Vikrant Massey reacts to nepotism in industry

In an interview, Vikrant Massey said that the industry is a merit-based institution. Sharing a light on how nepotism is in every sphere, the actor added, “Even a shopkeeper in Chandni Chowk would not go out to search for someone to sit in the shop; he would ask his son only. So, it is in every field. I am not a trained actor. If you are someone’s son or daughter and you get ample opportunities, if you are not good at work, you will be immediately shown the door in this industry.”

Calling the industry challenging, Vikrat shared that there is a misconception that things are easy here adding it is a democratic community. He further added that the industry is a robust and progressive community but it is not a family.
