Alaya F, the granddaughter of famous actor Kabir Bedi and the daughter of Pooja Bedi, has admitted that she does not entirely believe herself to be a "nepo baby." Alaya claimed she didn't grow up attending business gatherings. It "can become infuriating occasionally," she acknowledged, when people talk about nepotism without realizing that "there are levels of nepotism." Her mother had given up acting before she was born.

 “I don’t count myself as a fully nepo baby, because you need to understand there are different levels in that. My mother was done with the industry, she had quit acting before I was born. I have not grown up among industry parties, that’s not been my life. So sometimes it does get frustrating because there are levels of nepotism. At the end of the day, I do come from privilege and that’s half of someone else’s journey. It does get me into rooms but it doesn’t really guarantee me movies. But reaching there is the hardest part. While I won’t deny the access, it’s the merit that takes one ahead. You may agree or disagree, I am a nepo baby but it’s unfair to base everything I do to put it on where I come from. I have tried so hard to do much more and continuously do good work," said Alaya F .

She continued, “If I keep bothering myself with realizing my privileges or disregarding my privelege or all these 800 conversations we keep having, I feel like it’s an endless loop we’ll get stuck in. Nothing has changed about the way I was raised or where I was raised or whom I was raised by – that’s not going to change, we can have many conversations about it. What can change is the work I do, the amount of work I choose to put in or not put in, all these things are variable. So I try and make the most of these things, which are things I can actually do something about and can do the most of. The day I don’t do that is the day that I would feel very let down by myself. Then I would feel like I took things lightly. I don’t see myself doing. I’m very grateful for this opportunity and these wonderful circumstances that I’m in. And I promise to make the most of them and I hope it become clearer and clearer with every film I do.”

 Alaya F said, “I suppose those names will always be there, and I’m proud to have those names. It’s not that I kept my name Alaya F because I want to run away from privilege. My last name is ‘Furniturewala’. It makes for a very long name… I’ve always gone by ‘F’ it’s just been the way. There wasn’t a real thought to it to separate me from my…it wasn’t that.” She added, “I’ll never say that I’ve not had the privilege or I’ve tried not to use it because it gets used without me even trying. But I’ve actively tried to make my own choices.
