Post the tragic demise of Sushant Singh Rajput, we saw the topic of ‘nepotism’ got widely discussed on social media. Post that many celebs opined their thoughts on this topic and the latest one, who shared her experience on that is Evelyn Sharma, who has worked in films like Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Saaho, Main Tera Hero. The gorgeous lady recalled her tough days and told HT, “All of it made me stronger actually. There have been times when the roles offered to me had no scope to perform. Then I’d get replaced overnight because someone’s friend or girlfriend wanted to do the film.” She further went on to add, “It was quite shocking and horrible experience for me. Initially I’d think those ‘why don’t you come over for drinks’ offers were for good only to find out later that it wasn’t. What’s nepotism? The power and money game that happens in Bollywood is a different thing altogether. Thankfully I managed to stay away and found my small space.” Also Read – Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani actress Evelyn Sharma’s response to her marriage with Tushaan Bhindi will leave you in splits [Exclusive]

The actress also revealed that people still believe she can’t deliver dialogue in proper Hindi and said, “After 10 years in Bollywood and having done 15 films, people still feel I won’t be able to deliver my dialogues in Hindi. I mean that’s disappointing. I know Elli (Avram), Elnaaz (Nourouzi) also go through similar grind.” She further added, “I faced all these headstrong and continued to work on my own terms. With the money I earned, I started investing and now in Mumbai I’ve a house of my own, a marketing company and also a charity foundation. I realised you need to make yourself financially strong to survive here.” Also Read – Prabhas takes Hindi lessons to dub for Saaho

But I really don’t know when these projects will go on floors. At the same time, I’m worried about the situation in India.
