A complaint has been filed against eight persons, including Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, filmmaker Karan Johar, director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and producer Ekta Kapoor, in connection with actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case.
Many said that prominent figures and producers only support the “entitled” star kids or “insiders” while “outsiders” such as Sushant are too often ignored.
The complaint has been filed by advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha with support of Rajput’s family at a court in Bihar’s Muzaffarpur. In his complaint, Ojha alleged that Sushant was removed from seven films and some of his films were not released.
Previously, many others also made similar allegations. In fact, Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam also revealed that Sushant was recently removed from seven films signed by him. He said, “He lost the films in just six months. Why? The film industry’s ruthlessness works on a very different level. And that ruthlessness took the life of one talented person.”
Dabangg(2010) fame owned Bollywood film director Abhinav Singh Kashyap, posted on Facebook regarding the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput on 14 June. In an over 1000-word post on his Facebook page dated 15 June, Kashyap alleged that a “bigger malaise” in Bollywood was behind his death. Comparing it to the #MeToo movement, he notes that Rajput’s untimely demise is just the tip of the iceberg. Kashyap appealed to the Maharashtra government to launch a detailed investigation.
Actor Gulshan Devaiah has rejected the theory that Bollywood is a ‘family’. He was reacting to a statement by actor Meera Chopra, in which she’d apologised on behalf of the film industry for not standing by Shushant. On Meera Chopra’s reply, Gulshan wrote, “Really sorry to be doing this but Bollywood is not a family, it never was and never will be . If one thinks it’s a family .. there is the problem. Bollywood is an imaginary name for a place of work that’s it . I am really not trying to put anybody down here & sorry if it seems.”
