Urmila Matondkar talks on Nepotism:
In a chat with Barkha Dutt, Urmila said, “This word called ‘nepotism’, if I start talking about it, I will have to talk for quite a few hours. The amount of it that I have faced, in spite of being from Mumbai, was quite alarming, to say the least. There was some 16-17 new girls who were introduced that year and out of them, some eight or nine of them were somebody or the other’s daughters. I will tell you a few of them – Raveena Tandon, Karisma Kapoor, Pooja Bhatt, Kajol, lots of them.”
She also shared that after her movie Rangeela became a success in 1995, she was still not credited for it. She felt everything else of the movie was discussed but not her. However, she chose to be optimistic of the good points of the film.
Urmila also admitted that she was discriminated more by the media than film fraternity. She was judged by the film magazines by a different yardstick than star kids. She also shared that in 1991 when she made her debut in a leading role, at the same time many new female faces were launched. As per the actress, most of them were star kids. Despite she made a good name with her first project, she still had to struggle.
