Mumbai: After the death of Sushant Singh Rajput, high profile personalities and netizens are openly talking about the ongoing nepotism and bullying in Bollywood.
People who claim of being victims are not staying shut anymore.
Initially, it was Abhinav Kashyap who took to social media and expressed his grief.
"My projects and career endeavors have been sabotaged, " he said.
Kashyap directly blamed Salman Khan and family for bullying and sabotaging his career.
"...the release of the film and got their PROs to run a sustained negative smear campaign against me and my film (Ranbir Kapoor starrer) Besharam before release….Over the next few years, all my projects and creative endeavors have been sabotaged and I have been repeatedly threatened with life and rape threats given to/for the female members of my family, " he added.
Abhinav tried filing an FIR but the police refused and filed a non-cognizable complaint instead.
Kashyap also mentioned that the YRF talent management agency that comes under scanner may have pushed Sushant over the edge.
"These people don’t make careers. They ruin your career and life. Having suffered personally for a decade, I can confidently say every Talent Manager and all Talent Management Agencies of Bollywood are a potential death Trap for Artists, " reads his Facebook post.
Also, comparing Sushant's issue to the #metoo movement, he even urged the Maharastra government to take up the detailed investigation.
Salim Khan mentioned he won't be wasting time on this whereas his son Arbaaz Khan seems to be in a mood for legal actions.
Today, it was Jiah Khan's mother, Rabia Khan whose daughter passed away in the year 2013 at the age of 25. She could not stop herself from pointing out bullying in Bollywood.
Suraj Pancholi her then-boyfriend was accused of her suicide.
She said, "I have to say that bullying is also kind of killing somebody. All these things that are happening that have reminded me, in 2015, when I went to meet a CBI officer, who had called me down from London, and he told me, ‘Please come, we’ve found some incriminating evidence.’ Then he said, “Salman Khan calls me every day and that he’s invested a lot of money, please don’t harass the boy, please don’t interrogate him, so what can we do madam?"
She added that she had taken the matter to higher officials. The usage of money in undermining deaths and investigation is toxic according to Rabia Khan.
