I was kicked out of films because someone else was recommended: Priyanka Chopra on nepotism

Priyanka Chopra, who is not only a household name in Bollywood but Hollywood as well, will soon be making her Hollywood debut in Baywatch. The actress recently revealed that there were days when she too faced rejection in Bollywood. In an interview with a leading daily, PeeCee, who was in India for a short period of time before flying back to New York, was asked to comment on nepotism, to which she replied, "All kinds exist. There is nothing wrong in being born into a family that has a legacy. Outsiders don't have a foot-in-the-door access. Star kids have an insurmountable pressure of living up to the family name. Every star has their individual journey. In mine, I have faced a lot. I have been kicked out of films because someone else was recommended to the producer. I cried and got over it. Eventually, those who are meant to be success stories become that, despite all hindrances." For the unversed, in an episode of 'Koffee with Karan,' Kangana Ranaut had boldly talked about nepotism in the film industry, leaving the whole B-Town in shock. On the work front, Priyanka is gearing up for her big Hollywood debut, Baywatch. She will be seen playing the antagonist, Victoria Leeds, in the film that also stars Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron.
