Post the demise of the Sushant Singh Rajput, the debate of nepotism has popped up again. The latest celebrity to face the outrage is actor Saif Ali Khan who said he too is a victim of nepotism.
Reacting to the allegations by Kangana Ranaut recently and her allegations in the chat show Koffee With Karan, Saif Ali Khan said,
“I have no idea what Kangana was saying on Koffee with Karan because I don’t think like that. As far as Karan is concerned, he has made himself a large symbol and it seems like he’s attracting a lot of flak for it. The truth is always complicated. There’s much more to it but people aren’t interested in that. I hope the tide is over and better things shine through.”
Speaking to the New Indian Express, Saif opened up and went onto say that he has been a victim of nepotism too. He said,
“There is inequality in India that needs to be explored. Nepotism, favoritism, and camps are different subjects. Even I have been a victim of nepotism but nobody speaks of that. I’m happy to see more people from film institutes come to the forefront.”
HE also spoke about his experience of working with Sushant Singh Rajput in the upcoming film Dil Bechara that is dropping on the 24th of July. He said,
“He was a talented actor and a good-looking guy. I thought he had a bright future. He was polite to me and appreciated my guest appearance in the film. He wanted to talk about many topics like astronomy and philosophy. I got the feeling he was brighter than I was.”
However, the people on Twitter were not going to go easy on Khan. The Twitter roasted the actor. Here are some of the tweets.

Saif Ali khan complaining about being a victim of nepotism is equivalent to Rahul Gandhi complaining about not getting opportunity in indian political scene. Same same!

It's true that Saif Ali Khan has been a victim of nepotism, not easy to accept national award for a silly film like Hum-Tum just because your mother is jury member that year.
