Do you know Nepotism and Bollywood are very close?

Since the death of the veteran actor, Sushant Singh Rajput at his flat on the 14th of July 2020, there has been a lot of disturbance amongst the fans, and most commonly baffled is Bollywood. Losing a star to the nepotism trap has flared an outrage amongst the fans over twitter over the “movie mafia” and “music mafia” in the Bollywood. 

The groups of celebrities launching their family members into Bollywood, causing the deserving actors’ chances to become negligible in the coming period. The sudden outrage caused was due to sudden claims out of the investigation of the suicide of the veteran actor being pressurized and suppressed by the elites of the Bollywood, who tend to suppress small creators or deserving artists to enter the Bollywood. An “outsider” word is used to discriminate against the artists who are not the family member of a celebrity. These elites in Bollywood tend to suppress the artists.

For example, Dabangg 3 and the Kannada movie dubbed in Hindi, Avane Sriman Narayana (ASN) both were to be released on the same time period, where Dabangg 3 was a disastrous movie in terms of story and screenplay and the plot replicated from the previous sequels, in the same order. Dabangg 3 earned a huge lump-sum out of the crap story, whereas ASN, which was a masterpiece in itself, a real thriller movie, based in an imaginary city of Amravathi, with an innovative storyline, involving many twists and turns and a new level of movie-viewing experience, due to the Hollywood level of direction in the movie, did not get even 2 screens in each of the metro cities. Kannada cinema has been emerging these days! The quality of movies and direction has been drastically improved and is highly impressive! But the over-rated Bollywood wants it all, making remakes and tending to make it more disastrous in most of the cases.

Where we have different directors like Anurag Kashyap, who gave chances to a bunch of talented actors which actually led to the creation of blockbuster films like Gangs of Wasseypur I and II a masterpiece in itself, due to the “outsiders” who displayed their talent and proved themselves to be highly capable to compete against the nepotism products. Nawazuddin Siddique, Huma Qureshi, and many more such talented gems emerged on their talent and not on their family background, approach or money.

Since the topic has its heat currently, even the suppressed actors, directors, lyricists, musicians, and many more have come out openly expressing their grief against many production houses or the elite gangs individually. Facing threats from copyright claims to the threats of finishing careers, people might have understood who is the real striker here! This is one of the darkest secrets of Bollywood life especially for the “outsiders”, which is highly vulnerable to put the “outsiders” into their greatest depression phase, so it happened with Sushant Singh Rajput.

Nepotism is not always harmful to others, take the case of Raj Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor, and Ranbir Kapoor. They are from the same family, a hierarchy in the Bollywood, but never pretended to be the unjust elite like others who don’t even perform well and want to suppress other’s chances to survive in Bollywood as well as in real life too as of now! Whereas the Kapoor’s have been the gem of actors in this industry, unlike the “elite”. This should set as an epitome of a safer side of nepotism.

We at SHORTFUNDLYTM , respect all the talents and value every emerging talent equally and seriously condemn the misuse of the opportunities and authorities by the “elite” in the Bollywood, where everyone should get a chance, but the reality lies darker than the shine what is imagined by anyone of us!
