Manoj Bajpayee on Sushant Singh's demise: We should celebrate his contributions, not discuss other aspects of his life

Sushant Singh Rajput's untimely demise has led to the questioning of various practices in Bollywood, for instance, Nepotism. While the public's outcry on social media regarding unfair treatment of Sushant goes a little overboard due to their emotions, some people say it's disrespecting the actor who wouldn't want people to remember him this way. Likewise, Family Man actor Manoj Bajpayee has a similar perspective to it. He told a leading website, "This is all we leave behind. We do all the hard work, we put in all our conviction, energy, we take in all the insult, criticism, rejection; for what? For the work that we do. And when we are not there and the other aspect of my life is discussed and that too is not a respectful manner it pains me. It still pains me whenever I come across an article talking about in such a negative way, talking about something which is not so important for us to know."
 
Manoj would rather celebrate Sushant's contribution than talk about other 'unimportant stuff'. "I would like to celebrate his contribution to cinema. At the age of 34, who else has contributed a great deal like him. Such a brilliant mind. I don't think I am anywhere close to Sushant in terms of his brilliance, in terms of his intelligence. I don't know anyone who invests so much money in buying an advanced telescope to gaze at stars. So many books he used to read on various subjects. I would like to talk about all these things. But right now, even while talking about his good things, I am like people will again take it differently," he added.
 
He also pointed out the media for over sensationalizing everything. "There is something wrong with our core values. It is disappointing me. I have seen it with other actors also who have passed away. This TRP chasing and the articles which are completely worthless just in the hope that it will get a lot of traffic. They keep showing and writing things. It somehow insults the word of humanity. We as a country, be it any religion, there is a timing for mourning. We do not mourn, we chase TRP. We do not have good things to say. Doesn't this say so much in terms of the value system? That disappoints me."
