Nepotism have now grown into the big trees.
It is indeed a bitter truth of Bollywood that the seeds of nepotism have now grown into the big trees.Actors with pure talent are sidelined as first priorities are given to the favourites and relatives. The worst part is, if an outsider tries to raise his /her voice, then they are suppressed or the actor/actress are been treated with all negative comments and ill threats.
