Saif Ali Khan recently shared his opinion on the culture of nepotism in the Hindi film industry. It once again became the subject of discussion following Sushant Singh Rajput's demise.

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.

Besides Jawaani Jaaneman, Khan was also seen in the historical drama Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior alongside Ajay Devgn and Kajol. He will be seen next with Rajput and newcomer Sanjana Sanghi in Mukesh Chhabra's directorial debut Dil Bechara. The film will be out on Disney+Hotstar on 24 July.
