In his editorial piece, he wrote, “We had shortlisted 2-3 actors for it. Sushant was one of them. But I was informed that despite being a talented actor he is not mentally stable right now. He is in depression. He behaves weirdly on the set that creates a problem for everyone. Some people in the industry say Sushant himself destroyed his career.”
The MP also claimed that the Chhichhore actor was in isolation for a few days and was ‘mentally not stable’. He further claimed, “Due to failure, he committed suicide at his Bandra residence. This has exposed the mafia system and nepotism of Bollywood.”
Calling Sushant’s death a ‘plain suicide’, he said that it was not a murder citing at his depression, movies he had in his kitty, his rent of the Bandra residence and cars are enough to prove that he was financially stable.
Speaking on celebrities voicing their opinion on the ongoing nepotism debate, he said, “Kangana Ranaut exposed the face of nepotism in Bollywood, Sonu Nigam also raised his voice. But point to be noted is that new people do come in this industry, they make a name for themself, only hard work is that matters here. The struggle is a part, people who stay and continue with their efforts, make a name for themselves.”
