Kareena Kapoor Khan reacts to nepotism debate: Says ‘Everyone gets what they deserve’
Kareena Kapoor Khan has expressed her opinion on the ongoing nepotism debate and stated that being a star kid might get someone a break in the industry, but it won’t take them anywhere. The actress asserted that eventually everyone gets what they deserve. “People outside the industry assume that if you are a star kid, it’s really easy to get a break, but let me tell you it is not true. Today’s industry is very different from what it was during the 1990s and 2000s. Today there are filmmakers who are like ‘everyone has to give a screen test’. If you are good you get the part. Aamir Khan screen-tested me for Laal Singh Chaddha as he wasn’t 100 per cent sure if I will be able to play the part and I did give the screen test,” she added.
