Prachi Desai moved from television to the big screen and has been seen in a few films since. She’s recently given her comments about Bollywood being all about family.

“Bollywood is a large family business. It’s primarily a family industry and that’s what it thrives on. Even today, there’s a constant barrage of star kids whose pictures are flashed all over the internet even before they decide when and how are they going to debut,” said Desai, according to Hindustan Times.

The actress also spoke further about the opportunities presented to star-kids, “There are a lot of talented actors out there who may probably never get those opportunities like these star kids do get. So yes, I think it’s very evident for everybody to see that it is always about family connection in Bollywood”.

On facing this problem herself, Desai adds, “The few films that I have been in contention for, I know certain girls’ fathers have called up those particular directors or producers that they are eyeing that film. So it’s nothing new and happens all the time”.

Desai was last seen in ‘Rock On 2’ which released in November.
