Emraan Hashmi reacts to Kangana Ranaut’s nepotism row

Emraan Hashmi has worked with Kangana Ranaut in Gangster. The movie was a big success. While talking to Indian Express, the actor says that he likes Kangana a lot, personally, as an artist and a person. He feels that Kangana might have had some bad experiences about working in the industry. Sharing his experience of working with Kangana, Emraan says that he had given a hit at that time and yet took a negative role in Gangster. Kangana was at the centre stage in that movie. Emraan says that it was almost a female-centric film. Which is why, he doesn’t understand where the perception of nepotism in the industry debate came from. He wonders how the conversations about people being drug addicts and the industry working only through nepotism began. He feels it is dumbfounding and not true.

Talking about the nepotism debate, Kangana Ranaut has been actively talking against nepotism in the industry. The actress has called out several star kids in her Instagram stories, interviews and more. Kangana’s take on nepotism has been severe and harsh. A lot of people have been on Kangana’s side. There has been a lull phase in the movie business after COVID hit the globe and more after the tragic demise of Sushant Singh Rajput, says Emraan. However, he doesn’t quite agree with nepotism. In another interview, Emraan shared that he did not get a grand launch. He says he started his career as a supporting actor and then worked his way up. He agrees that his entry point was easier. Emraan began working as an assistant director. He saw how difficult it is for an outsider to get to the entry point of a film office. Emraan says to forget getting cast in a movie, even talking to a director or an assistant director is a long shot for an outsider. Emraan Hashmi starrer web series Showtime is going to release soon. The series showcases nepotism and more filmy background secrets. Emraan has now reacted to the nepotism row started by Kangana Ranaut.
