Alaya F opens up on Nepotism! Says, "I don’t count myself as a fully nepo baby, I have not grown up among industry parties, that’s not been my life"

Alaya F, who had her Bollywood debut in 2020's Jawaani Jaaneman, starring Saif Ali Khan, was last seen in the films Freddy and Nearly Pyaar with DJ Mohabbat. Alaya is Kabir Bedi's granddaughter and Pooja Bedi's daughter. She recently discussed her opinions on nepotism and explained why she doesn't believe she is a "totally nepo baby" in an interview.

Alaya F explained that she is not entirely a "nepotism baby" and that there are many degrees of nepotism. She said that Pooja Bedi, her mother, stopped acting prior to the birth of Alaya and that she did not grow up among "business gatherings." “I don’t count myself as a fully nepo baby, because you need to understand there are different levels in that. My mother was done with the industry, she had quit acting before I was born. I have not grown up among industry parties, that’s not been my life. So sometimes it does get frustrating because there are levels of nepotism,” said Alaya.

However, she did acknowledge her privilege, and added, “At the end of the day, I do come from privilege and that’s half of someone else’s journey. It does get me into rooms but it doesn’t really guarantee me movies. But reaching there is the hardest part.” Alaya shared that while she does get access, it is solely merit that takes a person ahead.
