Amit Trivedi has composed for two of Sushant Singh Rajput’s most memorable movies. He recently shared this views that the actor will be remembered through “Manjha” from ‘Kai Po Che!’ (2013), “Namo Namo Shankara”, “Qaafirana” and “Jaan Nisaar” from ‘Kedarnath’ (2018). The composer is completely against the debate of nepotism. After the demise of Sushant Singh Rajput on June 14, 2020, the nepotism debate has been getting bigger daily.
He is one of the first music composers to come forward and speak openly about this whole on-going debate. On the subject of Sushant Singh Rajput, he mentions that they have “worked very closely” and “it’s tough to deal with such a loss.”
However, he is very adamant regarding nepotism, “Nepotism is rubbish. It is the most time-waste topic people are consuming these days. There is nothing called nepotism. If there is nepotism, it’s only among heroes and heroines, otherwise, it’s nowhere. No one’s father is bothered about whose son is the director or the music director or the singer. You should ask this question only to actors. No one else is bothered about it, I am not. There is nothing called nepotism in the music industry.”
On the work front, “Maidaan” is his next big release. Last weekend, Amit and the band ‘Agnee’ released a Times of Music episode on the music reality show on MX Player, where they performed the timeless classic “Aane Wala Pal” from ‘Gol Maal’ (1979). The recreation of the song was a tribute to R.D Burman, S.D Burman and Jaidev.
