Nepotism debate has once again revived after the tragic death of Sushant Singh Rajput

Sushant Singh Rajput's shocking suicide has compelled Twitter to expose Bollywood mafia. The 34-year-old actor's fans want answers.



Twitter is shredding filmmaker Karan Johar and actress Alia Bhatt for having previously spoken dismissively about Mr Rajput on the show Koffee With Karan - both Mr Johar and Ms Bhatt posted tributes to Sushant Singh Rajput; Mr Johar also wrote a self-recriminatory note blaming himself for not having been in touch with Mr Rajput over the last year. "I'm in a deep state of shock," tweeted Alia Bhatt on Sunday, "You left us too soon." Karan Johar wrote in his tweet, "This is heart breaking. I have such strong memories of the times we shared."


On Twitter, both Karan Johar and Alia Bhatt are being censured for an episode of Koffee With Karan in which, asked to rate three male actors in a Rapid Fire question - the choices were Sushant Singh Rajput, Ranveer Singh and Varun Dhawan - Ms Bhatt said, "Sushant Singh Rajput, who?" This has been flagged several times in the comments thread on both Ms Bhatt's tweet and Karan Johar's.


Karan Johar is also once again being accused of nepotism and favouring Bollywood insiders over the likes of Sushant Singh Rajput, who belonged to a non-film background. Mr Johar has been previously involved in controversial conversations about nepotism and favouritism, notably when actress Kangana Ranaut called him the "flagbearer of nepotism" on Koffee With Karan. Mr Johar later chanted "Nepotism rocks" at the IIFA Awards, along with actors Varun Dhawan and Saif Ali Khan - all three have parents who worked in the film industry



Ironically Sushant's last film was NETFLIX original  Drive and it was produced by Dharma Productions. The film didn't do well at all and people trolled Sushant Singh Rajput for a bad choice. But tables have  turned suddenly the people have become sympathetic and the industry has once again become the evil.



Swara bhasker came for Karan's rescue

Sushant Singh Rajput's death has raised many questions on nepotism and how industry never welcomed him. Twitterati also started the trend to boycott Khans and Karan Johar. The 34-year-actor's last rites were performed on Monday and his ashes will be immersed in Patna's Ganges.
