Sushant Singh Rajput died by suicide on June 14 in his apartment in Mumbai. The death of the actor led to the revival of the debate around nepotism in Bollywood. Now, late actor Inder Kumar's wife Pallavi has opened up on nepotism and how it affected her late husband.
Pallavi took to Instagram to share a long note and accused Bollywood celebs Shah Rukh Khan and Karan Johar of promising her husband help but it turned out to be false hopes.
In her note, she said that Inder Kumar was at the peak of his career in the 90s. She said that before he passed away he went to two influential people asking for work as help. “These days everyone is talking about.. Nepotism.... Just like Sushant Singh Rajput my husband late actor Inder Kumar achieved his fame on his own. He was at a peak in 90s. Before he passed away I still remember he went to 2 people big shots asking for work as help. Just for the record he was already doing small projects. But he wanted to do big movies just like he started. He went to Mr. Karan johar, I was there too. In front of me all happened. He made us wait outside his van for 2 hrs. Then his manager Garima comes and says karan is busy. But we waited & wen he came out, he says inder keep in touch with garima at the moment there is no work for you. And inder did that... for the next 15 days ... the fone was picked up saying there is no work at the moment... after that inder was blocked,” she wrote.
She further mentioned Inder's meeting with Shah Rukh Khan on the sets of Zero. “The same behaviour was given to Inder by none other than Mr. Shah Rukh Khan... He met inder and said he will call you in a week . At the moment there is no work.this all happened on the set of Zero. Later was even asked to keep in touch with his manger Pooja... she did the same wat garima did.... Can one imagine and believe dat there has not been any work available in these two production houses. Karan johar has said many times he works with stars... well my husband was a star ... still people remember him by his work.”
“Why is it so difficult for these big shots to help talented people. What are they scared of ? Or we can just say they are bad human beings... pretending to be nice. Nepotism should stop... people are dying and these big shots are still not understanding the effect. Government should take strict action against such people,” she added.
Inder made his film debut with Masoom and had a promising career in the 90s. He passed away due to cardiac arrest at his residence in 2017.
