There are several star kids who have been attacked either by outsiders or even by some industry members in the name of nepotism. It has been labelled how star kids get films easily while the ‘outsiders’ have to struggle. It has also been said that even if star kids’ films flop, they still manage to get another mega project with a leading production house, but the same does not happen in case of an ‘outsider’ and they have to struggle. Ananya Panday is one of the star kids who has been attacked several times in the name of being an ‘insider’. Her father, actor Chunky Panday, in an interview to a leading daily, shared his thoughts on nepotism and also revealed how he never forced his daughter to get into films.
