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.
The 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.
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.
Several hashtags such as #BoycottSalmanKhan, #JusticeForSushantSinghRajput, #BoycottStarKids and #BoycottBollywood began to trend on Twitter. A campaign has also been started on change.org in which people have to sign a petition for boycotting the films of KJO, SKF and YRF. 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.
Meanwhile, Salman Khan has appealed to his fans to support Sushant Singh Rajput’s fans and family and not go by “the language and the curses”.
After Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, many people alleged that the late actor was being discriminated against in the film industry as he didn’t have a godfather and not a “star kid” like Salman Khan or Karan Johar.
The Dabangg actor on Saturday tweeted, “A request to all my fans to stand with Sushant`s fans and not to go by the language and the curses used but to go with the emotion behind it. Pls support n stand by his family n fans as the loss of a loved one is extremely painful.”
Earlier, Salman Khan mourned Sushant’s death as he had tweeted: “U will be missed … #RIPSushant”
