Sushant Singh Rajput’s death sparked a debate in Bollywood over nepotism. Many Bollywood celebrities accused him of favoring ‘Big Star Kids’, making it difficult for ‘outsiders’ to make a mark in the industry. However, actor Richa Chadha is disappointed that instead of talking about a person’s mental health, Sushant died to “talk more nonsense about nepotism”.
Sushant and Richa attended acting workshops together early in their careers. For Richa, the late actor was a friend who would come on her bike to pick her up for rehearsals.
“Pathetic”, trolling the game that trolled social media after his death blaming Sushant’s friends and girlfriend, Richa shared, “it despises this situation as ‘blame’ because it is seriously serious Is and ignores the role of mental health. All that has unfolded after the tragedy is a visual demonstration of what we call ro chita par roti sekana ‘. I never thought that a metaphor could be used literally is. “
Richa Chadha in her latest blog post further talked about the Indian film industry and how it is divided between “kind and merciless people” and not “insiders and outsiders”. She believes in the industry that operates as a food chain, “People are crooks when they find out they can run away with it.”
Richa wrote, “Those who are suffering today, they themselves are cruel towards their subordinates. You hate your bullying for not being ethical with you, as a bully to someone who works under you, albeit it is a rite of passage for them. “
He said, “There are insiders who can be kind and generous and outsiders who are punishingly arrogant. In the nascent stage of my career, I was often ‘cut to size’ by outsiders. From various forms of subtle sabotage I had to put my full strength to recover. “
In the blog post, Masan also shared his opinion on nepotism, “As nepotism, it just makes me laugh out loud in real life. I don’t hate “Star Kids”. Why are we expected? If someone’s father is a star, they are born in that house, just like we are for our people. Do you feel ashamed of your parents? Is it right to expect someone else to be ashamed of their parents / families / heritage? This is a disgusting and nonsensical argument. “
Richa draws attention to it that it is not easy even for ‘Star Kids’. He wrote, “wrote star-kids” must deal with rivalry within their clans. Often it is an inter-generational, unforgiving and all-encompassing competition. Hierarchies also exist within the clan. We can never know what another person might behave here. I am sympathetic, but I do not know that pain, unless I stand in their shoes. “
Leaving his blog, the 33-year-old actor suggested some changes in the industry. “We need an eco-system where writers and directors are given the most importance. We need gender equality in real, vibrant form. We need strong insurance for stunt artists and light people, ”Richa wrote.
