Since Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, the debate over nepotism, groupism, and bullying in Bollywood has reignited and there’s an outrage on social media regarding the same. Shekhar Suman’s son Adhyayan Summan, in a recent interview, talked about the power dynamics in the film industry, and revealed how 14 of his film were shelved. He also talked about Sushant Singh Rajput’s death and how unfortunate it was that it took a person to end their life for people to realize. He also praised his ex-girlfriend Kangana Ranaut for having fought Bollywood biggies, and making a name for herself in the film industry.
In an interview with Bollywood Bubble, Adhyayan Summan said, “My 14 films were shelved and the box-office collection of my films were projected wrongly. People haven’t paid attention to this earlier. It’s very unfortunate that we required Sushant Singh Rajput to commit suicide for people to realise. I am pretty sure that there might be some pressure as well even if it’s a suicide and not a murder. Because I understand the bigger you get here, they put the pressure on you and no one knows what their intentions are behind all these. It is very difficult to trust anybody in our industry.”
Adhyayan said that nepotism is rampant in every field, but what needs to be talked about is groupism and favouritism. He further said that people keep saying he talks ill about his ex, but said that he has always made it clear that he respects Kangana Ranaut a lot. “She has been through a lot and worked hard to earn the respect and fame that she enjoys today. She is the perfect example who fought the bigger people in the industry and made a huge name for herself. So hats off to her,” said Adhyayan.
Kangana Ranaut has always spoken up against nepotism, right from the moment when she graced the couch on Karan Johar’s chat show Koffee With Karan, where she called him the flag bearer of nepotism on his own show.
