Being a nepo baby gave an easy start at the beginning of career: Alia Bhatttext_fields
Mumbai: Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt recently acknowledged that nepotism helped her get an easy start in the industry. However, she added that it can only take an actor so far.
In a recent interview with Vogue India, she said that the decision of the audience is what matters the most in an actor's career. "The only thing I can do is build a body of work that hopefully proves I belong in this industry. And sure, it will get you in the room, but then it’s up to you to work that room. The audience is actually the best judge of talent. You could come from a background that props you up but the audience will ultimately decide whether or not you belong there."
She also said that she always makes it a point to acknowledge the easy start she got at the beginning of her career.
Her statements come after Priyanka Chopra spoke about the insecurity she experienced when her early films flopped. On the podcast 'Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard', she said: "I was terrified when those six movies didn’t do well because I’m not a nepo baby. I didn’t have that kind of support that exists in a big way in Bollywood movies. You don’t have your uncle making a new movie for you just because your last one tanked."
