And the latest one to voice his opinion is Bollywood actor Sunil Shetty, who believes that every parent wants their kids to settle down.

Every father irrespective of professions wants to make sure that his son or daughter settles well. If someone is a doctor they would encourage their kids towards medical field or kids wants to follow their parent's profession. So, every profession is same, so why are we singling it out in movies. All this will just give TRP's, will get you eyeballs, will get you likes and makes news." "I have my own company that is called 'F The Couch' and if it's giving opportunity to new comers then, it's because of their talent, they are not related to me, they are not my kids. But I am giving them a break, so, I think to each his own," he added. For the unversed, whole of B-town was in a shock when Kangana Ranaut, boldly talked about nepotism in the industry on chat show 'Koffee With Karan'. The 'Queen' actress, who is known for her brazen honesty, took a dig at Karan Johar on his show, calling him the "flag-bearer of nepotism" in Bollywood.
