While the teaser of the upcoming live-action musical set in the 1960s has impressed many, it’s the cast of the movie that has come under the scanner.
With well known star kids: Suhana Khan, Khushi Kapoor and Agastya Nanda, roped in to essay lead roles of Veronica, Betty and Archie, respectively, the Zoya Akhtar directorial’s teaser has sparked the nepotism debate on social media once again and these tweets are proof.

Given the fact that Netflix is the most expensive OTT platform in India, it needs to have top tier Indian content to compel people to pay a premium for it.
Funding pet projects of Bollywood families is not it, boss. International corp feeding the nepotism circle. Pathetic. https://t.co/bC4elEagWZ

Can one imagine how talentless and useless one has to be to become a movie actor or actress just because “mere papa / mummy bhi the”. And how many talented people get left out because of these celeb kids.
