Bollywood A-listers Mourn Sushant’s Death

As Bollywood mourned the death of the young actor, Twitter is reminding the fraternity of its treatment of the actor in the past. On Sunday, Twitter trended Karan Johar and Alia Bhatt. In an episode of the chat show Koffee With Karan, when asked about Sushant Singh Rajput, Alia Bhatt dismissed the actor by saying ‘Sushant Singh Rajput who?’. The Twitter users have repeatedly flagged this comment of the actress repeatedly especially after the actor expressed her condolences post the demise of the actor. Karan Johar, himself, came out and acknowledged his shortcomings as he wrote on Twitter,

“I blame myself for not being in touch with you for the past year….. I have felt at times like you may have needed people to share your life with…but somehow I never followed up on that feeling…will never make that mistake again.”


The Twitter users haunted Bollywood of its bullying and cornering of new talents sometimes in order to promote nepotism. When Salman Khan tweeted about Sushant’s death, people reminded him of his actions against Vivek Oberoi whose career saw a dent after his tussle with the star. Salman has been involved in such incidents in the past with respect to Aishwarya Rai, Ranbir Kapoor, and even singer Arijit Singh.

The users ruthlessly reminded Bollywood of its hypocrisy and complacency.
