Post Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise on 14th June 2020 there has been a constant discussion about the entertainment industry. Social media has also witnessed a war of words between Bollywood celebrities. Post Sushant's demise, Kangana Ranaut called out the award shows that never acknowledged his work. She called them out for not crediting his films like Chhichhore and stood up for the late actor. Kangana grabbed headlines with her statements on the industry and now, in an exclusive chat with Pinkvilla, she has opened up about nepotism and how it goes beyond films. 

It was Kangana who introduced many to the word ‘nepotism’ and after that, there was no looking back. “When I came into the films from the very beginning, I faced it, all of that, but I never thought it can be so fatal you know. In the beginning, I never had the idea of the graveness of it. I felt that it is one of those obstacles. Whether it is coming from a small village or not being able to speak English or having never seen films itself. There have been many challenges and I felt maybe nepotism is one of those that I can override and turn it into my favour and it wasn't always in play but it only became very toxic and life-threatening when I became the top star,” says Kangana.

She pauses for a while but chooses to continue, “That is the time I realised that it is not very difficult to be successful but to remain successful because of the competition. People who will even get you killed to get your place will go to any lengths and I do feel that nepotism in our industry has become very toxic in this generation. Earlier the way the country was, most people were self-made. People were very poor. Even the stories that our parents tell us. Privileged people are very few and far. There were of course but now with the kind of society we are in, the kind of industry we are in, 90% of the people kind of belong to film families. They are either friends or they are from the close-knit circle.”

Kangana confesses that she wanted to bring awareness about such issues and not fight. “Honestly, I do feel like I started a premature talk on it. When I spoke to Karan about it, I was just kind of teasing him, pulling his leg. Had I known these people are so dangerous, had I known it would cause death, had I known it is not just something to joke about or tease about, it is just not something about snatching films. It is not only about films, it is also about vengeance, the sadism of the human psyche. I had not done it or taken it so lightly because I think I took it lightly then I was attacked in a way that they went for me. They tried to put criminal cases on me, they tried to sabotage my brands, and my films and my whole brand came crashing before Manikarnika. I think that discouraged Sushant in a huge way who was supporting me and then this is what happened. I think I should have known the graveness of it and even what happened has discouraged many and it just became movie, film gossip and nepotism. Nothing concrete came out of my first attempt to bring awareness. I tried to bring awareness and not fight it. But this time around what has happened has shaken me and to be honest, I cannot stop feeling bad about it especially because he has been complaining about bullying and you cannot not see it you know, so I think I would have been more prepared. I don't feel great about it but this just is how it happened and I wish we could have saved that life. Someone had written about it," adds the actress. 

“People must have seen that nasty video where Karan Johar is asking me to get out of the film industry and somebody said that had somebody told him, stopped him and questioned him then and there had it not been such a huge applaud and roaring response from the audience, we would have saved Sushant. I too believe in that, it's nothing but true but I think we as a society failed,” she asserts.

Jayalalitha was herself a product of nepotism. Jaya ji's mother was an actress, and she got into movies because of her mother. Then into politics because of MGR - all due to nepotism. I hope in Kangana's movie on Jaya ji's biopic will show this message or disclaimer that Jalaylalitha was a product of nepotism and Kangana Ranaut does not endorse it.

Now everyone is praising KanganaRanaut for calling out nepotism, I want everyone to see the video where she said that it was her perogative as a director of manikarnika to cut the roles of chote mote actors ( its not the airport one and its more than just one interview) i think you may find links to it in either anurag kashyaps twitter account or tapsees as some people supporting him have linked it there. What is the difference between her and Kjo? If it was her prerogative as a director to cut roles of co-stars, why is she now blaming others for doing the same thing that she did.

SSR was diagnosed with depression, and we sorely miss him. The sad and unfortunate fact is that SSR's problems may have been exacerbated by the CORONAVIRUS lockdown. Moreover, Kangana is trying to re-shape the narrative by not addressing any of these types of mental health issues. I believe she is straying into a full-on-battle with Bollywood, of which she will lose. She needs to chill-out, take her meds, and focus on Acting...

She is brave, fearless and a woman that India should be proud of. Gutsy and beautiful! It is because of her Sushant’s case is in limelight and she has raised pertinent questions. There is hope for justice now. Sushant’s voice was stiff led but they cannot shut all of us down.

The differences between Kangana and sushant is; sushant was not flop actor. He gave back to back hits. He had no sugarmommy, no godfathers, no influencial gf's or affiliation with bjp heavy weights to produce his films. He was respectful and dignified man. Sushant came to bollywood based on merit. He struggled unlike some ppl with sugardaddy. Sushant representated the real India. The underdog who worked so hard and was at the top of his game. At the end we have to be honest with ourselves. I dont know how sushant died but Bollywood is part of society that ridicule and belittle mentally ill people. People with severe depression have suicidal thoughts and psychosis episode. If you dont take medication things can get worse. Kangana is trying her best to get more PR for her failed career and now she is using sushant's death. Rest in peace S
