Bollywood’s Two Facedness.
A wave of shock has engulfed the entire Bollywood and nation with sudden demise of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. Such a young and talented person is no more among us is hard to digest. Everyone’s heart is filled with grief and remorse.
Actor Ranvir Shorey in a series of tweets talks about Bollywood’s “two facedness”. He says that it is important to talk about those who have power in Bollywood to decide who will become a ‘star’.
“It wouldn’t be fair to blame someone for a step that he took himself. He was playing a high stakes game, where it’s win or lose it all. But something has to be said about the self appointed ‘gatekeepers of Bollywood.”
“Something has to be said about the games they play, and their two facedness. We need to say something about the power they wield with zero accountability. The power they derive from having inherited privilege in the business and the mainstream media sitting in their lap.”
“The power to decide who will be a “star” and who will be left out in the cold. But of course, the coterie that owns the only high stakes table in the casino will never be questioned. Because everyone is too busy enjoying the game. Even if they know it’s fixed.”
Kangana Ranaut Slams Bollywood.
Reacting on Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide, actress Kangana Ranaut slams Bollywood as well as the media. Kangana strongly takes a jibe at Bollywood for not giving Sushant his dues. She also slams media for projecting Sushant’s “weak mind” as a reason for his suicide.
“If celebrities are struggling with personal and mental health issues, the media should try and emphasize with them, rather than making it difficult for them,” says Kangana.
Kangana says that how can a person like Sushant who was rank holder have a “weak mind”. She vehemently criticizes Bollywood for not giving acknowledgement to the actor despite his great work in various movies.
Whatever may be the reason behind Sushant’s such drastic step, the truth today is that he is no more among us. Let’s take this depression seriously and talk about it. If you feel lonely, if you have suicidal thoughts, if you feel like giving up on life then talk to someone. Share your feelings and worries with your friends and family.
