In connection with Sushant Singh Rajput's suicide, a case has been filed against eight Bollywood biggies including Salman Khan, Karan Johar, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Ekta Kapoor and others u/s 306, 109, 504 and 506 of Indian Penal Code, 1860.
The case has been filed by Advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha in Bihar's Muzaffarpur. In the complaint it is alleged that "Sushant Singh Rajput was removed from around 7 films and some of his films were not released. Such a situation was created which forced him totake the extreme step."
Interestingly, Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam has claimed that Sushant lost seven films, which he had signed. "He lost the films in just six months. Why? The film industry's ruthlessness works on a very different level. And that ruthlessness took the life of one talented person," Nirupam had tweeted. The 34-year-old actor was found dead in his Bandra apartment on June 14, 2020. Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh has assured that Mumbai Police will investigate professional rivalry in the suicide case. The Patna-born actor made his Bollywood debut with 'Kai Po Che'. The deceased actor played the lead roles in 'MS Dhoni: The Untold Story', Kedarnath and 'Chhichhore'. Following Sushant's shocking demise several film personalities, including Kangana Ranaut, Abhinav Kashyap, Prakash Raj and several others have opened up on the practice of nepotism in the film industry. While appealing to the government to launch a detailed probe into Sushant Singh Rajput's death, 'Dabangg' director Abhinav Kashyap has accused Salman Khan and family of sabotaging his film projects. While hitting out at the Khan family, he wrote "sharp, cunning and always attack me from the back and stay Hidden. But the best part is after 10 years, I know who my enemies are. Let it be known that they are Salim Khan, Salman Khan, Arbaaz Khan and Sohail Khan. There are many other small fry's but Salman Khan family is the head of this venomous serpant. They use a clever mix of their ill-gotten money, political clout and connections with the underworld to intimidate anyone and everyone". "Unfortunately truth is on my side and I am not going to give up like Sushant Singh Rajput. I refuse to cow down and will fight on till I see the end of either them or me. Enough tolerance. It's time to fight back."
