Sushant Singh Rajput’s tragic demise has called for another debate which is related to nepotism and the existence of mafia in the Bollywood film industry. Recently, Sonu Nigam has opened up on the entire matter and also called out the music industry stating that a bigger mafia exists in the same. The singer further stated that the power remains in the hands of a few people who decide the individuals for singing. Sonu has also called out a B-town star without naming anyone.

Monali Thakur has now backed Sonu Nigam’s allegations stating that mafia does exist in the music industry and that nobody gets their due there. The singer further says that she does not like the atmosphere of the industry and has stopped looking for chances to sing for Bollywood films. In her words, she has alienated herself from the system as she cares for her mental health. Monali further says that artists do not get paid for their work.

She cites an example stating that if someone signs up with a label then they will have to give away 80% or 50% of their income. Not only that but their royalty rights are also been snatched away, claims the singer. Monali says that neither the artists get paid for Bollywood songs nor they have any rights on the same. Moreover, the singer reveals that if someone releases a single (album), then its rights are also been taken away. She signs off by agreeing to the fact that all artists get paid from live concerts.

Ofcourse there is music industry mafia. It's hardly a secret. Talented singers don't get promoted or get their due or even a chance to sing. Sonu Nigam songs are dubbed that says it all. Of course it is depressing and disappointing for singers who get overlooked, and the ones who sing for free under contracts are promoted by the mafia. It's sad that talented singers like Sonu were alienated. And so many others who did a few brilliant songs but were never called again. And we all know what Tseries is all about, better not go there.

C’mon guys. That’s how business world works all over the world. If you sign in with an agency they taken 50-60% commission. If you want 100% of the income, then use YouTube or other open platform. This isn’t nepotism, this is just capitalism! Why can’t people see the difference. Nepotism exist in Bollywood, a fact as is eveident by only star kids being promoted all the time !
