'Bollywood killed Sushant,' claims late actor's sister Meetu Singh
Late actor Sushant Singh Rajput's sister Meetu Singh has taken a jibe at Bollywood and the recently released Brahmastra: Part One—Shiva on Instagram. She posted a photo of Rajput and wrote that "Bollywood killed [him] out of jealousy" and that the industry has "never shown respect and humility." In June 2020, Rajput passed away mysteriously at his Bandra flat in Mumbai, allegedly by suicide.
Why does this story matter?
- Rajput's tragic demise on June 14, 2020, shocked the nation.
- It also triggered a discussion on several topics such as nepotism, Bollywood's treatment of outsiders, the alleged rampant usage of drugs among actors, etc.
- Since then, Rajput's family, primarily his sisters, have been fighting for justice, even though the entire campaign has often also spiraled into a vitriolic, nasty blame game on social media.
'Sushant's Brahmastra is enough to destroy this Bollywood'
Singh posted, "Sushant's Brahmastra is enough to destroy this Bollywood." "Bollywood has always wanted to dictate the public, never stopping to show mutual respect [and] humility. How can we let people like this be the face of our country which is so rich in moral values?" To note, this was a dig at Brahmastra: Part One—Shiva, which has encountered boycott calls on social media.
