Sometime back, Kangana Ranaut sparked off a major debate on nepotism in the Bollywood industry. Now, Allu Arjun has responded to this debate with an absurd explanation.
It is a fact that whether it is Bollywood or Tollywood or Kollywood, only filmy families are ruling the industries. In Tollywood, actors from Megastar Chiranjeevi’s family, Nandamuri’s family, Ghattamaneni’s and Akkineni-Ramanaidu’s family have grabbed the business This is an undeniable fact.
Allu Arjun or Ram Charan or NTR or Mahesh Babu or Rana or Naga Chaitanya cannot defend nepotism for any reason. But Allu Arjun has given a strange and awkward explanation defending nepotism. “Media reports have asked me about nepotism recently. My answer is this: like generations of priests served the gods, our family has been entertaining the paying public. For us, audiences are like gods. If priests can be blamed with nepotism, then I take this blame,” he said.
He was speaking at the success meet of Ala Vaikunthapurammloo. Of late, Allu Arjun’s speeches are attracting the trolls.
