She spoke to BusinessofCinema as she said, “Firstly nepotism exists in the world and not only in the industry. You know koi bhi apne logo ke baare mein pehle sochta hai…isme muje koi galat nai lagta…but having said that, I have never experienced anything such…I don’t have anyone from the film Industry but on the basis of merit and on the basis of my belief, I have come so far. But her (Kangana Ranaut) experience has been different than mine. So it does not mean that because if I didn’t have this experience, it doesn’t exist. My experience has been different and theirs different. Who is to say? I have not experienced anything such.”
Srijit Mukherjee’s ‘Begum Jaan’ also stars Naseeruddin Shah and Chunkey Panday in pivotal parts and will be releasing on April 14, 2017.
