Anubhav Sinha says too much has been made out of the nepotism debate that resurfaced after the death of Sushant Singh Rajput.

Filmmaker Anubhav Sinha feels the raging debate over nepotism, which has found fresh steam after the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, is overrated.

“Nepotism is an overrated debate. It exists everywhere and I have been telling this from the day one. Too much has been made out of the word ‘nepotism’," Sinha told IANS.

He opened up on the issue of favouritism, too, and he admitted not being too aware of the newly-popular term ‘movie mafia’ before.


“Speaking of ‘mafias’, I haven’t heard this term too many times in regards to the industry. Yes, favouritism and bullying exist in the business and it exists in every business. But we all should be very careful about our fellow workers. We all should think about each other and work in a friendly manner," said the “Thappad" director.

A few months back, Sinha had taken to his verified Twitter account to inform that he would be resigning from Bollywood. The Article 15 director also added “Not Bollywood" to his Twitter name.
