A video of filmmaker Rohit Shetty and actress Sara Ali Khan on the Kapil Sharma Show is going viral and it doesn’t make either of them look good.

Twitter users have been sharing the old video where Shetty talks about how Khan bagged her role in the 2018 film, Simmba. In the video, Shetty says he was emotional upon seeing Sara beg him for a role.


“Sir please mujhe kaam dedo, isne aise kiya literally (pleading with folded hands) Saif Ali Khan ki beti ne. Amrita Singh aur Saif Ali Khan ki daughter akele chal ke office mein aana and ek director ke saamne baith ke ye kehna ki sir mereko kaam dedo please, mujhe rona aagaya. Maine bola tu picture kar le (Sir please give me work, she actually did that. Saif Ali Khan’s daughter did it. Amrita Singh and Saif Ali Khan’s daughter walked to the office all by herself and sat down in front of a director to beg him for work. I started crying. Told her fine, you do the film),” Rohit says in the video.

The debate on nepotism in Bollywood was rekindled after Sushant Singh Rajput’s death in June. Twitter users believe that these videos are proof of how easy star kids have it.
