Don’t use Sushant Singh Rajput as a reason to fight nepotism, says Irrfan Khan’s son Babil

Actor Sushant Singh Rajput, 34 sudden demise has left all of us in shock and with grief. Sushant took his life at his Carter Road apartment by hanging himself to the ceiling fan. He was found dead at around 12:30 in the afternoon of 14th June, ’20. Actor’s untimely demise has ignited debates and brawls on topics like favouritism, outsiders mistreatment, and nepotism across India. Fans are expressing their displeasure and discomfort over easy plattering to star kids in Film Industry.

Recently a netizen commenting told Irrfan’s son Babil to unfollow all the star kids. Babil humbly replied to the user and wrote, “@yashbansal2937 brother, do you understand the pressures and expectations of being the son of someone who changed the concept of acting in Indian cinema? I understand your frustration against nepotism, but there are two sides to every coin.”


Babil penned down a heartfelt post urging people not to take Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise as an opportunity to climb up on star kids and bash them for nepotism. He also asked to stop investigating on SSR’s death.

He posted picture of Irrfan and Sushant and wrote, “It’s still not settling in. We’ve lost two very sincere people and sincerity is key in our spiritual journey, thus it comes as an unbelievable shock, the way Sushant has departed. Naturally, we have descended into pinning the blame on something or someone, which in itself is the most futile act because to find peace by playing the blame game is not honest peace, it is a fleeting reflection of a lie. I urge you to not blame someone or something for this incredibly unfortunate happening, I urge you to accept that life is filled with leg spin deliveries bouncing off spin with no apparent explanation or understanding provided, I urge you to stop investigating the reason because it only brings more despair to the people intimately suffering the loss. Instead we must celebrate the evolution of these sincere men and let their wisdom manifest in our own journeys in some way, hoping to keep little lanterns of their memories ignited in our sensitive souls,” He further added, “I’m saying stand up for what’s right without using Sushant’s demise as an excuse, if you want to rebel against nepotism, do so, but don’t use Sushant as a reason to why you’re doing so now. Stand up for what’s right regardless anyway in any case. (And it would and should be my fight to prove to the audience that I deserve a shot.),”
