NEW DELHI: Filmmaker Soundarya Rajinikanth, who is directing her brother-in-law Dhanush in the upcoming film "VIP 2 - Lalkar", says talent matters in the world of showbiz regardless of the background the artistes come from.

Asked about the ongoing nepotism debate in the cine world, Soundarya, who is the daughter of superstar Rajinikanth, told IANS: "At the end of the day, talent is what is going to last and is going to speak loud... No matter which family you are coming from or no matter what background you come from, if you are not talented, people are not going to accept you.

Soundarya feels that star children face extra pressure. 

"With star children there is extra pressure because there is so much of expectation from us that if we fall than coming back up is all the more difficult," she said.

It's the talent that matters at the end of the day, added the director. 

"So, I think at the end of the day it's just talent and if you have it in you, you are going to last irrespective of where you come from," she said. 

"VIP-2" is a sequel to the 2014 Tamil film "Velaiilla Pattadhari". The film also has Amala Paul, Vivek, Saranya Ponvannan and Samuthirakani returning from the first film.
