Sushant's untimely death reignited the nepotism debate in Bollywood as well as the music industry. Several singers and composers came forward with their experience in the industry. Recently Amit Trivedi, who has sung many songs for the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput said that the trend may exist among actors, but it is not followed in the music industry.
Talking about nepotism, Hindustan Times quoted Amit as saying, "Nepotism is rubbish. It is the most time-waste topic people are consuming these days. There is nothing called nepotism. If there is nepotism, it's only among heroes and heroines, otherwise it's nowhere. No one's father is bothered about whose son is the director or the music director or the singer. You should ask this question only to actors. No one else is bothered about it, I am not. There is nothing called nepotism in the music industry."
