Sushant Singh Rajput‘s sudden demise has brought the topic of nepotism back to the table and social media is raging on by debating about it. It has gone to the extent that star kids are receiving so much hate online that many are losing followers and have been receiving hate comments and trolls. In light of this, Sushant’s brother-in-law, Vishal Kirti launched a platform called Nepometer that measures how nepotistic a film is.
The app reportedly measures a film by scanning five categories namely leading actors, supporting actors, director, writer, and producer. The app also has a Twitter handle. Before launching the app, Sushant‘s family members took to Instagram to introduce the app. In a long note, they expressed their concern that the outrage around Sushant’s death may fade away soon and how it has also exposed the dark side of Bollywood. The goal they said through the app is to give a percentage-wise result as to how nepotistic or independent upcoming movies are you remind you to watch more independent movies. The app is already functional and will start rating movies very soon.

https://www.facebook.com/Nepometer Dear Friends, Our family is devastated with #SushantSinghRajput ‘s passing away. We all want #justiceforsushantsinghrajput and request everyone to pray & demand for the truth to come out. This has also exposed the dark side of Bollywood and how some of the very few abuse & exploit independent artists. It’s time to take some concrete action on this front as well. I’m afraid that this momentum and outrage might fade away in few weeks. We all signed up for change. org petitions with great unity and it shows that we are looking for this Bollywood nepotism to change. I think the best way to make it happen is by using our own wallets and not watch movies that doesn’t support enough independent artists. But how do we remind ourselves about not watching nepotistic movies? And even if we can remember, how do we find alternative independent movies easily. Many independent movies just don’t make the cut of publicity to catch our eyes. Hence to support the growth of more independent movies, music and artists, we are creating an app/website called “Nepometer”. The goal of this app is to provide you a percentage meter of how nepotistic or independent upcoming movies are and send you notification to watch more independent movies. If the nepometer is high, then it’s time to #boycottbollywoodnepotism #boycottbollywood To make this successful we need your support. Please follow us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Nepometer Twitter: https://twitter.com/nepometer and Instagram: https://instagram.com/nepometer so that we can let you know once the app is available to download. Please share and forward to your family and friends so that we can take some concrete action to fight this suppression and killing of talent of the commoners like us. #InMemoryOfSushant Thanks 🙏🏼
