We are back to the Nepotism news once again. But before you decide to flip to some other news, let us tell you that it is one of the most interesting statements given by any movie star until now. Emraan Hashmi has spoken on the issue now and it is a brutally honest confession. While most of them are busy defending the term, Emraan Hashmi blatantly said that Nepotism does exist and he is the product of the same! Yes the Baadshaho actor did not mince a word before speaking it out and that is something no one actually did till now!

Talking to a leading daily, Emraan Hashmi said, ” Yes, nepotism exists in our industry, and I got a break because of it. If my uncle [Mahesh Bhatt], who is a producer and director, hadn’t been there, I wouldn’t have been an actor. My case was different. There was no dying need for me to become an actor or be a part of this industry. I had just finished college and I stepped into films.”

Emraan Hashmi also talks about his kid joining the films. Here too, he honestly spilled, “I wouldn’t push my seven-year-old son, Ayaan, into Bollywood. But tomorrow, if he wants to become an actor, it won’t be difficult for him, as his father is an actor and producer. The industry will try to box my son into the image that his father had and snatch away his individuality. They won’t let him start afresh, like an outsider.”

Did you expect such genuine reply from anyone in the showbiz industry at all? Emraan Hashmi did not try once, to be diplomatic and we have honestly liked this gesture of him. He will be seen in Milan Luthria’s ‘Baadshaho’ next. What are your thoughts on this shocking statement?
