The actress Taapsee Pannu who will be next seen in Naam Shabana, admitted that there is nepotism that persists in the industry but also added that it doesn’t necessarily mean that it ends someone else’s career.
Taapsee Pannu was asked to comment on Kangana’s statements on nepotism, and she said “I am a proud outsider, nobody forced me to come into the industry. I was aware of the nepotism that exists in the industry and even then, I decided to be a part of it. I don’t like playing the victim card.”
Taapsee further said that there are filmmakers who happily work with outsiders like Shoojit Sircar and Neeraj Pandey.
Taapsee also said “You might lose out on some projects because of nepotism, but something else will come your way. You can’t keep blaming nepotism for not getting work. I wasn’t even passionate about acting and probably, that worked in my favor because I didn’t see films as the be all and end all of my life. You will get your fair share of work despite having no connections in the industry and I am the living example of that. It is a game and nepotism is part of it. Play your outsider card if you have to.”
