There was a time when hardly anyone knew the meaning of the word ‘nepotism’. But it became a household term after Kangana Ranaut mentioned it on ‘Koffee With Karan’. After the show was aired, its host Karan Johar slammed the actress and she also hit back at the filmmaker. The debate had died down but it got reignited after the death of Sushant Singh Rajput. Several star kids were accused of snatching away opportunities from deserving actors with no connections. Abhishek Bachchan in a recent, rare interview shared his views on this topic.

In an interaction with ETimes, Abhishek Bachchan didn’t mince words as he said, “I'm not accusing anyone but the media has just found this one word which they can throw around. Let's not go by perception, go by the numbers, they never lie. It's as simple as that, perception doesn't matter, facts matter.”

Abhishek further said that audiences get intrigued when an actor’s child is set to make a debut. He further said, “The sad part is that star kids know that they're being cast for that reason and not because they're wonderful actors who've trained themselves.” He also stated that it is easy for a star kid to bag the first film but after that, the actor needs to concentrate on how he or she can better and improve himself/herself.

Abhishek Bachchan then claimed, “How many of these star kids have succeeded in comparison to those who have not come from a film background? The numbers are there for you to see. The discussion starts and ends right there.”

Regarding comparisons with his father, mega star Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek replied that the fact that he’s being compared to someone who he feels is the best actor in the world means that he’s doing something right. He opined, “I might not be there entirely but if you're speaking about me in the same ballpark as Amitabh Bachchan, I might be doing something right. I looked upon it more as an appreciation.”

Meanwhile, Abhishek Bachchan will complete 23 years in the industry. His first film, Refugee (2000), was released in cinemas on June 30, 2000. It also served as the debut vehicle of Kareena Kapoor Khan.
