The death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput seems quite surreal even though it has been over a month since he left us. His passing away not only ignited shocked reactions from the industry and his admirers but also revived the age-old debate on the topic of nepotism in the film industry.
There were unwarranted outcries by a few industry insiders which sparked the malicious behavior of some people in the society. Several people were named in this vicious circle of blame-game.
The police continue to investigate the reasons behind Sushant taking this fatal step and, in the process, they have brought in some close friends of the actor, his peers as well as filmmakers including Sanjay Leela Bhansali and girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty. It has been reported that the money that Rhea is spending is under the police scanner right now. That in addition with the new evidence that was found have given the discussion a new direction.
On the other hand, head honchos like Karan Johar and Aditya Chopra might not be involved in this incident. Word is that the Dharma Production and Yash Raj Films heads will not be probed further over Sushant’s death.
It was said that both filmmakers were harassing Sushant mentally through their work relationship with him. Several people in the industry including Karan Johar, Alia Bhatt, Salman Khan and Ananya Pandey among others have been targeted on social media by trolls, memes and hateful comments over the subject of nepotism. The cops investigating this situation have also concluded that the allegations have no real substance to it.
