It has been more than a month since the suicide of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput. Police are still investigating the matter and everyday there are new twist coming up. However, the exact cause of Sushant’s death is not yet clear. Meanwhile, the issue is being discussed everywhere from the traditional media via debates, interviews to social media. But senior actor Naseeruddin Shah has complained that the level of discussion is declining day by day.
When Film companion Anupama Chopra interviewed him and asked if he thinks the debate would bring about any real change, Naseer said, “One can only hope for that though the level of the debate is getting more and more juvenile and I see it as completely unnecessary. Why are we washing our dirty underwear in public? Why are actors who have been content now complaining they are not on posters? Why are actors who didn’t get a certain film complaining they didn’t get it? They didn’t get it. There are so many actors who didn’t get it. If everyone of us starts enumerating out complaints, the film industry will seem like the worst place on earth. And I daresay that is true of any industry. First of all I hope this poor Sushant is laid to rest and people just leave him alone.”
Naseeruddin Shah believes the ‘juvenile’ debate on Sushant Singh Rajput’s death will hurt the image of the entire bollywood industry.
A case was registered against Sushant’s girlfriend and actress Rhea Chakraborty at the Patna police station. After that, the issue came up again. In it, Sushant’s father’s lawyer Vikas Singh claimed that he had already informed the Mumbai police. He said, “Sushant is in the company of the wrong people.”
