Kangana also spoke of Sushant not receiving the kind of appreciation he should have for his films. Adding further, she said a film like ‘Gullyboy’ received so many awards when it did not deserve it and on the other hand, ‘Chhichore’ which was a critically appreciated film did not bag any award.
Sushant Singh Rajput was found hanging in his Bandra apartment on Sunday, June 14. His servant reportedly saw him in his room and informed the police. No suicide note was found in the apartment and the post mortem report has also confirmed his death by suicide.
