Here are the tweets

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

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."
