Sushant Singh Rajput’s tragic demise has sent shockwaves all over the nation. Fans are demanding a CBI probe in the sudden death of the actor, which has been termed as a suicide. Since last week, fans are showing their fury on the ‘nepo kids’ of Bollywood. This has happened after rumours of Sushant Singh Rajput suffering due to professional rivalry were raised by some individuals. They alleged that it spiralled him towards depression. Upset people dug out videos where the late actor was seemingly mocked at award shows and Koffee With Karan. Sonam Kapoor has also been trolled badly for asking who is Sushant Singh Rajput on Koffee With Karan. People are upset that he was meted out such condescending treatment being an outsider.
Now, Karan Johar, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Ananya Panday, Suhana Khan and Alia Bhatt have all limited their comments on Instagram. This means that only people whom they follow can comment. We understand it is being done to keep away the negativity. Some of the stuff on social media is downright toxic and depressing. This nepotism debate led to Sonakshi Sinha, Zaheer Iqbal and Aayush Sharma opting out of the platform. The uproar is very much on.
The actor was found dead in the bedroom of his Bandra flat on Sunday. He was just 34. After delivering a 150 crore plus blockbuster with Chhichhore, he had films in hand. It seems he was suffering from clinical depression since six months. The actor was living with rumoured girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, his creative manager and his domestic staff at a rented place in Bandra. He had moved out of his old home some months back. Conspiracy theories around his demise are floating around on social media. Quite a few people are demanding a thorough CBI Enquiry in the matter.
The debate on nepotism has intensified in the past few days. In the mean time, family members and fans are trying to come on terms with the huge loss.
