Actress Alizeh Agnihotri, who made her debut in Bollywood with the 2023 heist thriller film ‘Farrey’, is a member of the Khan household. The 23-year-old actress is the daughter of actor-director-producer Atul Agnihotri and Salman Khan’s sister Alvira Khan Agnihotri. Recently in an interview with Bollywood Bubble, Alizeh talked about her desire to establish a career for herself in the film industry and not just become well-known as Salman Khan‘s niece.
During the interview, the actress spoke at length about the benefits of hailing from a filmy family. Alizeh said, “It helps me knowing that people have seen the film. (Earlier) I was because of my family. And us being producers of the film, I didn’t test for this film, I already was part of the film. Soumendra (Padhi) sir came in and before he decided to do the film, he put me through some workshops and all. That’s what happened but I can’t say that I have auditioned. I can’t say all that because it’s not what happened.”
The actress even discussed having privilege because she’s a star kid. She said, “I have a lot more (privilege). I’m never going to be in denial about this. I have a lot more access because my family is from the industry. I experienced it firsthand because of Sahil (Mehta), Prasanna (Bisht) and Zeyn (Shaw) when (I saw) how hard it is for people who don’t come from the industry, so I never want to say ‘Oh, I had any negative (encounter), any pressure. Because it is my family’s film, that is why we made a film like Farrey because people know that we have the access and the resources let’s do something good and interesting. Let’s give people what they want instead of just rubbing it in their face and doing what people normally do for their debuts.”
Regarding how Salman Khan’s fame helped her in Farrey’s promotion, Alizeh said, “It’s been the biggest blessing to have him on board. We are really grateful he liked the film. You know, family is family but a the end of the day to actually go ahead and promote the film, to give so much support while getting nothing back… So really grateful for his support.”
