Sushant Singh Rajput’s sudden demise has shaken the whole Bollywood and has also escalated the debate regarding nepotism, lobbying and favouritism. Many controversies are also doing rounds around Salman Khan, Karan Johar, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Ekta Kapoor among others for preferring star kids over ‘talent’. Actors, Directors and Producers are slowly opening about the dark side of the Bollywood. However, singer Sonu Nigam has come out and opened up about “music mafia”.
Yes, you read it right! Not just in the acting industry but also in the singing world there are nepotism and favouritism who have been creating the roadblocks in the career of the new and aspiring talents. Taking to his Instagram, he posted a video wherein he talked about singers and composers who lost their work just because a certain actor recommended against working them.
Sonu who started his career in the year 1991 further added that even he has dubbed songs for films even after knowing that it will be recorded in someone else’s voice. Since he started his career in the early 90s he didn’t fell in the clutches of the so-called music mafias, however, he feels bad for the younger generation artists who are facing such mafias both in music and acting world.
Not just this, the singer also went on to warn people that if they don’t put a stop on this, they might soon hear of suicides in the music industry as well.
