In the context of Bollywood, nepotism is often seen as an unfair practice but despite that, fans and media are often fascinated with starkids and wish to see them follow footsteps of their parents. During a recent interview, Kajol was asked whether her daughter Nysa has plans to make a career in movies.
In response, Kajol told Bollywood Bubble, “Nysa is somebody that will make that decision for herself. I am not pushing her away from it and I am not pushing her towards it. She is 18 years old, she is a grown up woman, young lady.”
Kajol then went on to talk about how she herself landed in the film industry accidentally. She recalled, “I never wanted to follow in my mother’s footsteps. It kind of just happened. I was in the right place at the right time. I went for someone else’s photo session but I got my pictures clicked and I got that offer. So it was just fate and a coincidence.”
Coming back to the topic of her children, the actress stated, “As for my children, I will support them in whatever they want to do as long as they are happy and fulfilled. I think my biggest job as a mother is not to guide them into the film industry but to guide them into whatever makes them happy and makes them productive members of society.”
