After Kangana, Anushka Sharma Speaks About Nepotism in Bollywood

"We all have different journeys and different experiences..."

Ever since Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut labelled Karan Johar as a "movie mafia" and the "flag bearer of nepotism" on his celebrity chat show Koffee With Karan, nepotism in the film industry has become a hot-button issue in the B-town fraternity.

Recently, Philauri actor Anushka Sharma addressed the much-discussed topic during a press conference to promote her upcoming movie.

"We all have different journeys and different experiences and I am sure the actors sitting next to me on the stage will agree on this part", Anushka told a leading national daily.

"Aditya Chopra gave me my launchpad. Yes, I am an outsider and he launched me in a big film. Similarly, he has launched Ranveer Singh and Parineeti Chopra and we three are completely from a non-filmy background."

"Going by my experience, I have a lot of respect for Aditya Chopra because he gave a platform to the actors and I have personally never experienced it [nepotism]," the Sultan star added.
