Actress Kareena Kapoor Khan, the grandchild of legendary actor-filmmaker Raj Kapoor, says nepotism does not exist in the Indian film industry.The actress at a conclave was asked if nepotism exists in the film industry.


Kareena replied: “There are so many superstars from yesteryears and not all of their children are a superstar. If nepotism exists, they would have been a big star by now.”
“The fact that Ranveer Singh has become the new superstar who does not come from a film family proves the fact that they become superstar out of their sheer talent and hard work. Nepotism does not exist,” she said.


“I think it is about the talent that takes you where you go. When you are on-screen, anybody can make or break you; anyone can make a judgment on you irrespective of you are a daughter or grandchildren of someone,” she said.
Kareena also says her son, who has become a sensation on the internet not only because of his adorable look but his name ‘Taimur’, was initially to be named ‘Faiz’.


When was asked if too much of media scrutiny spoils their private life,especially after how the social media trolled her son’s name. Kareena said: “Of course, there was trolling but at the same time there was an immense support from the people we were getting, not that trolls matter to us that much but it was our choice.”


“The day before I was going to the hospital for delivery, I had a talk with Saif and he was suggesting to keep his name Faiz, he said, ‘Bebo, that is a more poetic, more romantic name’. I said ‘no, Taimur means iron and if I give birth to a son, my son is going to be a fighter, I will produce an iron man’. And yes, I proudly did so.”
