Actress Anushka Sharma today said that she never faced nepotism in her decade-long career in Bollywood despite being an outsider.
Actress Kangana Ranaut had called filmmaker Karan Johar the “flag bearer of nepotism” on his talk show, leading to a war of words between the director and the actress.
Anushka, who made her acting debut in 2008 with Aditya Chopra’s “Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi”, said she got a chance to make it big in the industry without a godfather.
“The production house which launched me, I can’t talk like that about them because they gave an outsider like me a chance,” Anushka said in an interview here. The actress said Yash Raj Films could have easily taken an industry kid on board but they have given a chance to many outsiders.
“They did have an option to take any industry kid at that time but Aditya Chopra put faith in me. I can talk about my experience and I’ve never faced nepotism in any way. Whether this happens or not, everybody has their own experiences. May be it happens but I can never say this about Aditya.
