Talking about the video of Sushant Singh Rajput, which Prakash Raj had shared, the former can be heard saying, “It is (Nepotism) is there and it is there everywhere. You can’t do anything about it. If Nepotism can co-exist, nothing would happen. But at the same time if you deliberately don’t allow the right talents to come up, then there is a problem. Then the whole structure of the industry would collapse”
Sushant Singh Rajput was last seen on the big screen opposite Shraddha Kapoor in Chhichhore. The actor will next be seen in Dil Bechara. A Hindi remake of 2014 released Hollywood hit ‘The Fault In Our Stars’.
