Nepotism In Bollywood

A few years ago, Sushant Singh Rajput admitted at an awards show. In this show, he was asked about Nepotism in Bollywood. He said that – “Nepotism is there, it’s everywhere, not just in Bollywood. You can’t do anything about it. Nepotism can co-exist and nothing would happen but at the same time, if you deliberately don’t allow the right talent to come up, then there is a problem. Then the whole structure of the industry would collapse one day. But till then, it’s fine.”

He also said that “Nepotism can co-exist with all the talented people also and you will get wonderful films because then they will be competing with each other and that would raise the performance.”

On Sunday, June 14, Sushant Singh Rajput died by suicide at his home in Bandra, Mumbai. He was said to be in depression for some months. He was an Indian actor.

Sushant Singh Rajput started his career with television serials – “Pavitra Rishta.” It was the famous show on Zee TV at that time. Then he struggled his way to the top in Bollywood. He received a nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut and also received a Filmfare Award for Best Actor in “M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story” film.

Most of the fans and people from within the film industry and outside of it have strongly criticized nepotism. And have been even blaming it for Sushant’s suicide.
