Ever since Sushant Singh Rajput‘s death, the nepotism debate and discussion surrounding ‘Insider Vs Outsider’ has reignited. Amidst all this, several Bollywood celebs have been drawing flak from social media users. And recently it was Rohit Shetty at the receiving end of netizen’s wrath when an old video of him talking about star kid Sara Ali Khan’s struggle to get a role resurfaced.

Twitterati wasted no time in trolling both Sara and Shetty. Read on to know the details.

The viral video in question is a clip from ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ when Rohit along with Sara and Ranveer Singh had come to promote their film ‘Simmba’in 2018.

In the clip, Rohit talking about Sara’s struggle is heard saying, “Sir please give me work, she actually did that. Saif Ali Khan’s daughter did it. Amrita Singh and Saif Ali Khan’s daughter walked to the office all by herself and sat down in front of a director to beg him for work. I started crying. Told her fine, you do the film.”

Now, this was enough to irk the netizens with many of them accusing both Shetty and Sara of belittling outsiders’ struggle to entire Bollywood. While some labelled the video as ‘Definition of ‘Struggle’ for Star Kids!’, one user wrote, “Anyone looking to make a debut in Bollywood, just go to Rohit Shetty’s office and fold your hands and ask for work..!!”

You can check out netizen’s reaction below:

After making her debut with ‘Kedarnath’, Sara starred in Rohit’s ‘Simmba’. She will be next seen opposite Varun Dhawan in ‘Coolie No 1’ reboot.

However, time and again, Sara has clearly accepted that being a star kid is a privilege and she is acutely aware of it.

Interestingly, it was only recently when Sushant’s close friend Samuel Haokip revealed that Sara and Sushant were dating during the making of ‘Kedarnath’. Samuel even said that perhaps owing to ‘Sonchiriya’s poor performance at the box-office and pressure from ‘Bollywood mafia’, Sara broke up with Sushant. Post, Samuel’s revelation, Sara has become the new target for Sushant’s fans.
