Nepotism has been the burning topic in Bollywood ever since Kangana Ranaut called Karan Johar a flag bearer of it on his own show.
Now dynasty has also been one such issue in the field of politics.
While star kids in Bollywood repeatedly get quizzed about nepotism and Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi is among those who having to deal with questions about dynasty.
Gandhi was reported to have said, “Most parties in India have that problem…Mr Akhilesh Yadav is a dynast. Mr Stalin (son of M Karunanidhi of DMK) is a dynast… even Abhishek Bachchan is a dynast. So, that’s how India runs. So, don’t get after me because that’s how India is run. By the way, last, I recall, Ambanis are running the business. That’s also going on in Infosys. So, that’s what happens in India.”
Following his comments, Rishi Kapoor went on against Gandhi on Twitter by highlighting the contribution of the Kapoor in India cinema and how their four generations survived in the industry, purely on merit, for 90 years.
He also asked Gandhi not to give ‘bullsh*t’ on dynasty and that he should earn respect and of people through hard work and not ‘zabardasti’ (force) or ‘gundagardi’ (hooliganism).
