Saif Ali Khan says he has been a 'victim of nepotism, but nobody speaks of that'
Saif Ali Khan was mocked and criticised on social media for calling himself a 'victim of nepotism'.
In an interaction with The New Indian Express, Khan spoke about Kangana Ranaut denouncing the practice of favouring star kids first in Bollywood on Koffee with Karan. The actor feigned ignorance about Ranaut's remarks and added that Karan Johar had established himself as a "large symbol" for which he was getting a lot of flak.
"There is inequality in India that needs to be explored. Nepotism, favouritism and camps are different subjects. Even I have been a victim of nepotism but nobody speaks of that. I’m happy to see more people from film institutes come to the forefront," said Khan.
Jawaani Jaaneman actor was mocked and criticised for calling himself a "victim of nepotism" on social media. Twitter users pointed out that he is the son of veteran Bollywood actress Sharmila Tagore and former Indian cricket captain Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi.

Nepotism: “Saif, I gave you DDLJ & Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, but you turned them down. I gave you work despite you starring in a huge number of disasters. I gave you a National Award you didn’t deserve”
