Post the demise of the 34-year-old Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, the debates around mental health and nepotism came back to social media. Now A case has been filed against 8 people from the Hindi Film Industry.
A section of people believed that Sushant was suffering from depression because of the rampant nepotism in the Hindi film industry. Some even took names and pinned the blame on the filmmaker Karan Johar. Along with Johar, another name that popped in the debate was of Superstar Salman Khan. Earlier reports of Salman Khan misbehaving or sabotaging the career of Sushant Singh Rajput surfaced on the internet as the superstar mourned the death of the actor. People even reminded him of the time when there was speculation that he sabotaged the career of Vivek Oberoi who was a rising star back then.
The social media has also pinned the cause of suicide on nepotism and has said that Sushant was cornered by the industry. There were also reports that he was removed from seven films in the last six months despite giving a massive hit in the form of Chhichhore. Now, as per the reports coming in from Bihar, a complaint has been filed in the suicide case of the actor.
