It has been just over two months since the tragic and unexpected passing of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput and ever since his death, Bollywood has been embroiled in controversy surrounding his death. Blame has been ascertained on a number of industry bigwigs, with actress Kangana Ranaut blaming these leading industry members and calling them out for their apparent nepotism.
The Queen actor has made tall claims, saying that people like Karan Johar and Mahesh Bhatt ruined Sushant’s career and also called out a number of actors including Alia Bhatt, for nepotism and terming Taapsee Pannu and Swara Bhasker, ‘B-grade’ actors. Kangana Ranaut has been on a digital spree of naming everyone and there are very few who she hasn’t made mention of.
As officials commenced a probe into his death, Kangagna Ranaut went on record to make a point against nepotism in the industry. And now, it has surfaced that Sushant Singh Rajput’s family lawyer, Vikas Singh, has clearly stated that Kangana Ranaut’s statements hold no relevance in the course of this case and also explicitly stated that the FIR into SSR’s death was not ever aimed at anyone in particular from the industry.
“She’s trying to further her own agenda and attack people she has a personal issue with to settle her own scores. She seems to be on her own trip. The family’s FIR has nothing to do with her claims at all,” stated Vikas, calling her claims ‘unimportant’. SSR’s family had also earlier made this clear and had instead accused his girlfriend, Rhea Chakraborty, and her family of abetting Sushant’s death.
The lawyer went on to explain that some of Kangana’s statements were making sense, however, were not relevant to the case. “Everyone knows nepotism exists in the industry. Sushant too must have faced discrimination. But that can’t be the primary course of investigation in this case. Those can still be contributory factors, but the main case is on how Rhea and her gang tried to completely exploit and finish Sushant,” he said.
The probe into his death is still ongoing and we hope justice is served.
