The seeds of Nepotism have gradually grown into big trees and first priority is given to the children of the stars and not to the people who are actually very talented. It is not being said that “the star kids are not talented or are not capable,but the chances are initially given to them and then to the rest of the people.” Said Bollywood Actress Huma Qureshi. Tapsee pannu also posted about Nepotism by saying “finally learnt the meaning of the word Nepotism and will now learn how to deal with it.” Which clearly identifies that she has been a victim of Nepotism.
