After the Sushant Singh Rajput suicide case, the debate about nepotism and decriminalization in Bollywood has intensified. Now Soni Razdan, mother of Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt has given her reaction in this regard. Soni asked that those people who are making fun of nepotism, they will support their children if their own children want to work in the industry.
Recently, film director Hansal Mehta tweeted and wrote that this debate of nepotism should be more widespread. Merit is most commonly seen. My son was allowed to step inside the door because of me. And why not. But it has been an important part of the best work because it is talented, is discipline, hardworking and has qualities like me. Not because he is my son.
This nepotism debate must be broadened. Merit counts most. My son got a step in the door because of me. And why not. But he's been an integral part of my best work because he is talented, disciplined, hardworking and shares similar values as me. Not just because he's my son.

The expectation that people have because of whose son or daughter you are is much more. Also thise who r ranting about nepotism today and who have made it on their own will also have kids one day. And what if they want to join the industry? Will they stop them from doing so ?

Hansal further wrote, “He will not make films because I will produce them. But he will make them because he deserves them. He will make his career only if he can survive. Ultimately he is going to make his own career and not Her father. My shadow may be her biggest benefit, and her biggest loss. ”
Replying to these tweets of Hansal Mehta, Soni Razdan wrote, “Whose son or daughter you are, it increases the expectations of the people. Also, those who are making fun of nepotism are supporting their own children. If they want to come into the industry, what will happen if they want to join the industry themselves? Will they stop them from doing so? “
