Amidst intense hullabaloo surrounding her Hollywood debut, when Priyanka Chopra was interviewed by Mid-Day recently, she brought up the nepotism debate once again. Ever since her Fashion co-star Kangana Ranaut placed the blame on Karan Johar for being partial towards star kids, several actors have voiced their opinions on the matter. But where does Priyanka stand on nepotism in Bollywood? She’s was an outsider herself after all.

There is nothing wrong in being born into a family that has a legacy. Outsiders don’t have a foot-in-the-door access. Star kids have the insurmountable pressure of living up to the family name. Every star has their individual journey. In mine, I have faced a lot. I have been kicked out of films because someone else was recommended to the producer. I cried and got over it. Eventually, those who are meant to be success stories become that, despite all hindrances.
Priyanka Chopra, Actor

Priyanka makes a fair point. Both insiders and outsiders have their own set of challenges. Eventually, audiences decide who stays. Not only did Priyanka win Bollywood over, she’s playing the ‘outsider’ game all over again in Hollywood.
