After the untimely demise of Sushant Singh Rajput, the industry has been split into two extremes. While on one side, people are blaming nepotism for destroying Sushant's life, others are involved in backing up the whole system. Kangana Ranaut who's known for calling a spade a spade recently revealed a shocking instance. The actress who's been the first one to stir the debate about nepotism said that she was once told she would meet the fate of suicide.
The Manikarnika actress said, "Once Javed Akhtar had called me to his house and told me that Rakesh Roshan and his family are very big people. If you don’t apologise to them, you will have nowhere to go. They will put you in jail, and eventually, the only path would be that of destruction…you will commit suicide. These were his words. Why did he think if I don’t apologise to Hrithik Roshan, I would have to commit suicide? He shouted and yelled at me. I was shaking in his house."
She further added, "Were there people calling Sushant? Were there people putting such thoughts into his mind? I have no idea, but obviously, he was in a similar situation. In his interviews, he had said that nepotism cannot co-exist with talent because they don’t allow the right talent to come up. I can relate to it, and hence I am raising questions. I want to know whoplayed the catalyst in this situation?"
She further stated that she has been through the worst experience of ganging up in Bollywood. "I know Sushant had a big fallout with Aditya Chopra also. When I refused Sultan, he had threatened he would never work with me. Ever since our industry ganged up on me. I remember so many times feeling really lonely and feeling what will happen to me… Why do these privileged people have the power to say that they will never work with someone? It’s your choice if you want or not to work with someone, but why announce it to the world, gang up and make this happen! [sic] These privileged lots need to be questioned. They have blood on their hands.They need to answer, and I am ready to go to any extent to expose these people becauseenough is enough!"
