Industry is still facing the debate on nepotism. With netizens getting #boycottnepotism trending on social networking sites, actor Kunal Kemmu also tweeted, which hinted about having equal chances on the work front. The actor just sometime back tweeted about something, which made us think about the ongoing nepotism debate once again.
In his tweet, he touched upon the topic such as love, respect and equal opportunities to prove one’s capabilities said by Kunal Kemmu and it needs to be earned if one doesn’t get it it doesn’t belittle you and added by Vidyut Jammwal.
His tweet came in as the Disney+ Hotstar event with Alia, Akshay, Ajay, Varun and Abhishek went live and the five promoted their films. Vidyut and Kunal whose films too are releasing on the OTT platform were not in the list. His tweet read,
“Izzat aur pyaar maanga nahi kamaya jaata hai. Koi na de toh usse hum chhote nahi hote. Bas maidaan khelne ke liye barabar de do chhalaang hum bhi oonchi laga sakte hai”
List consist 7 films also included Vidyut’s film KhudaHaafiz and Kunal Kemmu’s LootCase. But both were not invited to be a part of this virtual press conference. After the tweet of the Vidyut where he shared the disappointment of not being a part of virtual conference.
Vidyut had tweeted, “A BIG announcement for sure!! 7 films scheduled for release but only 5 are deemed worthy of representation. 2 films, receive no invitation or intimation. It’s a long road ahead. THE CYCLE CONTINUES”.
While hosting the event Varun Dhawan shared words of appreciation for Kunal Kemmu and Vidyut Jammwal. While representing the poster of the Lootcase, Varun said “Kunal and I workout in the same gym. So, I know a lot about LootCase and have heard what the story is about from him. He also showed me some behind the scenes and that looks like an amazing film. There is an amazing star cast as well. I have always been a fan of Kunal Kemmu since his work in Raja Hindustani. And I keep telling him as well that he is one actor who always inspires me.”
And further added at the time of releasing the poster KhudaHaafiz “And coming to KhudaHaafiz, There is no one like Vidyut Jammwal in our country who can do what he does. He is a tremendous talent- his art, his skill, his dedication. I want to say that I am a big fan. Lot of people are Jamwaalians. Great work by getting KhudaHaafiz as well on this platform.”
There is quite an ignorance from Disney+ Hoster they could have invite Kunal Kemmu for ‘Lootcase’, Vidyut for ‘KhudaHaffiz’ and Ahana for ‘Mini’. Sanjana Sanghi and Mukesh Chhabra could have invited to talk about the movie.
Instead of that they got completely ignored in the virtual press conference only Varun Dhawan gave words of appreciation to Vidyut and Kunal Kemmu even he talked about Sushant Singh Rajput works in the time of hosting the event.
So, celebrities are the one who makes the difference between people and star kids or the Business world of the industry. Maybe the business world is making it more clear that who is more important and sellable.
