WHAT ARE ‘A’ LISTERS OF BOLLYWOOD DOING WHILE #SSRWARRIORS DEMAND JUSTICE?

The untimely & tragic demise of talented actor, Sushant Singh Rajput has sent a shock wave all across the globe. The young actor’s passing has sparked a nation-wide debate on nepotism, bullying and drug mafia in the underworld.

After the mandatory condolence tweets, there has been radio silence from the so-called ‘A’ listers of Bollywood. It is appalling that despite so much public outrage, the who’s who of Hindi cinema have remained quiet. They are neither speaking for nor against the issue.

On one hand, Sushant’s manager, Disha Salian’s death remains a mystery and, on the other, there are several speculations around Sushant’s tragic demise. Media reports suspect murder, money laundering and possible involvement of drug mafia in the entire issue. We have seen how the love of his life, Rhea Chakraborty, has taken up the stance of maligning Sushant by saying he was a drug addict. A lot more remains to be unfolded in this case.

Deepika’s last tweet was on July 19, 2020

Clever PR strategy to project himself as someone who cares about Indian citizens. Public memory may be short & people may forget his past wrongdoings. But Sushant fans will never forget his current mute mode.

Mahesh Bhatt’s last tweet was on July 29, 2020.

An extremely vocal Mahesh Bhatt has gone on mute mode ever since he has been in the eye of the storm. It’s surprising that unlike Alia, he has kept the comment section unlocked. It’s almost as if he wants to read every response from Sushant’s fans, taking no action or replying.

There’s something about the behaviour of the so-called ‘A’ listers of Hindi Cinema that leaves twang in the heart. Readers, I ask you, what would you do if your colleague dies under mysterious circumstances? Wouldn’t you raise a voice?

I don’t understand why the radio silence? Why is Kangana Ranaut the only one who has taken up the mantle of speaking for Sushant on behalf of Bollywood? Where are the self-proclaimed industry leaders & crusaders like Swara Bhaskar, Ashok Pandit, Javed Aktar, Anuraag Kashyap and others? Why are they quiet?

Why are A listers from Indian Cinema quiet on the Sushant Singh Rajput unnatural death case?

I gave this question a lot of thought and here are some reasons I came up with:

  • They fear controversy
  • They have better things to do
  • They feel it a non-issue
  • They believe they have better things to do
  • They are directly or indirectly involved
  • They are being advised by their PR agencies to keep quiet
  • They are being threatened by someone to maintain silence

Aren’t leaders of an industry supposed to take a stand? Is it not wrong that top voices of Hindi Cinema are silent on the Sushant Singh Rajput issue? #JusticeForSSR

Do you also feel that it’s high time that the top names in Hindi cinema come out to support Sushant Singh Rajput?

  1. I become so heartbroken to see such post by A lister stars of the industry on social media. I don’t to why they become so dumb and voiceless when it comes to SSR.

  2. The very fact that their active accounts are talking about everything other than Sushant proves that the so-called A-listers care a damn about anyone more than themselves and their image. None of them is clean and any kind of support will bring out the skeletons from their closet.

  3. There can be meany reasons for staying silent. Maybe they don’t want to interfere by giving out statements when case is in investigation. And if someone don’t know SSR personally how can they comment on the subject.

  4. Wow such a detailed post. True it is…. people always hide when it’s time to speak up n stand up for justice as they 1. Dont want to be involved in controversy, 2. Dont wanna take a stand or choose a side and be neutral. It’s the sad reality of not just film industry but every where…. be it home or office or any industry.

  5. Sorry to say, but if a blogger you met a couple of times (not an extremely close friend or family) is found hanged to death in her apartment, would you stop all your work and go find justice for her while you are unaware of the truth? I find it completely weird to be expecting SSR’s colleagues to leave everything and speak about something they have no clue about (unless they are like involved in his murder or something). After all Bollywood is work where people go there to build a career and make a living.

    1. I respect your view. However its a matter of debate. Wouldn’t expect fellow blogger to stand up for you if you are in trouble? I, for sure will be there for you and your family whenever you need me, despite my busy schedule. That’s what we do for each other…as members of the same fraternity.

  6. I don’t know why they all are keeping their mouth shut may be the reasons you have shared fear of their image and all but this is the time to stand by with their friend and colleague and above all with the truth

  7. This is the time when the industry should join hands and raise voice but they are doing just the opposite. What is the use of them being influential people if they are not ready to use their influence in spreading awareness and rase their voice. I truly respect kangana for doing so.
