Yes it’s true. Sushant Singh Rajput was literally tortured by Karan Johar and Yash Raj Films Production house since last 2 years. He was boycotted by almost everyone because he refused 1–2 films of YRF. Then he was removed from Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film and was also removed from Before (for which Ranveer Singh was eventually selected).
He was offered about 7 projects but because Bollywood hated him, since he was not a ‘star kid’ and was a TV actor, 6 of the projects were taken away from him so that he could only do Web series and TV serials! Even Salman Khan, the so called ‘bhai’ of Bollywood had banned Sushant from his production house.
Actors and actresses (barring few) used to make fun of him because he was a TV actor. Karan Johar had even said to him that “Bollywood is only for star kids and not for people like you”.
Sushant used to literally beg his fans to watch his movies because he knew that if he failed then receiving any new projects would be difficult for him unlike the ‘starkids’. Even in the Filmfare awards a film like ‘Gully Boy’ won all the awards and a film like Chhichhore, which was one of the best movies of 2019, had to go empty handed. Ananya Panday receiving the debut award clearly shows how beneficial it is to be a star kid.
Yesterday, when the news broke out about Sushant’s suicide, social media was flooded with sympathy and RIP comments. Many Bollywood stars also expressed sympathy through their posts but most of them were fake sympathies! Karan Johar, who made fun of Sushant, who rejected him from Bollywood and the one who is considered as the reason for Sushant’s suicide, also showed ‘fake’ sympathy.
But today at Sushant’s funeral, very few Bollywood celebrities were present. The celebrities include: Vivek Oberoi, Kriti Sanon, Shraddha Kapoor, Rhea Charaborty, Varun Sharma, Pooja Chopra and Raj Kumar Rao.
This is a clear proof that Bollywood only likes to promote star kids! For talented actors like Sushant it’s very difficult to survive in this biased industry!
