    Whenever the infamous topic of nepotism in Bollywood comes up, inevitably the names of Karan Johar and Alia Bhatt automatically come up at the forefront. Now, an old video of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been going viral with a popular entertainment news channel wherein she can be seen talking about how Alia has got a huge privilege due to her equation with Karan. Even though the former Miss World framed her statement subtly, many netizens assumed it to be an indirect dig at Alia being a product of nepotism.

    Talking about the same, Aishwarya can be seen telling in the interview how it is fantastic how Alia has gotten such strong support from Karan. The Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam actress hinted that there will never be any dearth of good opportunities for Alia Bhatt due to her being in such an established position in the industry. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan furthermore adds that Alia is also doing some good work with all the projects that are literally ‘falling in her lap.’ Take a look at the video.

    However, not many netizens especially the fans of the Student Of The Year actress were pleased with Aishwarya’s statements. Many users were quick to remind her of how her own husband and actor Abhishek Bachchan is himself the son of superstar Amitabh Bachchan and received many opportunities in the industry but could not taste huge success like his father, unlike Alia. One of the netizens stated, “Even if someone gets the best opportunities not everyone can act n make a mark for themselves. Like her husband who got the best kind of opportunities but still he’s not a hit star even after 20 yrs. Alia is the most talented actress n her work speaks volumes.”

    Another user added, “Her husband got opportunities on a platter regularly for two decades!! but could never become a star like Alia Bhatt (critically acclaimed and box office star) Stop being jealous of her.” However, some fans of the Devdas actress also praised the actress for voicing her opinions honestly. Meanwhile, on the work front, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will be seen in Ponniyin Selvan 2.
