Year 2020 is the darkest year for Bollywood. We have lost some luminous talents like Irfan Khan, Rishi Kapoor and Sushant Singh Rajput. While the first two were suffering from cancer, the shocking suicide of Sushant Singh Rajput left the nation in disbelief. The young actor was a self-made star with good projects in his kitty. Besides films, he was also foraying into various start-ups dealing with science and innovations. What made the young man suddenly take such a step is beyond everyone comprehension. Well, reports say that he was suffering from clinical depression since six months or so. This was confirmed by his sister and close friends.
Numerous conspiracy theories around his death are floating on social media. Many are alleging that there is more than what meets the eye. Everyone seems to be investigating the circumstances. Irfan Khan son Babil in a long post urged fans to stop this. He wrote, “I urge you to not blame someone or something for this incredibly unfortunate happening, I urge you to accept that life is filled with leg spin deliveries bouncing off spin with no apparent explanation or understanding provided, I urge you to stop investigating the reason because it only brings more despair to the people intimately suffering the loss. Instead we must celebrate the evolution of these sincere men and let their wisdom manifest in our own journeys in some way, hoping to keep little lanterns of their memories ignited in our sensitive souls.”
Reading this post, Anshuman Malhotra commented, “Iv learnt from both that we are just not actors who are here to entertain but we are artists who have a great responsibility towards the society too. And keeping this in mind and soul I will always keep them alive in me Sending you love babil.” However, some people were quick to point out the other side of the story. A fan wrote, “I truly respect Irfan sir I was in shock on his demise but bigger shock on Sushant it wasnt natural not he is weak minded a guy with such cannot be ..we just want truth to prevail.”
