Varun Dhawan is a good actor so if his dad makes a film, he will take him: Kushal Tandon on Bollywood's nepotism row


The film industry is currently facing the wrath of several groups on the internet for nepotism, favouritism and the insider vs outsider debate. While several celebrities are not keen on commenting on the on-going debate, Kushal Tandon has come forward to address the issue. The actor, who has always been open to comment on various issues, said that there is 'a lot of work in the industry and people should do it and be happy'. 

“I don’t mind it (nepotism), nepotism is everywhere. You have to prove yourself, there are so many people jo apne bete ke liye movie banate hai but agar aap kaam accha karoge tabhi aage badhoge. Varun Dhawan is a good actor so if his dad (David Dhawan) makes a film, he will take him and not others. But I think our industry loves outsiders also, sabko chance mil raha hai,” said Kushal.

The actor said, "For the record there is too much work in this industry, there is no need to cry, just shut up and do your work. Do your thing and be happy. This is a full circus that has been happening and I am not interested in adding more chaos to it, that is all I will say."

Having said that, Kushal does feel that being an outsider comes with difficulties. “We have to do mehnat. I did TV and now doing OTT. I don’t really have anything that I will only do films, I will be doing a film for sure but when the right one happens. If I wanted to do movie I would have done already. It is just that I am not getting the perfect one. When I do a Bollywood movie I would like to be called a debutante , I want to keep my fist closed for a good break,” he said.

The actor plans to work in the OTT space until he gets a Bollywood film of his choice. “I will be at it and someday somebody will see my talent and offer me a good role in a film. I know , when people will think of me well, I will get that shit, otherwise I am very happy in my space , very content and wherever I am,” he concluded.

On the work front, Kushal was last seen in ALT Balaji's and ZEE5's Bebaakee
