Sushant Singh Rajput passed away but left an unending debate there in Bollywood. His untimely death has once again instigated the heated debate on nepotism that’s flourishing in the Bollywood industry. Pooja Bhatt could be now seen active on Twitter and opened up to address the issue in a series of tweets.
Mahesh Bhatt’s proud actress-director & daughter has tweeted about how The Bhatt production house or Vishesh Films has given so many newcomers a platform for their debut in Bollywood. The production house was in fact once blamed for not hiring the established actors for its several projects.
Pooja Bhatt tweeted
“Have been asked to comment on the hot topic Nepotism that people are raging about. As someone who hails from a ‘family’ that has launched more new talent-actors, musicians & technicians, than the entire film industry combined I can only laugh. Facts don’t find takers. Fiction does.”
In her next tweet, she states, ”There was a time when the Bhatt’s were accused of having something against established actors & made to feel inferior for only working with/launching newcomers & not chasing stars. And now the same people play the nepotism card? Google & tweet guys & won’t even say think & speak.”
Pooja also Discussed about Kangana Ranaut
Pooja also discussed in her tweet, about how Kangana’s debut movie “Gangster” was also produced, and made under the banner of Vishesh Films. “As for Kangana Ranaut- She is a great talent, if not she wouldn’t have been launched by Vishesh films in “Gangster”. Yes, Anurag Basu discovered her, but Vishesh Films backed his vision & invested in the film. No small feat. Pooja added, “Here’s wishing her the very best in all her endeavors.”
Pooja went on to say that they are going to launch a talented music composer, and teacher from Chandigarh in their upcoming film, Sadak 2. “Even #Sadak2 will give birth to a brand new talent in the form of a music teacher who came to our office with no prior appointment. He had only a harmonium, and many dreams with him. He just played a brilliant song called ‘Ishq Kamaal’ that was taken into the film on first hearing from my father,” She tweeted.
In her last tweet, she said lastly,”
“Toh yeh ‘Nepotism’ Shabd Se Kisi Aur Ko Zalil Karne ki Koshish Karo Doston. The people who have found their way into the movies through the springboard we provided over the decades know what we stand for. And if they have forgotten, It’s their tragedy. Not ours. Have a great day!”
