The entire nation is finding it really hard to believe that the extremely talented actor Sushant Singh Rajput left all of us. He was only 34 years old and still had plenty more things to achieve or fulfil in his life and now we lost such a gem of a person and it is heartbreaking to all of us that we won’t be able to see him anymore.
His rise to fame is obvious with the kind of blockbuster movies he delivered. The star could have easily ruled Bollywood but took the decision of ending his life by hanging from the ceiling of his apartment in Bandra.
This shocking incident happened on Sunday. His death by suicide was because he was going through mental bouts of depression. Though the reason was still unclear, the whole nation has been indicting nepotism for the death of this extremely talented actor.
Died at an early age of 34, Sushant Singh Rajput left behind assets worth of crores. On Monday, Sushant’s last rites were carried out in Mumbai. But the debate on nepotism started after Sushant’s demise.
There were reports according to which the Bollywood star was banned by some big production houses including producers such as Karan Johar, Aditya Chopra, Salman Khan, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, etc.
Some video clips of old videos are also going viral on social media platforms in which A-listers or the star kids are seen making fun of Sushant during a talk show or at other events.
Social media users are very angry with the big celebrities of the industry. In fact, many are demanding that movies of Karan Johar, Salman Khan, Bhansali, YRF, etc. should be boycotted to teach them a lesson.
A campaign has been started on change.org in which people have to sign a petition for boycotting the films of KJO, SKF and YRF.
Previously, the target of 3 lakh signatures was kept and later it was increased to 5 lakhs and then to 10 lakh. But now, the count of signatures has crossed 10 lakh and the target has been renewed at 15 lakh.
The petition was created by a woman identified as Jay Shree Sarma Srikanth who is a Bollywood choreographer, Artistic director and an RJ by profession.
She is from Kenya but lives in Princeton, New Jersey. The count of signatures is increasing at a faster pace as more than 12.50 lakh people signed the petition in just 32 hours. For the unversed, the petition was started at 6:47 am on 16th June.
Jay Shree also took to Facebook and asked her friends and followers to sign the petition and get 2 Million signatures so that type of incidents are not repeated again in future.
Besides this, people of Patna from where Sushant Singh Rajput belonged have burnt effigies of bigwigs – Karan Johar and Salman Khan. In fact, they have also taken a pledge that they would not allow their movies release in the city.
