Celebrity publicist and Sushant Singh Rajput’s friend Rohini Iyer rubbished the narrative that nepotism drove the actor to suicide. “He didn’t need camps,” she said.
This weekend, the talented and promising Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput took his own life. The tragedy of his suicide brought on a wave of grief that enveloped his family, his friends, and the industry in which he worked. However, few people could have predicted that within 24 hours, the conversation around Rajput’s death would pivot from being focussed on the late actor, to an axe-grinding session where Bollywood would come under fire for its pervasive culture of nepotism, which some, like actress Kangana Ranaut among others, alleged led to Rajput’s suicide.
