It seems like the IIFA nepotism debate is never ending. Varun Dhawan along with hosts of the evening, Karan Johar & Saif took a dig on Kangana while hailing nepotism. Now Saif Ali Khan has come up with an open letter to shut the mouth of those who snubbed them for their jibe. Want to shut the truth much?
In the letter, published on DNA, Saif starts to finish the topic by exclaiming, “It’s not something that I wrote or something I believe in. It was a joke on ourselves, between Varun, Karan and me. It was not supposed to be a big deal, but I realised at some point, that it might have offended Kangana. I called her and apologised personally. That should be the end of it. Everybody needs to take a chill pill and back off.”
He is well aware of the controversy the comments on an international stage stirred up and this not explanation enough. He goes on, “What I can’t seem to understand are some of the media reactions to this. While most people have been sensible, three reporters from the websites BollywoodLife, The Quint and Elle India, made a point of saying that all I did was use big words like eugenics and genetics. As for the girl from Elle: I’m sorry you found words like eugenics in a conversation about nepotism misplaced.”
Another egoistic line follows, “Perhaps if you got your head out of the hemline of the actress of the month and read a book, your vocabulary might improve.” Oh well, she might have not gone to an extravagant college like a lot of privileged kids of rich parents in the entire world.
The “flagbearer of nepotism,” he said, making a reference to the words Kangana used to describe Karan Johar on an episode of his talk show on which Saif was present, “is the media.” It is ironic that Saif Ali Khan & his wife Kareena Kapoor are from Bollywood families. Now his daughter Sara Ali Khan is being launched in Bollywood by Ekta Kapoor.
While dissecting this open letter means to settle for mediocrity, but not commenting on it is to settle for nepotism in Bollywood. We, as an audience, want to see good content, witness works of good talents and filmmakers.
