Priya Bapat on Nepotism: With a godfather, it’s easy to get a place in the industry
Making a place for yourself in showbiz is not an easy feat, says Marathi cinema actress Priya Bapat. Priya, who is gearing up for the release of her upcoming web series ‘City of Dreams’, says that without a godfather, making an entry in Bollywood is really a difficult task.
The topic of nepotism has been spoken about a lot recently. While some actors don’t mind it, others feel is quite unfair. Talking about it, Munna Bhai actress Priya feels that nepotism is bound to happen and that there’s nothing bad about it. “It’s obvious, if we are big stars, then we will help out our family members too. It’s not only about our industry, it happens everywhere. But yeah, this is true. If you have a godfather, it becomes quite easy to get in but then it’s all about how you carry that privilege.”
‘City of Dreams’ is Priya’s debutant web series. It is a political drama and has four different stories interlinked to each other. The series has been directed by Nagesh Kuknoor and produced by Applause Entertainment. It will be live soon on Hot Star.
