Singer and composer Amit Trivedi dismisses nepotism remarks, says there is no nepotism in the music industry

The discussion around nepotism in Bollywood and other such industries doesn't seem to be fading away. Now in a recent interview singer and composer Amit Trivedi has weighed in with his own opinion about the matter. Amit Trivedi has said that there is no nepotism in the music industry at all. Previously Sonu Nigam, Adnan Sami and others accused the music industry of running as per the rules of the music mafia.

 
Amit Trivedi is famous for composing songs like Manjha (Kai Po Che), Namo Namo Shankara, Qaafirana and Jaan Nisaar (Kedarnath).
 
He said, “Whenever I will perform these songs on stage or play them, the first thing that will come to anybody’s mind will be Sushant and how heartbroken we all of us are for the extreme step he has taken. Whatever may be the reason but he has taken the step. I was really shattered and heartbroken. We have worked very closely, it’s tough to deal with such a loss."
 
"Nepotism is rubbish. It is the most time-waste topic people are consuming these days. There is nothing called nepotism. If there is nepotism, it’s only among heroes and heroines, otherwise, it’s nowhere. No one’s father is bothered about whose son is the director or the music director or the singer. You should ask this question only to actors. No one else is bothered about it, I am not. There is nothing called nepotism in the music industry, " he added.
 
Amit Trivedi rose to fame after he worked on Anurag Kashyap's 2009 film DevD which starred Abhay Deol in the lead role.
