ACTOR JACKIE SHROFF SAYS HE DOES NOT KNOW WHAT IS NEPOTISM BUT STAR KIDS HAVE MORE PRESSURE THAN OTHERS :

Call him Jaggu Dada, Bindas bhidu or Jaikishan, Jackie Shroff‘s popularity hasn’t faded with time. The actor, who was part of several hits like Hero and Ram Lakhan, was recently in the capital for an event. In a quick chat with DT, Jackie spoke about his personal and professional experiences, people’s fixation with their phones, and the most trending word in the film industry these days – nepotism.  Jackie says that contrary to popular belief, star kids find it more difficult to make their mark in the industry than other newcomers. He says, “I didn’t know the meaning of nepotism before this controversy in the industry. I don’t know even the spelling of nepotism. Industry mein naya word aaya hai. I came from outside and made my name. It’s easy to say that he/she is a star kid and has had it easy in Bollywood, but being a star kid is the real pressure. You have to undergo a lot of pressure as you are being constantly compared to your parents. It is very difficult to match the stature of Bachchan sahab… Abhishek is constantly judged on his legacy, which is unfair.” The Times of  India : 5th. Aug,17
