Sushant Singh Rajput’s death has sparked off debates and discussions on nepotism pertaining in Bollywood. People have also pointed out that bullying and mental pressure that outsiders face in the industry is unfair. Reacting on the nepotism debate, Sonu Sood in an interview said that people will talk about this for a few days and then move on. He asserted that a new outsider will come into the industry and he will too struggle to get noticed and bag a film.
While talking about Sushant, Sonu Sood recalled the time when he was struggling to be an actor as he said that no matter how talented you are, it is very difficult to make a mark in the industry for yourself. Moreover, Sonu pointed out that the fact of the matter is that there are hardly people in the industry who are outsiders and have become successful in the industry. Post Sushant’s demise, as we all know, a debate around nepotism started as fans of Sushant feel that it was due to nepotism that Sushant was made to feel like an outsider in the industry and talking about the whole insider-outsider debate, Sonu Sood said that it is not right to blame one section of the industry for someone’s death.
Before signing off, Sonu Sood said that the industry bigwigs are also the people who have given life to a lot of people in the industry and as a matter of fact, one needs to respect that and let time decide what is right. Also, Sonu feels that Sushant’s demise is a huge tragedy and while a lot of people have great things to say about Sushant, the Happy New Year actor feels that people should stay calm and not pounce on someone and hold them responsible.
