Abhijeet didn’t stop here and continued to reveal more. This is what he stated further, “Yeh bahut zyaada ho raha hai. It wasn’t like this before in the ‘90’s. Back then, it was even unthinkable.

A film director and music composer used to decide which singer they want, not some company or actor”, he adds.
It was Sonu Nigam who first tried to take the issue in front of the public through one of his videos. Also Read: Sushant Singh Rajput Suicide Case: Twitterati Demand A CBI Probe Into the Case
