A clip of actor Mrunal Thakur talking about nepotism has gone viral on social media
Actor Mrunal Thakur, who was last seen in Nani-starrer Hi Nanna , has one of the actors who has accumulated a massive fan following in the south in the recent times. The actor opened up about nepotism debate in the industry and said that media is responsible for the attention star kids receive.
Mrunal also recounted an incidence that took place during an award function, when the media left her interview to cover a star kid.
The nepotism debate has been a recurring topic in the film industry, where many have alleged that star kids have been entering the industry like it is a piece of cake, and bagging big projects, while those without any background support must completely rely on their efforts. Recently, a video of Mrunal addressing the topic on nepotism have been going viral on social media.
The actor recollected a moment from an awards function when the media left her in between an interview to attend a star kid who had arrived. She said, “It’s not their fault, they are star kids, it is we, as common people, who are so intrigued to know what’s going on in their life. I will give you one simple example, an award night was going on, and an interview session was happening, and I was in the middle of an interview and the media ran behind the star kid. Now tell me, I was awarded as Best Actor Critics, the same as Janhvi being awarded the same night. I wasn’t even handed a speech. I am not jealous but it is not their fault either.”
Mrunal, who shot to fame with the success of Sita Ramam, was last seen in Hi Nanna. The actor also has Family Star, co-starring Vijay Deverakonda . The film is scheduled to release on April 5. Helmed by Parasuram Petla, the film will be out for Ugadi. Touted to be a romantic comedy, the film will also feature Divyansha Kaushik and Ajay Ghosh.
