The tragic death of Sushant Singh Rajput has sparked debate in the film industry and the public. Bollywood has a reputation of launching star kids and treating outsiders as just outsiders you know. However, the audience got a reality check when Sushant a gullible, talented actor hanged himself because of the partiality and allegations. The fire has just started and it’s in no mood to lighten. Many Bollywood biggies faced the wrath of the masses after the death of an innocent actor. Karan Johar, Sonam Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Salman Khan are among the few who have been facing backlash from the public. Bollywood Nepotism is now out in the open and we are definitely not backing out.
Bollywood patronage is also known as favoritism, is getting your most loved friend or family member movies. It is unethical in nature, however, this is an age-old tradition. We have been witnessing it for long but now the death of an actor from a small village in Bihar has triggered our emotions. Carrying a legacy by the most influential families is what you can call nepotism. A certain amount of discrimination exits in all spheres of work especially politics. Nevertheless, this new phenomenon is a topic of concern in the Hindi cinema and its authenticity.
We don’t know if this debate will ever come to an end or the fresh budding artist will be given a chance. But we do know is that the entertainment industry has seen its first outrage. The public until now was blindly following these stars and was treating them as Gods. However, things are about to change for the good. Non-nepotistic stars like Kangana Ranaut, Ayushman Khurana, Akshay Kumar are prime examples that Bollywood deserves better. It is a long way home but at least the audience is becoming aware of the dark side of Bollywood. Hindi cinema is just glitz and glamour but a whole lot of politics runs within. We hope that other struggling actors should also get equal opportunity. Sushant was a victim of discrimination and depression, we don’t want another Sushant in the industry.
