Talent, not wealth, gets Janhvi work Janhvi Kapoor, daughter of late actress Sridevi and producer Boney Kapoor, said she gets to work in films because she has talent.

Subhash Ghai slams Bollywood actors

Renowned filmmaker Subhash Ghai believes today's generation of Bollywood actors are more interested in doing ads and asking for high fees than working wholeheartedly in a film.

The man who helmed blockbusters like Ram Lakhan, Pardes and Taal said: "The actors of the '90s still understand the importance of the story - be it SRK, Salman or Aamir. They want the job to be done well and they know the money will follow.

"But today's generation wants the money to come first, they care about only their personal branding and fees."
