Ayesha Shroff commented on the post saying, “It’s not a sin to have a star father my dear! Hard work and talent is the same no matter what caste, creed or lineage!!!”.
Some or the other way the ‘N’ word makes its way into the headlines and so do the celebs who talk about it. Yes, we’re talking about the nepotism debates which refuse to die down any time soon.
Recently, it’s Ekta Kapoor and Tiger Shroff’s mother Ayesha who’ve got into a heated argument.
It all started when Ekta posted the teaser for her upcoming production, Laila Majnu, on Instagram, and wrote, “Promo in two hours max! Pls see a glimpse of this piece of cinema about raw timeless love untamed by the commerce of films helmed by the best @imtiazaliofficial and lived by two yet unknown talents who have no film legacy or star fathers or godfathers.”
The movie stars Avinash Tiwari and Tripti Dimri, and has been directed by Imtiaz’s brother Sajid Ali.
Soon after, Ayesha Shroff commented on the post saying, “It’s not a sin to have a star father my dear! Hard work and talent is the same no matter what caste, creed or lineage!!!”.
Ekta Kapoor, who is also has a star father, Jeetendra, replied, “not at all mam! I have one ;) but u have to admit for a producer to sell market n turn around a film with newcomers is far tougher with no lineage attached ! This is no slight to any star kid least of all tiger who is FANTASTIC! But a request to give other kids a chance too.”
Well, now it’ll be interesting to watch if Tiger or his father, Jackie Shroff have anything to add to this debate.
