Sushant Singh Rajput's suicide has put the entire industry in shock. People are talking about nepotism and discussing how difficult it is for an outsider to survive in Bollywood. Now, singer Sonu Nigam has V-Logged to talk about the bad state of the music industry. He has shared that young artistes, composers and directors find it difficult to survive and make it big in the music industry because of the top 'music mafias' that are in the ruling. He has asked people to be kind to others so that people don't die by suicide and appreciate the talent that young musicians have.
Sonu Nigam has shared the video with the caption, "You might soon hear about Suicides in the Music Industry." In the video, he starts by saying that for the past few days he has been sad due to the death of Sushant Singh Rajput and the 20 soldiers who martyred at Galwan Valley. He said, "People are going through a lot of mental and emotional pressure after hearing the news of Sushant Singh Rajput dying by suicide. It’s very difficult to come to terms with the fact that a celebrated, talented young life is no longer with us."
Further he could be heard saying, "Both these incidents have affected me a lot. Through this vlog I would like to put in a request to the music companies - today an actor has died by suicide, tomorrow it can be a musician also. The ‘music mafia’ is bigger than the film mafia in the country. I was lucky enough to escape from the shackles of music companies, but a number of young artistes are going through a lot of stress. Even if the director, producer and music composer wants to work with a particular artiste, the music companies object."
In the end, he requests all to be kind and humane. Check out Sonu Nigam's video below. (Also Read: Sushant Singh Rajput Death: Doctor Reveals The Late Actor Regretted Breaking Up With Ankita Lokhande; Mentions He Had A Bipolar Mind - Reports)
