Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death has left the film industry shocked and teary-eyed on June 14. Kangana Ranaut in a two-minute video, slammed the nepotism and hypocrisy the industry comes with.
“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?”.

Kangana captioned” 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!”.
Kangana also questioned why his movies were not acknowledged at award shows? “Unko unki debut film Kai Po Che ke liye koi acknowledgement nahi mila, ya MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, ya Kedarnath ya Chhichhore. Chhichhore is the best film and by the best director, par unki film ko koi acknowledgement nahi.”
She further added: “Aap agar unke last kuch posts dekhe, woh clearly key raha hai, logon ko beg kar raha hai ki please meri filmein dekho, mera koi Godfather nahin hai, mujhe nikal diya jayega iss industry se. Apne interviews mein woh yeh zahir karte hai ki mujhe yeh industry kyu nahi apnati hai? I feel like a leftover (sic). Toh kya iss hadse ki koi buniyaad nahin hai?”
Kangana concluded by saying, “Sushant ki galti yeh this ki woh unki baat maan gaya. Unhone kaha tum worthless ho toh woh maan gaya. He didnt remember what his mother told him. Toh humein decide karna hai who will write history? We will decide that.”
Many celebrities including Shah Rukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, Ileana D’Cruz, Karan Johar, Abhishek Bachchan, Riteish Deshmukh, Anushka Sharma, Alia Bhatt, Salman Khan, Parineeti Chopra, Sara Ali Khan expressed their grief on social media. Many cricketers and politicians including Virender Sehwag, Rohit Sharma, PM Narendra Modi and others expressed their shock through their posts on social media.
