In an interview, Sushant Singh Rajput had revealed about being treated as a left over by Bollywood Biggies
The death of young Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput has come as a shock reverberating through society. Rajput was found hanging at his Bandra home, the police said on Sunday.
The 34-year-old was last seen in Drive, and was renowned in the sports fraternity for the MS Dhoni biopic. He has also worked in films such as Kai Po Che, PK, and Detective Byomkesh Bakshy.
The film industry is known for its rigorous demands from newcomers as well as stars and many fall into depression, when they are unable to cope with it. Sushant’s death has raised more awareness about mental health with popular Bollywood and TV Celebs asking friends and fans to reach out for help. The death of the young actor has spotlighted the need for taking Mental Health seriously as a society, especially in these fraught times.
However, Sushant’s death has also sparked the issue of Nepotism in Bollywood which could be on of the reasons behind Sushant’s depression and taking such a drastic step. The fans of the late actor have slammed Karan Johar for being a torch bearer of Nepotsim in the industry.
An excerpt from Sushant’s interview has been circulating in social media where the actor had revealed that he wasn’t invited to the parties and left like a leftover.

In his tweet, Film Producer Shekhar Kapur too hinted that the industry people had let down a talented actor like Sushant.
I knew the pain you were going through. I knew the story of the people that let you down so bad that you would weep on my shoulder. I wish Iwas around the last 6 months. I wish you had reached out to me. What happened to you was their Karma. Not yours. #SushantSinghRajput

I won’t be seeing a new Dharma Production movie or any new #karanjohar movie in theatre. I won’t be watching any movie it if it’s under #Dharma banner. This whole nepotic toxic culture has to stop and we viewers will have to take stand#BoycottDharma #Toxicbollywood
