Nearly a month and a half since his alleged suicide in his posh Mumbai apartment, actor Sushant Singh Rajput continues to be the talk of the town. With questions being raised from multiple quarters about the manner of his death, his demise leaves many questions about how Bollywood functions still unanswered.
As pressure builds up on the police for a detailed investigation and as chorus for a CBI probe gathers steam nationwide, Sushant’s father K K Singandh registered an FIR against actress Rhea Chakraborty at Rajiv Nagar Police Station in Patna on Tuesday alleging that Rhea took money from Sushant and instigated him to commit suicide. Sushant and Rhea dated for a while before he was found hanging in his room on June 14.
And it’s just not Rhea who is under the scanner. Bollywood biggies including Mahesh Bhatt have already been summoned, Kangana Ranaut, who had spoken out against nepositsm in the film industry to suggest that Sushant was a victim of a malicious coterie, has also given her statement.
As more and more voices including the likes of A R Rehman and Resul Pookutty come out to support Kangana’s nepotism theory, the dark underbelly of Bollywood in rolling out the red carpet for star kids and treating others like Sushant as pariah stands exposed. The unholy star-ace director-producer-film critic nexus which works behind the scenes to strike at budding talent is the grim reality of Bollywood today.
Sushant’s death is an eye opener, a conscience call for Bollywood. It’s time industry biggies, many of whom have strategically chosen to keep mum on the tragic turn of events, speak up and break this unholy clique which makes and breaks careers in Bollywood, talent be damned.
