The topic of nepotism has taken the Bollywood industry by storm. There has not been a single day since the untimely death of Sushant Singh Rajput where star kids have received some relief from the Twitteratis. So Ranbir and Alia have not spoken anything outrageous and no comments have been made by their family members. What is the reason they are trending on Twitter? Let’s find out.
What made Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt trend on Twitter?
So filmmaker R Balki, in his interview with Hindustan Times said,
“The question is do they (star kids) have an unfair or bigger advantage? Yes, there are pros and cons. But I’d ask one simple question: Find me a better actor than Alia (Bhatt) or Ranbir (Kapoor), and we’ll argue. It’s unfair on these few people who’re probably some of the finest actors”.
This created anger among netizens and they said there are tons of other talented actors as well in the industry. Acclaimed editor Apurva Asrani tweeted,
“Manoj Bajpayee, Rajkummar Rao, Vicky Kaushal, Ayushmann, Kangana Ranaut, Priyanka Chopra, Taapsee Pannu, Vidya Balan, Richa Chaddha. Many others too if we look beyond A list film families, and take a few chances. I love Ranbir & Alia, but please, they aren’t the only good actors.”
“Pankaj Tripathi, Gajraj Rao, Amit Sadh, Jaideep Ahlawat, Rasika Dugal, Swara Bhaskar, Shweta Tripathi, Sanjay Mishra, Neena Gupta, Divya Dutta, Manav Kaul, Nawazuddin, Jeetu. My god, I could go on & on about the wonderful talents we have. Stop fussing over the same 3-4 names now!”
Many came on support of Alia and Ranbir and some trolled them. So this was the story of Alia and Ranbir, trending on Twitter where they haven’t even spoken a word or created a controversy and still made it to the trends.
Death of Junaid Shah
There was another reason why Ranbir made headlines on Twitter. Ranbir’s doppelganger from Kashmir, also a model named Junaid Shah died because of cardiac arrest in his hometown. Junaid became an instant famous a couple of years back. Ranbir’s late father had posted about him saying he finally found his sons’ look-alike which made Junaid famous.
