Veteran actor Prakash Raj has opened up on the practice of nepotism in the film industry and blamed it for the untimely demise of the talented young Sushant Singh Rajput, who was found hanging at his residence on Sunday. “#nepotism I have lived through this .. I have survived … my wounds are deeper than my flesh ..but this child #SushanthSinghRajput couldn’t.. will WE learn .. will WE really stand up and not let such dreams die .. #justasking,” tweeted Prakash Raj. Prakash Raj also shared an old video on Twitter where Sushant Singh Rajput can be seen talking about the practice of nepotism in Bollywood.
“Nepotism is there and everywhere, not just in Bollywood. You can’t do anything about it. Nepotism can co-exist and nothing would happen but at the same time if you deliberately don’t allow the right talents to come up, then there is a problem. Then the whole structure of the industry would collapse one day…” Sushant says in the video.
Sushant Singh Rajput’s last rites were performed here on Monday in the presence of his family, friends, fans and a few industry colleagues.
