The death of Sushant Singh Rajput has kick-started the talk about the ill effects of nepotism in the country. Though nothing official, most of the people seem pretty convinced that the main reason behind his death is the film industry ignoring SSR just because he was no star kid.
Recently, Kangana Ranaut, who has invariably flagged the prevailing nepotism in the film industry openly, released a video wherein she called the death of SSR a “murder by the film industry.”
“If you look at his last few posts, he is clearly saying, begging people to see his films, that I don’t have a Godfather, I will be thrown out of this industry. Even in his interviews, he says why doesn’t this industry make me its own? I feel like a leftover. So doesn’t this incident have any reason?” she asks in a video.
“There is also a section of journalists who write blinds on Sushant, that he is psychotic, he is neurotic, he is an addict. But you find Sanjay Dutt’s addiction very cute,” she adds.
Now, the former member of the Indian Parliament, Sanjay Nirupam, has revealed in a tweet that despite the massive success of Chhichhore, Sushant Singh lost seven films in six months. And if there is any truth in the statement, then it’s only visible how ruthless the film industry is.

In February, Kamal Khan tweeted that Yashraj, SajidNadiadwala, Salmankahan, Balaji, Karan Johar, DineshVijayan, Bhansali, T-Series have all boycotted Sushant Singh Rajput and he will have to do TV series or short films to make a living.

Also, the fact that SSR’s ex-manager, Disha Salian, had also committed suicide on June 9 puts forward more questions about his death, which remain unanswered. Nevertheless, it seems like Bollywood surely has some role to play.
