‘I was kicked out of films because someone else was recommended to the producer’ – PeeCee on Nepotism
The untimely death of Sushant Singh Rajput has triggered the debate of nepotism on social media. In fact, the search volume of ‘nepotism’ word has gone to insane level on the internet. While people are still engaged in the war of words and dividing their votes between star kids and outsiders, we can’t deny the fact that nepotism exists in B-Town but there are outsiders, who made their mark in Bollywood, which includes Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar, Priyanka Chopra and others.
A few years back, while speaking to Mid-day PeeCee said that due to nepotism, she was kicked out of a film and she cried over it. “All kinds exist. There is nothing wrong in being born into a family that has a legacy. Outsiders don’t have a foot-in-the-door access. Star kids have the insurmountable pressure of living up to the family name. Every star has their individual journey. In mine, I have faced a lot. I have been kicked out of films because someone else was recommended to the producer. I cried and got over it. Eventually, those who are meant to be success stories become that, despite all hindrances,” said the desi girl.
On the work front, Priyanka Chopra will be next in The White Tiger opposite Rajkummar Rao, which is a Netflix film. It is adapted from Aravind Adiga’s prize-winning novel of the same name. The film will be helmed by Ramin Bahrani. The global icon also has an international web series under her belt titled Citadel, which will be produced by Avengers: Endgame makers Russo Brothers and also feature Richard Madden in a key role. It will be directed by Raj and DK, who are known for The Family Man, Go Goa Gone and others.
