BOLLYWOOD: Varun Dhawan, who landed in a controversy for announcing ‘Nepotism rocks!’ at the height of the debate around it in the industry, says it exists in showbiz and it’s not good.
“Nepotism exists. It’s a part of our industry. It’s not good. More people from outside the industry should be given a chance. And why not? My father came in that way,” Varun has said in an interview for the GQ India, September 2018 issue.
The son of celebrated filmmaker David Dhawan, known for giving Bollywood some memorable ‘masala’ entertainers, Varun believes it is easy for people to make assumptions, but rarely do they know about the struggle his father went through.
“My dad was born in Agartala. When he lived in Bombay, he shared his house with four people. When I was born, my family lived in a 1BHK at Carter Road.
