Sushant Singh Rajput died by suicide on June 14, 2020, at his abode in Bandra. His untimely demise has shocked and shattered everyone. But his sudden death has created a room for huge debate on nepotism in the film fraternity. Many Bollywood actors came forward and shared their piece of story on Nepotism that prevails in B-Town. Now talented composer and singer Amit Trivedi gave his version on the entire Nepotism debate which aggravated post SSR’s demise.
Amit has composed music for many of SSR’s movies. To name some Manjha from (Kai Po Che), Namo Namo Shankara (Kedarnath) Qaafirana (Kedarnath). While giving an interview to BollywoodLife he said, “Whenever I will perform these songs on stage or play them, the first thing that will come to anybody’s mind will be Sushant and how heartbroken we all of us are for the extreme step he has taken. Whatever may be the reason but he has taken the step. I was really shattered and heartbroken. We have worked very closely, it’s tough to deal with such a loss." He also gave his take on the current hot topic of Nepotism in industry.
He stated, “Nepotism is rubbish. It is the most time-wasted topic people are consuming these days. There is nothing called nepotism. If there is nepotism, it’s only among heroes and heroines, otherwise, it’s nowhere. No one’s father is bothered about whose son is the director or the music director or the singer. You should ask this question only to actors. No one else is bothered about it, I am not. There is nothing called nepotism in the music industry.” (Also Read : Dil Bechara Trailer: Rumoured Ex GF Kriti Sanon Shares A Heartbreaking Post, Says It’ll Be Hard To Watch The Film Starring Sushant Singh Rajput)
