Explain how nepometer will perform accurately. If you can explain it, then great.....it can be used. But the person who said that it will be hard to get valid results from nepometer is right. Still that person was downvoted because Indian viewers are too much jazbaati. They think that every post is against Sushant and they don't read carefully. Any invention or new policy has to go through this kind of screening. No good will come from using a faulty system....not even justice. Stupid these downvoters are.

I support and watch good movies. Be it anybody. Nepo or no nepo. Except dhoni movie I didnt enjoy sushants work. I loved Iran movies, raj kumar rao movies, but in my eyes his movies wasn't that good. I don't care , inwatch movies for entertainment if movies are good I watch them. I dont care about what happens in their personal life. It's none if my business. Where was his family when he was struggling? Why didnt they launch this app then ? He was depressed why was he left alone ? His sister knew about his depression why wasn't she with him ? What's the use if this app now. Bollywood is a piece business. Each producer director has their money they use for films. It us their money, they're wish to cast whoever they want. It is like asking ambani to handover their companies to an outsider over their own kids. It is a business, they can cast whoever they want.

Are you saying- Bollywood Mafia happens and let it happen. Do you realize how it can effect cinema as a whole. If few people are calling the shots- and only star kids are getting good roles- what if these star kids have no talent and keep getting these movies. in the end the movie suffers- the script suffers and the creativity suffers. No wonder we have such few good movies come every year and hardly any talent. Because real talent like Sushant Singh gets sidelined. Sushant was brilliant in every role he did. Have you seen one scene of Sushant in Dhoni- where his old friend comes to see him. It was a difficult scene and Sushant was awesome in showing perfect emotion that was required for that scene. Go watch and you will know how good he was. This NEPOTISM needs to die- the war is on.

For me any movie or talent launched by Dharma or Nadiyadwala or Bhatts is a big No!!

Not only talent suffer a loss of career but an audience has to tolerate wooden actors in the name of art. Heavy marketing is involved to make these mediocre actors look like the greatest talent to come out of privileged family. Rejection by audiences is the only cure. Enough of pr drama and marketing. People have smartened to understand the real reason behind Being Human. People also now know how Aalia is considered the best actress or how Katrina stays relevant with frozen expression or who writes these blind items and for what, people also know the filth behind all the designer wear, flashy lifestyle of KJo, Nadiyadwala, Bhushan Kumar, Vidhu Vinod Chopra and YRF. We the audience have had enough of this sub par BS. We need real movies with real talented artists.

Such a stupid idea when he was alive. Nobody bothered. This wont work. Some star kids are good actors. Alia was brilliant in udta Punjab, hritik rosina is brilliant actor, kareena us talented. I will watch good movies. Nepo or no nepo I will watch good movies period.

The issue is why talent from outside is not taking into account. Also these actors and actresses are getting lot of marketing backed by Karan Joshars and Yash Raj. hence brainwashing the audience to just watch them. On a side note- Kareena is the most overated actress.

Mr. Kirti, a nepometer will not provide fool-proof or valid results. Even a polygraph cannot accurately determine if a person is lying or telling the truth. Any type of measure that contains factors of doubt or uncertainty will be lacking in scientific validity. I think if Sushant were alive, even he would tell you that such a mechanism would be flawed and unreasonable because he had a scientific mind. There' nothing wrong with trying to establish justice. But people, justice demands that we stop being jazbaati and try to come up with logical and valid and sound methods. Please post PV.

Way to go, this is much needed for those who harm other people's prospects and push them in corner. The problem is not that friends and family of the nepo gang should not enter films - it is the systematic snatching away of work and pushing the outsiders away which is a huge problem of bollywood in last 20 years.
