‘Nepotism’ is one of the never-ending debate topics in the Bollywood industry. This matter began when Kangana Ranaut, an absolutely self-made Bollywood star without any big studio patronage spoke on the couch of the most watched English talk show ‘Koffee with Karan’ that Karan Johar is ‘the flag bearer of nepotism and movie mafia’. Well! She is not really wrong.
Just a few days back when Ananya Panday shared a photo of herself, Suhana Khan and Shanaya Kapoor captioning it ‘Charlie’s Angels’ with a hashtag #FamilyPortrait. The picture was clicked by King Khan himself.
IIFA decided to retweet this photo but in hailing the daughters of Chunky Pandey, Shah Rukh Khan and Sanjay Kapoor as the “next generation of divas”, they opened up a debate on partiality and bias in the Bollywood business.
Suhana was the face of Vogue Magazine in August 2018, Ananya has worked in just one movie named Student of the Year 2, and SRK’s daughter Shanaya is yet to set foot in B-town. Which is why netizens cried foul and asked IIFA to put an end to their premature celebrations and allow the star kids to showcase their talents to the world.

Divas? Star ke ghar paida ho gayi, isliye Diva? Bina kuch achieve kiye! If you become a diva just by looking pretty, Chandigarh has thousand times better Divas at every corner.— THE SKIN DOCTOR (@theskindoctor13) July 8, 2019

Divas?! Really? We’ve all seen far better girls in acting schools than Ms. Pandey or @sonamakapoor. Their only merit is to be born in filmstar family & then piggy back onto nepotism flag bearers like @karanjohar while thousands more deserving struggle in Mumbai to make ends meet!— Kaustubh Pethe (@kauspet) July 8, 2019
