The nepotism debate in India regarding star kids has been a hot topic of discussion in recent years.
Nepotism refers to the practice of favoring relatives or close ones in various fields, including the entertainment industry.
Many people argue that star kids have an advantage in the industry due to their family connections.
Which can make it harder for talented individuals from non-film backgrounds to break into the industry.
Critics of nepotism believe that it limits opportunities for fresh talent and hinders diversity in the entertainment world.
Recently the debate gained momentum after the release of Netflix series ‘The Archies’
The Archies is actually a fictional band from the Archie Comics universe.
The Indian series is a modern-day reimagining of the Archie Comics, focusing on the lives of Archie Andrews, Betty Cooper, Veronica Lodge, and Jughead Jones.
The show delves into their relationships, mysteries, and the dark secrets that lurk in the town.

They believe that talent should be the ultimate factor in determining success, regardless of one’s background.
The debate around nepotism is complex and multifaceted.
With various opinions and perspectives.
It’s important to have an open dialogue and consider different viewpoints to understand the issue better.
