HYDERABAD: The death of Sushant Singh Rajput not only shook the entire film industry but it also opened a series of discussions. The topics range from 'Bollywood nepotism' to 'boycott all films of Khans and Karan Johar'. Many B-town celebs took to their micro-blogging site accounts to express their grief over the death of the 'Kai Po Che!' actor. Two celebs, Alia Bhatt and Karan Johar also posted their condolence messages on Twitter but Twitterati is calling their grief as fake tears and both of them have been placed under scrutiny by social media. A video clip of Karan Johar asking to rate three male stars, Sushant Singh Rajput, Ranveer Singh and Varun Dhawan in a 'Rapid Fire' session of an episode of 'Koffee With Karan' is going viral now. To the question, Alia Bhatt said, "Sushant Singh Rajput, who?". See how Sonam Kapoor answered to a question related to Sushant Singh Rajput on the same show. Here is the video.
#BollywoodBlockedSushant #aliabhat #karanjohar #SonamKapoor you guys were literally bullying him. He was talented educated hardworking guy. Shame on you guys. Always ranking him last in some stupid categories. 👎👎👎 pic.twitter.com/bdbvr7MImB— Ks Riya (@KsRiya2) June 16, 2020
Karan Johar is once again being accused of nepotism and favouring Bollywood insiders. Karan Johar was earlier involved in controversial conversations about nepotism and favouritism. It is all known knowledge that Kangana Ranaut called Karan Johar as the "flagbearer of nepotism" right on his 'Koffee With Karan' show. The 'Queen' of Bollywood took to her social media on Monday and slammed Bollywood before calling the death of Sushant a 'planned murder'.
Actor Koena Mitra also lashed out at producer Karan Johar. Speaking to a website, Koena said that, "Karan Johar does not have the license of this industry. It is shown as if he presents or rejects something then it is the ultimate thing. But no, the industry is an ocean and we are tiny little drops in it. He is also a drop in it. No one can decide who works and who should be rejected.”
Not only Sushant Singh Rajput's fans but also a few other Bollywood celebs have shared cryptic messages and indirectly spoke about the 'Bollywood Mafia'.
Shekhar Kapur tweeted as, "I knew the pain you were going through. I knew the story of the people that let you down so bad that you would weep on my shoulder. I wish I was around the last 6 months. I wish you had reached out to me. What happened to you was their Karma. Not yours"

As actors, somewhere deep down inside, we think we know why he did it & that’s why it so disturbing even if you didn’t know him at all.— Gulshan Devaiah (@gulshandevaiah) June 15, 2020

It’s no secret Sushant was going through very tough times for the last few years. No one in the industry stood up for him nor did they lend a helping hand. To tweet today is the biggest display of how shallow the industry really is. No one here is your friend. RIP ✨ pic.twitter.com/923qAM5DkD— 𝕓𝕦𝕞𝕓𝕒𝕚 𝕜𝕚 𝕣𝕒𝕟𝕚 (@sapnabhavnani) June 14, 2020
