail to understand how you can compare genetically hybrid racehorses to artistes!”
“Saif, in your letter you mentioned that, ‘I apologised to Kangana, and I don’t owe anyone any explanation, and this issue is over.’ But this is not my issue alone. Nepotism is a practice where people tend to act upon temperamental human emotions, rather than intellectual tendencies,” Kangana wrote.
“I have acquired these values from the ones who have found great success and discovered a higher truth, much before me. These values are in the public domain, and no one has a copyright on them,”. Kangana said the aim of the conversation started by her was to encourage outsiders; her agenda was not to blame people from the industry.
“I think the privileged are the least to be blamed in this debate, since they are part of the system, which is set around chain reactions. Change can only be caused by those who want it. It is the prerogative of the dreamer who learns to take his or her due, and not ask for it.” In response to Johar and his comments on the issue, she said talent does exist beyond the “superficiality of branded clothes, polished accents, and a sanitised upbringing”.
The actress added that many examples of people succeeding on the basis of “genuine hard-work, diligence and eagerness to learn” do exist all over world in every field.
In her opinion, “nepotism is an extremely pessimistic attitude for a Third World country, where many people don’t have access to food, shelter, clothing, and education.”
“The world is not an ideal place, and it might never be. That is why we have the industry of arts. In a way, we are the flag-bearers of hope” says Kangana.
