Several Bollywood celebs and prominent filmmakers have come under fire after the debate on nepotism reignited after Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. One prominent director and talk show host was especially targetted by fans, as he is considered to be the face of Bollywood’s nepotism problem.
Recently, Swara Bhasker took to social media to back the prominent director, claiming that he stayed calm and collected when Kangana Ranaut accused him of nepotism. Team Kangana Ranaut’s twitter just hit back against Swara Bhasker and called her out for supporting the host accused of nepotism.
