It isn’t a myth that nepotism exists in Bollywood. All those having a connection in Bollywood have a slightly better luck than those who enter Bollywood with sheer talent. However, only by having a connection in Bollywood doesn’t make one a star. Yes, they definitely get an opportunity easily but without hard work and talent making a place is Bollywood is highly impossible. Star kids like Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, and Sonam Kapoor, had a bonus of being born in a ‘filmy family’ but it is their acting skills which helped them to gain fame. There are also actors who had the benefit to prove themselves, their star parents/siblings even tried their best to promote them, but these celebs failed to leave a mark because of the lack of talent.
