Whether nepotism existed in the entertainment industry or not, but post Sushant Singh Rajput's sudden demise by suicide, the debate on the topic has surely gained momentum. People including celebs are coming in open to talk about the same and sharing their take on it. The recent one to join is Sushmita Sen, who recently made her comeback with web series Aarya.

While interacting with PTI, Sushmita said that competition between insiders and outsiders is not new and but what’s important is that it should be a 'fair game for everyone'.
