Entertainment industries around the world are famous for giving jobs to those who have some connections. Nepotism is in the field of showbiz whether its Lollywood or Bollywood.

Another perception is that the girls who have no connection and they are from a middle-class background get work only after sleeping with others.

Top actress Mahira Khan who has been in this field from many years and worked in several dramas and films is a self-made star.
