Sushant Singh Rajput’s untimely demise on June 14, has left his family, fans and the industry in a state of shock and grief. The actor’s funeral took place in Mumbai on June 15 and few from the industry attended it. Sushant has made his place on the big as well as the small screen. The whole entertainment industry mourns the actor’s death.
Many celebrities paid their respects and condolences to the actor’s sudden demise on social media platforms, including Sidharth Shukla, who spoke about the actor’s death and the practice of nepotism in the industry in an interview with Bollywood Hungama. Sidharth mentioned that he couldn’t believe that a person who was so positive and an overachiever can take such a drastic step.
“I’m an acquaintance so we’ve met, we’ve partied a bit. But it’s not that we chatted on the phone or things like that. But whenever we met, we met very well and there’s never been a disconnect. We’ve connected, we bonded, we have spoken. It just was unbelievable because for a person who has achieved so much and is so young and for someone like him to take a step like that, of course for all the good reasons he could have had, one just feels really sad and it’s disappointing that life has passed just like that. There was so much more that the man could do.” Sidharth said.
Referring to the practice of nepotism in the industry the actor said, “If you talk about nepotism in Bollywood as such, you need to understand it’s not a government job. It’s one person putting some money in making one of his creations, he or she would want the person that he or she feels is best for the job. And also feels that he or she will be committed enough to finish the job.” He also added that he believes that nepotism is present everywhere in different forms.
Meanwhile, the police is not leaving any stone unturned in the investigation of Sushant’s death.
