In the complaint, I have alleged that Sushant Singh Rajput was removed from around seven films and some of his films were not released. Such a situation was created which forced him to take the extreme step: Advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha — ANI (@ANI) June 17, 2020
Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam had recently tweeted that Sushant lost seven films, which he had signed. “The film industry's ruthlessness works on a very different level. And that ruthlessness took the life of one talented person," Nirupam mentioned in the tweet. Read his tweet below
छिछोरे हिट होने के बाद #सुशांत_सिंह_राजपूत ने सात फिल्में साइन की थी। छह महीने में उसके हाथ से सारी फिल्में निकल गई थीं।क्यों ? फ़िल्म इंडस्ट्री की निष्ठुरता एक अलग लेवल पर काम करती है। इसी निष्ठुरता ने एक प्रतिभावान कलाकार को मार डाला। सुशांत को विनम्र श्रद्धांजलि!#RIPSushant — Sanjay Nirupam (@sanjaynirupam) June 14, 2020
Following the death of the 34-year-old actor, a number of celebrities have come out to speak up against the media industry.
Saif Ali Khan recently hit out at people who are "talking rubbish "on social media during the time of the tragedy. Khan further said that Bollywood is "famously competitive", and those pretending to care for Rajput was a sign of "ultimate hypocrisy" and an "insult" to the dead.
In a lengthy Facebook post, Dabangg director Abhinav Kashyap too drew links between the actor's death and the entertainment industry, stating, "I fear his death is just the tip of the iceberg just like the #metoo movement was for a much bigger malaise in Bollywood."

My appeal to the Government to launch a detailed investigation.
Rest in peace Sushant Singh Rajput… Om Shanti.. But...
Ranvir Shorey too spoke about the "inherited privilege" that the elite club of Bollywood enjoys and gets to decide who will be a star. He also went on speak about the “games they play, and their two facedness” and the “power they wield with zero accountability”.
Sushant Singh Rajput died by suicide in his Mumbai home on 14 June. Following his death, the actor's team confirmed the news with a statement that read, "It pains us to share that Sushant Singh Rajput is no longer with us. We request his fans to keep him in their thoughts and celebrate his life, and his work like they have done so far. We request media to help us maintain privacy at this moment of grief."
