Sushant Singh Rajput’s drastic step to take his own life would always pierce our hearts. The actor whose charming smile with twinkling eyes would lit up the surroundings would be thoroughly missed. Those who knew him, have wonderful memories to cherish while those who don’t have all the films and characters that he lived to see his magic again and again. Richa Chadha who knew Sushant Singh Rajput from his early days recently penned a heartfelt blog bidding adieu to her dear friend and also spoke about nepotism and more.
Richa Chadha began the post with Sahir Ludhianvi‘s poem and wrote, “All this in the wake of a suicide by a beautiful actor who happened to be an old friend.” She also recalled how Sushant would pick her up on his bike to attend workshops as a part of a theatre group. Sushant’s demise had triggered a debate over a lot of things like nepotism and insider and outsider in the industry. Talking about the same, the Fukrey actress wrote, “It is being said that the industry seems to be divided between ‘insiders’ and ‘outsiders’? In my opinion the Hindi film industry and it’s entire eco-system is only divided between kind and unkind people.”

She went on to reveal her opinion as to how the industry works and has not minced her words while doing so. “In the brief time that I have spent here as the first person of my lineage, my assessment is that the industry operates like a food chain. People are scoundrels when they know they can get away with it. Those who are anguished today have themselves been cruel to their subordinates. You hate your bully for not being ethical with you, while bullying someone working under you as though it is a rite of passage for them. This is an acceptable MO in this dog-eat-dog world. Not feeling remorse is considered a leadership quality., decency, sensitivity is considered a handicap.”
Further, Richa also spoke about nepotism saying that the whole hate and arguments surrounding it are nonsensical. “As for nepotism, it just makes me laugh out loud in real life. I don’t hate “star kids”. Why are we expected to? If someone’s father is a star, they are born into that household the same as we are to our folks. Are you ashamed of your parents ? Is it right to expect someone else to be ashamed of their parents/families/legacy? This is a hateful and nonsense argument.”
