Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput died recently. The actor’s sudden suicide news has raised some serious concerns and triggered off a massive outrage against the spirit of nepotism that prevails in Bollywood. Sushant whose home town is Patna in Bihar has vowed to ban superstar Salman Khan, filmmaker Karan Johar and actress Alia Bhatt as these are blamed for encouraging nepotism in the industry.
People in Bihar have started showing there anger and grief over the death of the actor and blamed ‘nepo(tism) gang’ in Mumbai for the actor’s extreme step.
One of the protestors was quoted as saying, “We will not allow anything to do with Salman Khan in Bihar. Being Human clothes won’t be sold in this state. No film starring Salman Khan will be released in Bihar.”
However, Patna-based television journalist Manish Jha considered the boycott as a temporary emotional reaction, “The people of Bihar love Salman Khan. The entertainment he provides in films like Tiger Zinda Hai cannot be replicated by any other star. Besides he also does plenty of charity work for humanitarian causes. But yes, big producers like Karan Johar and Aditya Chopra have to be very careful about not letting careers suffer because of their clannish tendencies.”
