Nepotism is more evident in Bollywood because we Indians are crazy about the celebrities. Their every move makes for prime time news. But nepotism is in Bollywood as much as it’s in every section of the society.

Doctors kids eventually turn out to be doctors (paid admissions or on merit), and they don’t have to struggle if their parents already have a running clinic, unlike other MBBS students who have to struggle in govt jobs before practicing on their own.

Businessman’s kids hold the reigns merely because they are in the direct line of succession. For example, Ambani’s (gen-next Akash Ambani), Birla’s and so on, and for the middle-class businessman's running public companies, there’s centralization of management.

Then there’s politics. Our longest political party is the glaring example of nepotism. Look around, and you will see it everywhere. Even Ivanka Trump is a product of nepotism. Be it celebrity kids or rich kids; everyone benefits from their heritage. Now, Sachin's son's selection in junior team raised many eyebrows, but the fact is everyone enjoys the perks of being born into a wealthy family. Our housemaid's children too might think of us in the same way. It's all about which side of the table you are on. 

Yes, there are alot of star kids in business these days but you can't say that they aren't talented for example Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Shahid Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor etc are Brilliant actors
If nepotism would have been the master key to success in Bollywood then Tushar Kapoor and Uday Chopra would've been Kings of Bollywood and Shahrukh Khan would have been a side actor and Naseeruddin Shah/Nawazuddin Siddiqui/Manoj Bajpai would've been a teacher at NSD/FTIA

The thing is that people jump to conclusions on the basis of one's Judgements. If a father is a Doctor and his son is soo-to-be a doctor also then the father will try his best to pave the way for his Son and this thing goes with any profession which also includes Acting, what if someday Aamir Khan's son might appear in a film and for that film he may get tons of awards then who would you give the credit, the actor or the actor's father?
Didn't Kangana Ranaut dated a mid-aged married man (Aditya Pancholi) whose son was of her age just to make contacts in the film Industry? I am no one to judge anyone but just think about it.
