Rhea Chakraborty comes from a non-film background and has bagged roles without a godfather in Bollywood. However, the actor holds no grudge against star kids, who are often accused of easily getting a break in films. “There is a relatively different struggle involved when you are from a film family. If you are not talented or not working hard enough, you will not be able to make it, whether you are an established actor’s daughter or not,” says Rhea, who has been part of films, such as Mere Dad Ki Maruti (2013), Sonali Cable (2014) and Half Girlfriend (2017).

The actor, who will be next seen in Bank Chor alongside actors Ritesh Deshmukh and Vivek Oberoi, believes that only talent can get an actor on the road to success. “In terms of opportunities, your father can just set up a meeting for you. But those opportunities will only materialise if the star kid is talented or worth the role. The struggle is real for everyone,” she says.

The actor, who was recently seen in the film Dobaara, wants to become a versatile as an artist. “When you watch films, there are so many different types of characters you want to portray. I always want to do something different from what I’ve done so far. I want to do more meaningful roles,” adds Rhea.
