Saif Ali Khan declared in an interview that he has been a victim of nepotism, but he only ended up being a target of memes and trolls on social media. Several star kids and directors are at the receiving end after reports emerged that the late actor was also a victim of the lobbying in the showbiz industry. He said in a conversation with a website, "There is equality in the country and it needs to be brought to the fore". To this day, Bollywood buffs insist that Shah Rukh Khan has been snubbed for his performance in Swades at the National Film Awards in 2004, whereas Saif Ali Khan bagged the award for Best Actor for his performance in the romantic comedy Hum Tum. "Nepotism, favoritism, and campuses are separate subjects".

Saif Ali Khan further said that there is much more to this but unfortunately people are not interested.

Twitter users, however, are calling out Saif for calling himself a victim of nepotism, and "reminded" him he was the son of veteran actress Sharmila Tagore and former Indian cricket captain Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi. It was not supposed to be a big deal, but I realised at some point, that it might have offended Kangana (Ranaut). "Definitely, we have more opportunities than people who are not connected to movies".

Saif also talked about his experience of working with Sushant said, "He was a talented actor and a good-looking guy". He was quoted saying, "I thought he had a bright future". He was polite to me and appreciated my guest appearance in the film.

Talking about Kangana's remark on the show, Saif said that he had no idea what Kangana was saying on the show because he did not like that. "He wanted to talk about many topics like astronomy and philosophy", he added. Along with Saif, the film also stars Swastika Mukherjee and will be available for streaming on Disney Plus Hostar from July 24 onwards. That was when she called him Flagbearer of nepotism.
