Sushant Singh Rajput was reportedly battling depression over the past few months and was also undergoing treatment. His suicide has continued to send shockwaves through Bollywood celebrities and fans alike around the world. And, as expected, many fellow stars shared their grief and sorrow for Rajput online. However, not all are being well received.
Alia Bhatt, in particular, is facing criticism for her ‘fake condolence post’ for Rajput. Interestingly, one of Rajput’s tweets back in 2015 once again circulated, in which he was alluding to Bhatt.
Rajput had written, “It’s funny how people try to sabotage others’ projects for seemingly personal gains. These frivolous stories do make for a better script than yours.” He had posted it immediately after Bhatt chose to walk out of ‘Raabta’ (2017) and sign on to Karan Johar’s ‘Shuddhi’ (2017) instead alongside Varun Dhawan. As a result, Kriti Sanon was selected for ‘Raabta.’
Ever since the Rajput committed suicide, discussions about nepotism and its repercussions have become front and centre. #KaranJoharGang was soon trending and requests to banning his films gathered momentum.
Rajput’s Bollywood journey began when he landed a role in Abhishek Kapoor’s ‘Kai Po Che!’ (2013). Later, he went on to feature in a selection of films that also included ‘M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story’ (2016), which was praised by critics and fans alike. His last major outing was Netlfix’s ‘Drive’ (2019).
