Sushant Singh Rajput’s unfortunate death has sparked the nepotism debate once again in the industry. Soon after he died due to suicide at his Bandra apartment, many filmmakers and actors are opening up about the industry politics. The nepotism debate has escalated so much that netizens have been slamming Bollywood celebrities and star kids. Sushmita Sen, who’s making her come back to films with Neerja director Ram Madhvani’s OTT film Aarya, was recently asked how she survived nepotism in the industry.
It so happened when Sushmita Sen conducted a Q&A on Twitter. A user asked, “@thesushmitasen how you survived Nepotism in Bollywood?,” replying to them Sen gave a heart-winning answer. She said, “By focusing on my Audience...YOU GUYS!!! I will continue to work as an actor as long as YOU want to see me!! #simpleenough #AskAarya.” Following the heat on social media, Karan Johar and Alia Bhatt have seen a major drop in their Insta followers. Not only that, but actresses like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Ananya Panday, Sonakshi Sinha, and Sonam Kapoor among others have also limited their comments section.
Earlier, Ram Madhvani had taken to Insta to write an emotional note for the entire cast of the film. Sharing a video, he wrote, “Words fall short to explain how elated and grateful to the universe we are knowing that today, you all, our audiences can finally stream into @disneyplushotstarvip and watch #Aarya. When @amitamadhvani and I look at Aarya, we see the work of so many people behind putting it together that made it possible for us to bring our best work forward. A project close to us because of the way we accomplished the momentous task of bringing it to life.”
