Alia Bhatt's mother Soni Razdan on nepotism controversy: Those who have made it on their own will also have kids one day

Post the untimely demise of Sushant Singh Rajput, we saw netizens sparking the debate of nepotism and criticising star kids like Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi Sinha, Sonam Kapoor, Karan Johar and others for making the late actor left out in the industry. Now Alia Bhatt’s mother Soni Razdan has reacted to ‘Nepotism’ controversy and said that those, who are ranting about this issue today will support their children if they want to join the industry.

This nepotism debate must be broadened. Merit counts most. My son got a step in the door because of me. And why not. But he’s been an integral part of my best work because he is talented, disciplined, hardworking and shares similar values as me. Not just because he’s my son.

He will make films not because I will produce them. I might not. But because he deserves to make them. He will have a career only if he survives. It is ultimately him and not his father who will build his career. My shadow is both his biggest benefit and greatest bane.

The expectation that people have because of whose son or daughter you are is much more. Also thise who r ranting about nepotism today and who have made it on their own will also have kids one day. And what if they want to join the industry? Will they stop them from doing so ?

It started with filmmaker Hansal Mehta’s tweet, which reads, “This nepotism debate must be broadened. Merit counts most. My son got a step in the door because of me. And why not. But he’s been an integral part of my best work because he is talented, disciplined, hardworking and shares similar values as me. Not just because he’s my son.” He further tweeted, “He will make films not because I will produce them. I might not. But because he deserves to make them. He will have a career only if he survives. It is ultimately him and not his father who will build his career. My shadow is both his biggest benefit and greatest bane.”

Later Soni Razdan reacted to Hansal Mehta’s tweet and wrote, “The expectation that people have because of whose son or daughter you are is much more. Also those who r ranting about nepotism today and who have made it on their own will also have kids one day. And what if they want to join the industry? Will they stop them from doing so ?”

The Shahid director replied to Soni’s tweet and wrote, “The debate has been narrowed down to target certain people. Not for the sake of reform or larger good. Before nepotism ends we must work towards reducing hypocrisy and ‘vested interest publicity’. Bullying must end. Bullies must be called out. Not talent.”
