Today, at the trailer launch of Raabta, Sushant Singh Rajput was asked about his views on this much-talked topic currently. The actor, who does not have any filmy background stated, “Almost all the films I have done and the films I am doing in one and a half years and the films I really want to do are the many options and I had the luxury of choosing these films. So, from a personal point of view, I cannot complain."

He further added, "Having said that, it’s not that it is there and it’s everywhere in all sorts of industry, not just Bollywood. If you allow new talents from outside also to flourish and encourage them more, then it’s good. If you don’t allow that, then there’s a problem and I think the whole structure of industry would collapse."

What do you guys have to say about Sushant’s views on nepotism?

Like SSR, many other actors have said that they haven’t experienced it. One of them was Anushka Sharma, who had said at an event, "Yes, I am an outsider and he launched me in a big film. Similarly, he has launched Ranveer Singh and Parineeti Chopra and us three are completely from a non-filmy background. Going by my experience, I have a lot of respect for Aditya Chopra because he gave a platform to the actors and I have personally never experienced it [nepotism]. For me, things changed after Band Baaja Baaraat and then people started taking me seriously and that film literally changed my life."

She also said, "After this, I understood that if you are doing well here, people would want to work with you and if you are not putting your 100%, people would not work with you be it anything. In this industry, people take business decisions.”
