Actor Sapan Krishna Says: "Nepotism Debate Is Overrated, Its High Time We Let Talent Speak For Itself"


After delivering the blockbuster song Bedard opposite Hina Khan last year, actor Sapan Krishna is all geared up for his new music video Tera Hi Naam which brings a fresh perspective to the old world notion of Love at First Sight. In an exclusive conversation with #SocialPost, the actor talks about his upcoming projects and his thoughts on the controversial topic ‘Nepotism in Bollywood’.



Sapan considers himself as a ‘fortunate outsider’ to the film industry who has been able to pave a way up for himself at his own pace in the last five years. After few years of struggle in Mumbai and some initial projects, he bagged the lead role in bilingual movie Deadly Affair in 2020 which released in theatres just before COVID hit the country. The movie is currently streaming on Amazon Prime for international audience. People further took note of him in a primary character in the hard hitting film Mooso based on John Steinbeck’s novel ‘Of Men and Mice’ which was premiered at the prestigious Kolkata International Film Festival along with numerous other national and international screenings and recognitions. He says that ‘For star kids, the pressure must be immense to stand up to their illustrious parents. But for someone like me, nobody kept a track of my work in the initial years and I had the freedom to try and fail before I delivered. Not being judged is a big cushion for any new actor’. 

Sapan was also seen opposite Hina Khan in Stebin Ben’s music video Bedard which went on to become one of the most viewed songs with more than 50Millions views till date. He further says ‘I feel it’s high time we stop the debate on Nepotism and targeted abuse on actors with privilege. It’s a no brainer that children would want to follow the footsteps of parents in most professions and parents would push for opportunities. Bollywood is no different and we should be at peace with it. Nature has its own way of ensuring fairness. Where there is no talent, it soon shows irrespective of their family name or backing from bigwigs’.

Right now, Sapan is eagerly waiting for the audience’s response to ‘Tera Hi Naam’ by Big Shots Music where actress Preyal Shah plays the lead opposite him in the music video directed by Deepak Chaudhary. Sapan is also looking forward to the thriller Mathadi, a web show by RV Series that talks about the life of daily wage labours in a metropolitan city. The shoot of his satirical film Bhaakcination is also complete which shows the difficulties of driving COVID vaccination drives in rural India. He is thrilled at both the projects gearing up for release on leading OTTs this summer.

To sum up, Sapan tells us that good work comes your way if you know your true worth and if you are able to identify the right opportunities. One’s success won’t be defined by pulling down people with privileges or godfathers. Peace and Love!
