SSR’s take on B-Town’s latest buzzwords- Nepotism, Racism

Mumbai [India], Apr 17 : The two latest buzz words in the B-Town are 'racism' and 'nepotism.' Like many other celebs, Sushant Singh Rajput too shared his views on the two terms, which has divided the industry into two, with some going for the words and some going against it.

When asked for his opinion on the recent chaos, created by Abhay Deol, against the celebs' fairness cream endorsements, the 'Kai Po Che' actor said, "As responsible citizens and actors, we should never endorse fairness cream." Recently, in a series of Facebook posts, Abhay ridiculed the likes of Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor to Vidya Balan and John Abraham for featuring in ad campaigns, which promote fairness creams, especially the ones that chose campaigns that, subtly or blatantly, tried to sell the idea that being dark was not beautiful.

Sushant even reacted to Karan Johar-Kangana Ranaut's 'Nepotism' controversy and said, "All the films I have done, I had the luxury of choosing my films." For the unversed, in an episode of 'Koffee with Karan,' Kangana Ranaut boldly talked about nepotism in the film industry, leaving the whole B-Town in shock.

Sushant was at the trailer launch of his upcoming movie 'Raabta' that stars Kriti Sanon alongside. The Dinesh Vijan directed flick, portraying a tale of reincarnation, is slated to release on June 9..
