Ranvir Shorey has spoken about the similarities to the facts surrounding Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
The popular actor has hit back at the Bhatt family after he was isolated following a “huge fallout”. He called out for a “detailed investigation” in Rajput’s case.
Speaking to Republic Media Network Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami on The Debate on Sushant case, Ranvir said, “We didn’t have facts when the news had come, but then the facts emerged that somebody close to him had passed away, that he was isolated and ostracised professionally. When it happens, your social life automatically suffers, because half of them want to be in the good books of the bigger powers, so will turn on you. As more facts came out, it sent down a chill down my spine because I had gone through the exact same thing between 2003-05, when I had a fallout with some of the ‘Bollywood gang’, as they call them.”
He added, “I had a huge fallout with the Bhatts and what followed, the facts are similar to that that are coming out with Susant’s death. The ostracisation, spreading of lies and rumours through press and media, or through the grapevine making you feel disoriented, a sense of doom. If such facts are coming out, I’m completely for your hastag #SpeakUpForSushant, that the industry leaders should take a serious view of the circumstances in which this happened.”
He continued, “If a concerted plan was created around him, a sense of doom, then obviously this is not just a ‘simple suicide’.”
There are calls for the CBI to get involved to investigate Rajput’s case. Currently the case is still in the hands of the Mumbai Police.
