While the political and social figures of India are in shock after the sudden suicide of Sushant Singh Rajput, there is also public outrage over his suicide. Following the actor's suicide, many have directly accused filmmakers and actors of conspiring to force Sushant Singh to commit suicide by pushing him towards mental distress.
And after such allegations, his suicide case has also become a movie mystery. On June 17, advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha had filed a case against eight Bollywood personalities, including Salman Khan, in a Bihar court in Muzaffarpur, declaring Sushant Singh's suicide a murder. On the other hand, Mumbai Police expanded the scope of the investigation into the suicide case of Sushant Singh Rajput and recorded the statements of a dozen people.
According to the Indian broadcaster Times Now, after the statements of his family members in the case of Sushant Singh Rajput's suicide, the process of recording the statements of his close ones was started. In this regard, the Mumbai Police also recorded the statement of the recent manager of Sushant Singh Rajput, who revealed that the actor was suffering from financial difficulties in the last days.
The report quoted police sources as saying that Sushant Singh Rajput had paid salaries to his cook and laundress three days before the suicide and also told them that he could not say anything about their future. According to the actor's manager, Sushant Singh was also in touch with his former manager Disha Salian, who committed suicide in the last days of his life, as she was trying to get him a job worth millions of rupees.
The actor's manager said that Desha Salian had assured Sushant Singh Rajput to play the lead role in a web series for Rs 140 million but unfortunately, she also committed suicide. Desha Salian allegedly committed suicide by jumping from the 14th floor of her residential building just two days before Sushant Singh Rajput. According to the police, contrary to the statement of Sushant Singh's manager, according to the actor's WhatsApp record, the last contact between Desha Salian and Sushant Singh was in March.
On the other hand, Sushant Singh's sisters and his parents also expressed ignorance about his financial difficulties and said that they had no such information. In addition, Sushant Singh's family also expressed ignorance about his depression. According to the Times of India, the Mumbai Police, while expanding the scope of their investigation into the suicide of Sushant Singh Rajput, also seized five diaries from his flat, while all the personalities living near the actor were summoned to the police station to record their statements.
In addition, the Indian Express reported that on June 18, actress Riya Chakraborty also reached Bandra police station and recorded her statement. While police have stepped up their investigation into Sushant Singh Rajput's suicide, on India's social media, people are accusing Bollywood celebrities of nepotism and disregard for newcomers. In the coming days, trends are being created on Twitter on issues like Sushant Singh's suicide and nepotism in Bollywood or rewarding well-known actors.
Many are blaming Sushant Singh's suicide on celebrities who reward the children of showbiz personalities instead of new actors from Bollywood culture and celebrities.
