Bollywood actor Sushant Singh's untimely and sudden death has stirred a debate in the B-Town with many hurling accusations at Bollywood bigwigs for shunning Sushant out for being an outsider. Now, his brother-in-law has launched an app to measure how nepotistic a film is.
Vishal Kirti, the brother-in-law of the late actor, launched the app called 'Nepmeter' to analyze how ‘nepotistic or independent’ the crew of a film or television show is.
According to the official Twitter handle of the app:
"Fight Bollywood Nepotism with Information. We will provide ratings for movies based on how nepotistic or independent movie crew is. If the #nepometer is high, then it’s time to #boycottbollywoodnepotism fightnepotism."
The first film analyzed by the app is Mahesh Bhatt’s Sadak 2, starring Alia Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sanjay Dutt, and Pooja Bhatt. The app has rated it to be 98% nepotistic.
According to a tweet on the Nepometer Twitter page:
“#Sadak2 is 98% Nepotistic. We rated it based on 5 categories, Producer, Lead Artists, Supporting Artists, Director & Writer. 4 out of 5 categories have Bollywood Family members. When #nepometer is high it’s time to #boycottbollywood. Will you watch this movie? Tell us in comments.”
