Nepotism in Bollywood has been an interesting issue of debate ever since Kangana Ranaut has drawn our focus on the issue on Karan Johar's talk show. It had left Bollywood separated, with some recognizing that nepotism exists, however, others keeping up that it is an ability which survives and then there are people who are just mum on it. Surveen Chawla uncovered the issue in a meeting with Hindustan Times that she had once been unceremoniously dropped from a film in light of the fact that the producers chose to decide on a star kid with associations in the business. Terming it as "one of the worst feelings", the Hate Story 2 actress said that the occurrence being referred to occurred six years prior when she had quite recently abandoned her promising profession in TV. At that moment she had turned into an easily recognized name with TV soaps like Kahin To Hoga and Kasautii Zindagi Kay. Surveen in her statement to the leading daily quoted;
I was not scared even though I had left TV at the peak of my career. But in the middle of this transition, when I was stepping up, I was thrown back down. For what reason? The question is not of my talent, but about somebody who had better contacts; that's it. It took me sometime to come out of it, but then other things happened, and it instilled confidence back in me.Surveen further didn't hesitated to mention that,
People sitting up there, who have the background of the industry, don't want to open their eyes! There are only, say, five people they work with. I can't get my head around this sometimes. You need to widen your sight and horizons as there's so much talent out there.
