Amidst an intense social media outrage on nepotism in Bollywood following the tragic demise of Sushant Singh Rajput, Bollywood superstar Salman Khan has urged to his fans to stand with the late actor’s fans in this difficult time and recognise the pain that they were going through.
Emphasising that the ‘loss of a loved one is extremely painful’, Salman requested to his fans to support Sushant Singh Rajput`s fans and family and not go by ‘the language and the curses’.
When the news Sushant Singh Rajput came in, the 'Sultan' actor on his Twitter hand condole his death and wrote, "U will be missed ... #RIPSushant."
After Sushant Singh’s demis, several hashtags such as #JusticeForSushantSinghRajput, #BoycottSalmanKhan, #BoycottStarKids and #BoycottBollywood were making rounds of Twitter. Many people have alleged that the Kai Po Che actor was being discriminated against in the film industry as he was an ‘outsider’ and not a celebrity like Salman Khan or Karan Johar.
Meanwhile, Dabangg director Abhinav Kashyap on Facebook recently had claimed that his career was harmed by Salman Khan and his family.
He said, “All my projects and creative endeavours have been sabotaged and I have been repeatedly threatened with life and rape threats given to/for the female members of my family. The sustained gaslighting and bullying destroyed my mental health and that of my family and led to my divorce and breaking up of my family in 2017.” On the other side, Arbaaz Khan, brother of Salman Khan told Hindustan Times that they have begun legal proceedings against the director.
Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead in his residence in Bandra, Mumbai and no suicide note was recovered at his home, police had said.
