Amid the case investigation of Sushant Singh Rajput, the entire Bollywood has come under scanner as the Narcotics Control Bureau discovered some drug links after Rhea Chakraborty's arrest. Amid this, several people spoke about the drug nexus in Bollywood and accused many stars of using them. Amid this, Anurag Kashyap has spoken about how Bollywood has come under the scanner suddenly and is apparently being used as a distraction by the government amid real issues like COVID-19, unemployment, Border crisis and more. 

In a chat with Faye D'Souza, Anurag was quizzed about whether Bollywood is being targetted or being used as a distraction. He replied and said that initially it was being used. He alleged that what happened with Sushant is unfortunate and that everything that was built around his death went out of hand. He claimed that the government got a welcome distraction in his demise but said that it went out of their hand. He alleged that they started with 'who murdered Sushant Singh Rajput' and then connected his death with Disha Salian and tried to build a narrative around. He asked 'where has the distraction gone now?' 

Further, he said that Justice for Sushant is now a drug scandal. He said that it has become justice for Kangana now and distraction keeps shifting. While talking about Sushant's family, he said that the same family was earlier saying that Kangana was serving her own purpose. He claimed that now, their lawyer has disappeared. The filmmaker questioned why are people not talking about the real issues. Further, he claimed that government wants distraction for people from real questions like the economy, unemployment, border issues, COVID-19 and more. He claimed that they just want to focus on Bollywood. 

What is this narrative being built? Why is no one questioning it? Why is everyone parroting it? Where are the real questions? This is the narrative being built.

He quipped, "If you are not asking for justice for Sushant, you are a traitor in this country. How? If you are not saying Rhea is the woman to be blamed, you are a traitor. You're a desh drohi. What is this narrative being built? Why is no one questioning it? Why is everyone parroting it? Where are the real questions? This is the narrative being built." He said that the purpose of NCB is to stop the distribution of drugs and not go after somebody who is using small amounts for personal consumption. He further alleged that all government departments like ED, NCB and more are serving the government's purpose of either distraction or suppressing dissent. 

The filmmaker has been voicing his opinion on his Twitter handle about several issues related to the economy. Recently, he even exchanged a few tweets with Kangana Ranaut where he asked the actress to go fight on the border of China. The actress also responded back to him and a debate ensued on Twitter.

Anurag Kashyap.... The world is in financial crisis due to COVID 19. There are burning issues in countries affected by the Pandemic. So do not single out the ruling party because of your bigotry. May be you should talk to Rahul and Sonia Gandhi to get India out of this ongoing Pandemic . These 2 are sitting in NYC while they and their relatives looted India and misled Indians for half a century !

Justice for sushant is a drug scandal because drug peddlers are allegedly in his murder. CBI thinks there is a link . Let them investigate. If Anurag thinks this issue is not worth talking about why does he keep ranting about it all the time. Why dont YOU focus on other issues. Fact is they want others to stop commenting so that they can brain wash the public with their mental illness and suicide angle.

No one make a statement on farmers suicide rate,daily wagers suicide rate,on unemployment,on gdp,on banking sector,on uncontrolled privitisation(ambani/Adani),on china faceoff and land encroached by china,on various global indexes,on covid 19 daily cases and deaths,peoples are dying cause of hunger. Bjp pressed pumplets in bihar for publicity in election like hum nhi bhulenge.

For these people justice for Sushant means putting Rhea in jail for some or other reason. Doesnt matter if she is guilty or not. When they did not find anything now it is drugs. Indian sheeple!

what's sad it took one death to reveal bollywood true side, sushant was sacrificed for us to reach the truth and why we should never idolize celebrities.It's evident they are afraid now, they thought the case will shut down and they can continue their trafficking but sushant is god child,god will not leave anyone.They thought they can enjoy dirty money for long and karma does not exist!Karma took long but it does shows up.

ED, CBI, NCB can summon the whole universe & submit reports. But all will come up with nothing against Rhea or the rest. As there is indeed nothing. There is no proof of her laundering money. And the minuscule quantity of marijuana found on one of the peddlers is still disputed. Except that according to NCB, Rhea & the rest procured drugs for SSR. Ergo he is the user, and that makes him the prime accused. If he was alive, he would be the first one to go to jail. SSR was a grown up man who was hooked on to drugs & people cannot come to terms with his sudden death. BJP is using SSR's death, his family & Kangana as tools for political gain. Rhea hid SSR's drug habits from all & atleast gave him some dignity in death. Until the family came out after 40 days to demand money & somehow convict her. More importantly, his family hid his mental illness & a sister illegally prescribed dangerous medicines during his last days. The investigation & opinion has turned into a lynch fest for Rhea & the rest. India loves mob justice. No matter how modern Indians pretend to be, they are worse than the Taliban & are incapable of thinking with common sense & logic. Indians are the biggest herd of sheep in the world currently being diverted from the free-falling economy, rising COVID cases, unemployment , farmers & the migrant crisis. Vote wisely next time India.

India has woken up from being the sheeple they were under Khangress rule! For 70 years they bled the country dry with their minority and dynasty politics, pappu the current mama's boy is a charsi through and through, a frequent visitor to Thailand, have you seen how haggard he looks lately? India will never vote for them again if we are smart! PV post!

Oh man justice for Sushant is taking over your whole life. Get some perspective and ahold of the bigger picture. Nobody forced anybody to do drugs. It’s a problem faced in the whole world. But don’t see other countries ignoring pandemic, issues of unemployment, instability in economy just to fight drugs and so-called movie mafia! It happens only in India.
