Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise has made people debate about nepotism in Bollywood. In memory of the actor, his family members have launched a platform “Nepometer” to tell users how ‘nepotistic’ a film is.

Sushant Singh’s brother-in-law Vishal Kirti had announced the launch of Nepometer, on June 25. In an Instagram post, the team said that his death has ‘exposed the dark side of Bollywood’.

“The goal of this app is to provide you a percentage meter of how nepotistic or independent upcoming movies are and send you a notification to watch more independent movies. If the nepometer is high, then it’s time to #boycottbollywoodnepotism #boycottbollywood,” the team added.

The team released an analysis of Mahesh Bhatt’s upcoming film Sadak 2 on Thursday, July 1, and rated the film ‘98% nepotistic.

“We rated it based on 5 categories, Producer, Lead Artists, Supporting Artists, Director & Writer. 4 out of 5 categories have Bollywood Family members. When #nepometer is high, it’s time to #boycottbollywood. Will you watch this movie?,” read the Instagram post.

Sadak 2 is a sequel to the 1991 film starring Pooja Bhatt and Dutt. The movie features Alia Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sanjay Dutt, and Pooja Bhatt. Produced by Vishesh Films and Fox Star Studios, Sadak 2 is set for a digital release amid the pandemic.

In a previous post, the Nepometer team said, “We all signed up for change. org petitions with great unity and it shows that we are looking for this Bollywood nepotism to change. I think the best way to make it happen is by using our own wallets and not watch movies that doesn’t support enough independent artists. But how do we remind ourselves about not watching nepotistic movies? And even if we can remember, how do we find alternative independent movies easily. Many independent movies just don’t make the cut of publicity to catch our eyes.”
