Sachin Pilgaonkar opens up about daughter Shriya’s name being dragged into nepotism debate, says it upsets him

Sachin Pilgaonkar, who has very successfully created a name for himself in the Indian film industry, recently opened up about his daughter Shriya’s name being dragged into the nepotism debate. Talking to a news portal about the same, he reportedly said that all of them are in this together and very often they pacify each other. However, he admitted that there are times when he loses his cool and gets upset.

When asked if he has given his daughter any advice, Sachin stated that it is exactly the opposite in their case. According to him, Shriya is the one who gives him advice. He added that in today’s age you cannot keep teaching kids how to do and what to do. Children have their own life and methods and one must not interfere with that.

Elaborating further, the actor added that Shriya is their daughter, but if they felt she was not good in this field as an actor, they would have told her point-blank. They are not the kind of parents who would keep quiet and praise her just because she is their daughter.

Sachin also went on to say that he doesn’t like it when people say she is like a son to them. For him, it is like disrespecting her being a girl child.

On the work front, Shriya Pilgaonkar was seen in Shah Rukh Khan starrer, ‘Fan’.
