In the midst of nepotism debate, filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has apologised to Tiger Shroff’s mother for indulging Tiger into the debate. The filmmaker posted a picture of Tiger Shroff while making a point about nepotism.
Anurag, on his official Twitter handle, had shared a news item with pictures of Tiger and Saif Ali Khan-Kareena Kapoor’s son Taimur, explaining how nepotism works in the industry and is fuelled by the media itself.
Sharing a news story by one of the media houses, Anurag wrote, “This is nepotism by media ..? Why?? Because this is what you the audience wants to see .. So isn’t it nepotism by you the audience too??(sic).”

It’s been a while now since Anurag has been raising his voice over the raging nepotism debate in the industry and how it tilts the insider-outsider equation in favour of those coming from film families.
However, Kangana Ranaut who has been vocal about the issue of nepotism for quite some time seems unhappy with Anurag’s apology. Within no time, her team reacted to the apology and wrote on Twitter, “Will @anuragkashyap72 apologise to Kangana’s or Sushant’s parents ? No, but he will apologise to Tiger’s parents. Double standards! (sic).”

Ongoing since Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise, there’s no denying that it has triggered many celebs which ultimately led to the film industry divided into two sections.
