Alia-Hrithik’s Invitation to the Oscars Renews the Nepotism Debate

Bollywood stars Alia Bhatt and Hrithik Roshan have been invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and are a part of the voting body. This has obviously divided Indian Twitter into groups, some for and some against this news. Here is the long and short of what is going on here.

Hansal Mehta voiced his opinion via a tweet

It should go without saying that filmmaker Hansal Mehta’s stance was noticed by everyone. Go through the comments of the tweet if you want to know what the cinephiles and Twitterati are thinking about the whole issue.

The Indian Twitter stands divided

It’s not just Mehta’s tweet that the Twitterati reacted to. Check out the following tweets full of different points of view. While some people want to disregard Alia’s and Hrithik’s star kid status because they are both pretty talented, some still feel that there is an obvious advantage to being an “insider”.

Here are others who have also been invited to AMPAS

819 artists and executives have been invited to join the voting body. The Indians who received this invitation include celebrity designer Neeta Lulla, Nandini Shrikent (casting director), visual effects supervisors Vishal Anand and Sandeep Kamal, and documentary filmmakers Shirley Abraham, Nishtha Jain, and Amit Madheshiya, Sabrina Dhawan (screenwriter), and V Senthil Kumar (filmmaker). Artists from 68 countries have been invited for this, including the lead cast of the celebrated South Korean film Parasite.
