Nepotism has been a hot topic of discussion in India eversince Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut made a controversial statement on Koffee with Karan. Recently, after the sad demise of Dil Bechara fame actor Sushant Singh Rajput, nepotism debate has gained a lot of momentum.


Many star kids were accused for stealing opportunities from outsiders, who came to Bollywood with big dreams. Recently, Saathiya? star Vivek Oberoi, spoke candidly about nepotism in Bollywood.
According to Vivek, not every star kid is given privileges; not all of them are born with a silver spoon in their mouth. Vivek said he never used his fathers (Suresh Oberoi) name to get roles in movies; he paved his own path and worked hard to make his own name.


Oberoi said he started his journey by working as a voice over artist, washed dance floors, worked as a spot boy and even served tea. He went on to say that after he turned 15, he stopped asking for money from his father.
Vivek was first seen in Ram Gopal Vermas Company in 2002 and last in Rustum in 2019.

Oberoi said that his father was a friend, guide and the best critic he could ever find.  “He raised me to be a fine man. I never tried to use his name for my personal gains, I don’t believe in the nepotism debate because I don’t relate myself with it? he added.

We saw Vivek judge reality shows in the past such as India’s Best Dramebaaz and Indian Idol. He said I love talent hunt shows, great talent can be found from these platforms.
I advise people to stay away from the nepotism debate; I know why many are angry with it? Oberoi said in a recent interview.
