Actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death evoked accounts on cruel reality of Bollywood
The untimely death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput has shocked the entire nation. The police have confirmed that the actor’s death was prima facie a case of suicide. However, his death has reignited the discussions around the struggle of survival in Bollywood, with many insiders highlighting cruel and unforgiving nature of the industry, particularly on the outsiders.
His death has also questioned the existence of nepotism in Bollywood that really demotivates many young aspiring stars who wish to make their mark in the industry.
Popular actor-politician Prakash Raj took to Twitter to share an old video of Sushant Singh Rajput, in which he talks about nepotism. He also said how he managed to live through it in the past unlike Sushant and his wounds are still deep.
Prakash Raj wrote, “#nepotism I have lived through this .. I have survived … my wounds are deeper than my flesh ..but this child #SushantSinghRajput couldn’t.. will WE learn .. will WE really stand up and not let such dreams die #justasking (sic).”
As per latest reports, Sushant allegedly suffered from clinical depression because of professional rivalry. The theory finds resonance in the words of politician Sanjay Nirupam, whose tweet says Sushant lost seven films, which he had signed, even after the success of “Chhichhore”.
“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,” Nirupam posted.
Similar sentiment was echoed by filmmaker Anubhav Sinha, who, without taking names, said the ‘Bollywood Privilege Club’ must sit down and think hard.
#JusticeForSushantSinghRajput is now trending on twitter as SSR’s loyal fans want the ones who may have pushed Sushant towards depression to get exposed.
SSR topped the competition & scored an All India Rank of 7 in Delhi College of Engineering.

I don’t think any celebrity death has affected the people in our nation in recent times as much Sushant’s. People are finally opening up their eyes to how toxic the industry is, and many people are coming out with their stories. #JusticeForSushantSinghRajput

#JusticeForSushantSinghRajput His death has been impossible to get out from head. It seriously highlights everything that is wrong with society. The only silverlining is that almost everyone is taking this as a personal loss; which makes me hopeful for humanity. May it changes us
