The Nepometer Of Bollywood

The untimely death of Sushant Singh Rajput is proving out to be a catalyst for a major change in Bollywood. Similarly, one such change is Nepometer Of Bollywood. Read here to know more about it.

The Idea of Nepometer of Bollywood

This idea is of Sushant Singh Rajput’s brother in law, Vishal Kirti. Recently, he made an announcement informing the launch of Nepometer in Bollywood. In addition, he will also be launching a website for the same.

Nepometer relates to the issue and controversy of Nepotism in Bollywood.

What does The Nepometer Of Bollywood do?

The Nepometer of Bollywood will give ratings to every movie. The meter will let the audiences know the quotient of nepotism in a particular movie. For instance, audiences will get to know if the stars and the backing of the movie come from industry connections.

For example, a movie like Thappad will not have a very high rating on the Nepometer. However, a movie like Kalank will have a high rating on the Nepometer. Consequently, this is because the movie is backed by Karan Johar. In addition, the movie also has star kids like Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt. However, in the case of ‘outsiders’, the rating will be lower.

Here is a little peak at the way Nepometer Works

How Nepometer Of Bollywood Works?

To show the audience how the Nepometer actually works, the makers released a Nepometer analysis of the upcoming movie Sadak 2.  The team of the platform rated the movie in 5 different aspects. The rating is given on the basis of who the producer of the movie, the writer, the actors (leads) as well as the supporting actors are. According to their analysis, 4 of these 5 categories for Sadak 2 have Bollywood family members involved.

The platform is already gaining a lot of support. The website already has more than 18 thousand people following it. Well, all this definitely brings out a new hope of change in Bollywood. Therefore, taking steps towards appreciation of talent in Bollywood rather than appreciation of connections.

Towards A Good Time

The debate on Nepotism has been going on for a long time. It definitely gained momentum from Kangana Ranaut going on Koffee with Karan and bashing the host himself for supporting and promoting Nepotism in the industry. In addition, more and more stars started to talk about the issue thereafter.

The issue became a more hot topic following the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. A rising actor with a storehouse of talent. For instance, not just in acting he was also curious and had many more talents. For example, he was an extremely smart person, intelligent, well-read in Indian and Western philosophies, trained to fly planes and preparing for NASA’s space mission. In addition, he was also actively involved in charitable activities. However, his death raised suspicions. Not only was it unnatural. It was also unforeseen and still hard to digest.

A lot of facts also point towards a foul play at the background. In addition, a major reason for his depression was  Nepotism. To stop others from succumbing to such situations and as a tribute to our beloved SSR, the brother in law has come up with this website.
