Praises have been showering on Aditya Chopra. He has made a rare appearance in the new docuseries, The Romantics on Netflix.
He has been very frank on his opinion on nepotism and how his successful company Yash Raj Films could not help in making his brother Uday Chopra a star.
He says, “My brother is an actor and he’s not a very successful actor. Now, here is the son of the biggest filmmakers, he’s the brother of a very big filmmaker. Imagine a company like YRF, that has probably launched the most newcomers, and we could not make him a star. Why could we not do it for our own? Because the bottom line is, only an audience will decide, ‘I like this person, I want to see this person.’ No one else can decide that.”
Uday Chopra’s first role was in 2000, in the movie Mohabbatein. He has done about 10 films, the last one being Dhoom 3.
He ends the debate on nepotism with his witty comment that they tried to make Uday a successful actor but couldn’t do it. Only sheer talent lasts and prevails in the industry.
Hence, this goes to prove that the audience is the king and will have the final verdict.
