Kriti may have been ‘fortunate’ to be accepted by the industry and audience but she feels star kids have an edge over others.

Mumbai: For someone who does not have filmy parents to fall back on or a Godfather who could launch her career in Bollywood, actress Kriti Sanon is doing remarkably well. Although she accepts that the industry as well as audience have ‘accepted her’, the actress asserts that nepotism is an integral part of the showbiz industry.

In a recent interview with Mid-day, the actress spoke about how Bollywood is inclined towards aspiring actors with star parents. "Star kids always get an upper hand at the start of their career. People in the industry often know them from the time they were toddlers, so they show support to them when their film is about to release. Besides, actors with celeb parents have better accessibility [to opportunities]. The industry serves as a support system for them, unlike in the case of other actors," said the actress who recently wrapped up Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s ‘Bareilly ki barfi’.

 

But, Kriti opines, the industry has opened its doors for outsiders like her. "The industry today is far more accepting of outsiders. I chose this career knowing this reality [that star kids are favoured]. I get to take credit for my achievements for which I am pretty proud of myself," added Kriti. The actress will next be seen in ‘Raabta’ with rumoured boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput.

When asked about the reason behind her opting out of ‘Lucknow Central’, the slender actress said, “We were trying to sort out the dates for the longest time, but eventually, it didn't work out. Besides, at times, if things aren't working, maybe it's for a reason. Beyond a point, it is better to let go of it."
