Woman From Influential Family Says She “Struggled In Taxi” & Bought A Mercedes, Desis React

While it is great to celebrate your wins in life, it is also important to acknowledge if you got an easy head-start from your privilege and not be tone-deaf about it. For instance, the conversation gained momentum after actors Sara Ali Khan and Ananya Panday talked about their “struggles” in the industry.
