Bollywood’s most talented actor, Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise took place on 14th June 2020 by a suicide. His suicide news sent shockwaves in Bollywood. According to the reports, Sushant was under depression since last 6 months. The actor took some anti-depressants for short period of time. Unfortunately, when things went out of his control, actor lost control over his mental being and chose to end it all himself.
However, this sudden demise of actor inadvertently gave rise to several tough questions for Bollywood. Thappad director Anubhav Sinha, producer Nikhil Dwivedi and hair stylist Sapna Bhavnani held a mirror in front of the glamour industry biggies and questioned their way of working.
Anubhav Sinha took his Twitter handle to tweet a statement for Bollywood and its nepotism. His tweet read, “The Bollywood Privilege Club must sit down and think hard tonight. PS- Now don’t ask me to elaborate any further.”
It seems that the director was pointing towards the time when Bollywood abandoned people when bad times befell on them.
The Bollywood Privilege Club must sit down and think hard tonight.
PS- Now don't ask me to elaborate any further.

Another user slammed Bollywood by saying, “Bollywood is all full of bullies, and they can’t accept an outsider. They can’t lend their hand to someone fighting for his survival”.
Among all those who were who were busy questioning Bollywood for its nepotism and hypocrisy, producer Nikhil Dwivedi also took his Twitter to speak on a topic.

R u in touch with Imran Khan, Abhay Deol &others? No! But u were, whn they were doing well.”

These harsh words were taken by author and screenplay writer Mushtaq Shiekh who said: “Totally agree with you Nikhil. The hypocrisy stinks..”
Sushant Singh Rajput’s hairstylist Sapna Moti Bhavnani also pointed Bollywood’s image by saying, “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 post about him today is the biggest display of how shallow the industry really is. No one here is your friend. RIP.”
