Groupism and Nepotism exist in Kollywood? Actors respond

A lot about the existence of nepotism in Bollywood is being heard. Since the day debates and discussions about the same have started, especially post the death of Sushant Singh Rajput, actors from industries as well have started opening up about nepotism that exists in their respective film industries and groupism is other ones as well.
Call it Groupism or the gangs… music composer and Oscar winner AR Rahman opened up recently that a few people have ganged up against him to make sure that he doesn’t get any projects to take up. In an interview he gave recently, Rahman revealed Mukesh Chhabra, the director of Dil Bechara was told not to approach him for the film.
Further, he said that the same has happened to Resul Pookutty as well. He added that both these stars have made it big in Bollywood as well and that somebody couldn’t take it. Talking about the same, actor Nataraj Subramani wrote to his Twitter profile and asked, “I don't know if there is Tamil cinema Nepotism or not .. But there is groupism ... Someone can determine what is available to whom ... Who are you ????” (sic)
In response to his tweet, Shanthanu Bhagyaraj replied, “#Nepotism is here too ..It's the same kind of people who decide who should work with us ...They support a few to maintain quality and will not allow others to increase their quality.” (sic)
Surely, favoritism, nepotism, and groupism exist everywhere and not all the actors and filmmakers come forward to respond about it. The question is why none from the Tamil industry has ever opened up about it?
