The star kids vs outsiders debate in Bollywood has been a long running one. There have been many aspiring actors who’ve come out in the open and said that they’ve lost major projects because a preference was given to someone else who had contacts. The nepotism debate got even more heated last year after actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death with many alleging that he was sidelined by the bigwigs in Bollywood. Now, actor Sonakshi Sinha has shared her raw take on the nepotism debate.
The actress was asked if she’s lost out on any movies. “Of course. Who hasn’t? Like this whole star kid debate is useless because it is not like no star kid hasn’t lost out on a project because of somebody else. But nobody goes around crying about it. It’s okay, sab ke saath hota hai (it happens to everyone). Deal with it, dude. That’s life. There is no point talking about spilt milk,” she told an entertainment portal.
“Chalo, forget me. My father also, who was not a star kid, has lost out on many projects. It happens to every actor, it’s part and parcel of the job. It’s not something which is so unheard of or so new, it happens to everyone and it has been happening. Like I said, it’s part and parcel of the job, you move on with your life, work hard and keep at it,” she added.
Sonakshi Sinha made her debut in Bollywood with Dabangg in 2010 where she starred opposite Salman Khan. Her last release was Bhuj: The Pride of India where she was seen opposite Ajay Devgn, Sanjay Dutt, Nora Fatehi and Sharad Kelkar.
