BOLLYWOOD: Sushant Singh Rajput’s sudden death has caused many to ask Bollywood to take an inward look, and question the role of Bollywood’s privileged club. Fans have also called out several B-town actors and filmmakers for not backing the 34-year-old bankable actor, who managed to give some of the best performances in films like Kai Po Che!, Chhichhore and more.
As the late actor’s family and close friends prepare for his last rites at the Pawan Hans crematorium at Vile Parle, Mumbai, Kangana Ranaut has asked if it was suicide or planned murder? The actress took to her Instagram profile, which is handled by her team, and shared a video talking about the actor’s capabilities. The caption read, “PSA It is important to give talent their due. And if celebrities are struggling with personal and mental health issues, the media should try and emphasize with them, rather than making it difficult for them!”
In the 2-minute long video, Kangana says, “Sushant Singh Rajput ki maut ne humein jhinjhor ke rakh diya hai, magar kuch ismein bhi ek parallel narrative chala rahe hai. Woh ye ki jinka dimaag kamzoor hota hai woh depression mein aate hai aur suicide karlete hai. Jo banda Stanford ki scholarship…woh rank-holder hai apne engineering ke entrance ki, uska dimaag kamzoor kaise ho sakta hai?” (Sushant’s death has unhinged many of us, but some are running stories with parallel narrative claiming, he had a weak mind. The actor was a rank holder, how can he have a weak mind?)
