Actor Isha Koppikar revealed that she has been the victim of nepotism and was once once arbitrarily dropped from a movie at the behest of an actor who is now a superstar. She said that she was once once leaving for the mahurat of a movie when she found out that she had been replaced.
Talking to Pinkvilla, Isha said, “A large number of times, I used to be approximately to receive a role, but then somebody called. The father or mother would call and the starlet would get it. Whether somebody is with someone and the heroine is his muse or girlfriend, then she would get the role. All this has happened to me.”
