‘Bollywood Mafia’ promotes nepotism, says Adnan Sami
Bollywood is facing the heat for promoting nepotism and Adnan Sami is the latest to shed light on this hot topic. Several established industry names have blamed the so-called ‘Mafia of Bollywood’ for promoting nepotism, and Sami supported these claims through his Instagram posts.
The recent debate on Nepotism in the Bollywood industry has created two groups: The talented newcomers who want to make their name in the industry and the children belonging to the influential families in the industry.
Everyone in the industry is speaking up about the injustices they have faced in showcasing their talents and how they have been neglected to please the influential Bollywood families by promoting and appreciating their children’s talent.
Sami, the former Pakistani Indian singer posted several statements on this topic on his Instagram account. He claimed that only a ‘Herculean’ type of SHAKE UP can save the industry from nepotism.
He called out industry mafia, saying that several of the top music and movie producers have constantly tried to control all the content.
“Have you, the movie & music ‘Mafia’ who have arrogantly entitled yourselves as the ‘self-professed & self-appointed gods’ not learned anything from history that you can NEVER control art & the ecosystem of creativity of any field?”
He then went on to say that India is a country of 1.3 billion people and they have only ‘remakes’ & ‘remixes’ to offer? He said new talent should be allowed to portray their talent without any interference from the Bollywood Mafia.
He ended his post with a quote by Abraham Lincoln, “ENOUGH!! MOVE OVER!! “CHANGE” is here & it’s knocking on your door!! Ready or Not, it‘s coming in! Brace yourselves!”
In a recent post on his Instagram account, he directly highlights the problems with nepotism. The key highlights of his recent statement: “We have all been privy to how in recent times roles and positions have been rewarded and the truth is, we have turned a blind eye towards what impact that may be having on the overall climate culture of how our industry (Bollywood) is looked at and most importantly how unwelcoming it makes someone who may not have a lineage feel.”
He then added that the new talent needs help to make their mark on the industry and are more deserving of the privileges that are being offered to the influential families’ kids.
“We are there for you and will fight to ensure that you share your gift of God with the world, which God intended!”
