A third comment read, “Acting tho karva Lenge is exactly why the industry is in shambles and no one except the SRKs and Sunny Deol’s and AKs cannot get block busters.” Another netizen commented, “These nepo kids can’t act for life and Apte knows it”. One user said, “This is the kind of badass woman we like. Not like that Kangu babe.” Another added, “Imagine if the audience is tired of these nepo kids and their mediocrity being given national awards and such, how much more the frustration must be for actors in the field having to be the contemporaries who actually suffer and are not given work based on merit alone.”
