Many celebrities are once again countering to the ongoing debate on nepotism. The topic of nepotism is getting extreme with each passing day. Lately, South and Bollywood actress Shruti Haasan also joined the debate as she admitted being in the industry because of her father Kamal Haasan. In a recent interview, Shruti revealed that it is merely because of her surname she has got entry into cinema.
“The doors of the film industry opened for me simply because of my surname. It would be criminal to deny that. But over the years, I learned that things are different in Tamil and Telugu cinema when compared to Bollywood,” Shruti Haasan said in an interview with a leading regional media house.
The actress further added that how things change after debut film and then there is no inspiration of having a filmy background. She added, “I made my debut alongside a star like Suriya in Tamil, an actor who also got his break because of his father, Sivakumar sir. And yet, his path to stardom was carved by his work. After that initial launch, every actor has to prove their talent and work hard to get their next offer, especially in Telugu and Tamil cinema. Your background stops being such an influence after your debut. I am not sure whether this is the case in Bollywood. I think it’s different there.”
Talking about Shruti Haasan’s upcoming films, Shruti recently confirmed being a part of Pawan Kalyan’s Vakeel Saab. The film is Telugu remake of Amitabh Bachchan starrer Pink.
