Guwahati: After the death of Sushant Singh Rajput, Actor Saif Ali Khan has weighed in on the nepotism debate that has picked up steam on Bollywood.
According to Kangana Ranaut people like Karan Johar were the "flag-bearer of nepotism" and she has spoken several times against the alleged nepotism that she says is prevalent in Bollywood. After the death of Sushant, Kangana even hinted that people who were putting suicidal views into the actor's mind.
Recently, Bollywood star Saif Ali Khan who was questioned about Sushant Singh Rajput and nepotism in a recent interaction with The New Indian Express, said "He (Sushant) was a talented actor and a good-looking guy. I thought he had a bright future. He was polite to me and appreciated my guest appearance in the film. He wanted to talk about many topics like astronomy and philosophy. I got the feeling he was brighter than I was."
Saif added, "I have no idea what Kangana was saying on Koffee with Karan because I don't think like that. As far as Karan is concerned, he has made himself a large symbol and it seems like he's attracting a lot of flak for it. The truth is always complicated. There's much more to it, but people aren't interested in that. I hope the tide is over and better things shine through. There is inequality in India that needs to be explored. Nepotism, favoritism, and camps are different subjects. Even I have been a victim of nepotism, but nobody speaks of that. I'm happy to see more people from film institutes come to the forefront."
