Bollywood | The debate on nepotism, which started after an episode of Koffee With Karan, continues till date. In this episode, Kangana Ranaut called Karan Johar the one who raised the flag of nepotism. Since then, one gets to hear something or the other on this every day. Now filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri has said during an interview that before the year 2000, there was no nepotism in the film industry. Vivek said that Sridevi, Amitabh Bachchan and Jitendra are all outsiders. However, after the arrival of their children, Bollywood became like a bonded mafia.When children came, they became mafiaVivek Agnihotri does not consider himself a part of Bollywood. He often taunts Karan Johar and so on in tweets. In an interview to Brute India, Vivek Agnihotri said, I think Bollywood used to be completely different before 2000. It was a different place. Most of the people were outside. Of these stars who became big stars by 2000, then their children came and they became like close-knit mafia. And they have some problem with outsiders. I don't know why, and that's why they are traveling.Outsiders' career ruinedVivek says that after 2000, the families of Bollywood closed the doors for others. Vivek said that then these filmmakers started destroying the careers of talented actors outsiders. Vivek says, the son of a doctor becomes a doctor, it is very natural. There is no harm in it but filmmakers in Bollywood say that stars are promoting unqualified people because of the nepostic nature of the industry.Trouble promoting ineligibleVivek said that Dharmendra was an outsider, Jitendra, Rajesh Khanna, Vinod Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan, Shatrughan Sinha, Govinda were all outsiders. Sridevi and Madhuri Dixit were also outsiders. These people became successful. Their children came, then the directors' children came, then the producers' children came. I don't have any problem with it. I have a problem when you promote the unworthy.
