Saif Ali Khan Writes an Open Letter on Nepotism

"The real flag bearer of nepotism, I'd say is the media."

Saif Ali Khan and Karan Johar, Varun Dhawan faced major backlash for their stupid skit at IIFA 2017. It was obvious that the whole act was a sly dig at Kangana Ranaut and, as expected, fans took to Twitter to troll them and post hateful comments

Soon after, Varun, Karan and Saif apologised for their comments. Saif wrote an open letter through DNA giving his full and final opinion on the 'N' word:

Here are a few excerpts from his letter:

"It was not supposed to be a big deal, but I realised at some point, that it might have offended Kangana (Ranaut). I called her and apologised personally. That should be the end of it. Everybody needs to take a chill pill and back off."

"In today's world, apologies are made through Twitter or though some other social media platform. That, is basically apologising to your fans and the world in general, instead of apologising to the person concerned, because you don't want to lose support."

"I'm sure it's not the first or the last time I'm going to say something stupid in an attempt to be funny. And I apologised to Kangana, so I don't owe anybody else an explanation. The issue is over."

"The real flagbearer of nepotism, I'd say is the media. Look at how they treat Taimur, Shahid's daughter Misha or even Shah Rukh's son AbRam. They photograph them and hype them up to be the next big thing and the child has no choice. From a young age they have to deal with being celebrities, which they don't really deserve, before they can even speak or talk, leave alone understand what is happening."

"If you say star kids have an advantage, of course, they do. It's an advantage created by the press because people are interested in them. There is a curiosity to see Taimur, Sara or Ibrahim. It's supply and demand. People want it, media serves it. So we're all part of the same vicious circle in that sense."
