Sushant Singh Rajput’s tragic death has also given rise to a lot of heated debates and controversies. Among others is the recent flak against nepotism in the Bollywood film industry. Arjun Kapoor is the latest celeb to be the target of trolls after a five-year old tweet posted by Chetan Bhagat went viral on social media in which it was mentioned that Sushant was roped in to play the male lead in Mohit Suri’s Half Girlfriend co-starring Shraddha Kapoor.

As a result of this, Arjun received a lot of hatred on the part of the netizens for replacing Sushant in the movie as a result of the nepotism flare. However, a few old interviews of the MS Dhoni star conclude that Arjun Kapoor was not the reason behind his exit from Half Girlfriend. Sushant himself had revealed that he had opted out of Half Girlfriend as he had already signed another movie (Raabta) with Dinesh Vijan.

The actor, in fact, had also mentioned that he did not walk out of Half Girlfriend but instead chose to do Raabta. In an interview with the Mumbai Mirror, Sushant said, “It's unfortunate. I was excited about working with Ekta (Kapoor) again but the dates didn't work out. The team wanted the same dates as that of Dinu's (Dinesh Vijan) film, which I'm doing next. Since I had committed dates for it long ago, I didn't have an option but to pull out of Mohit's project." 

In yet another interview, Sushant revealed how he lost out on 12 movies once because of two movies which he was already doing back then. Talking about Half Girlfriend and Raabta, the actor had added that there was a confusion because of someone else as they were told that they could shoot both the movies simultaneously. But the case turned out to be entirely different and both directors wanted a particular month because of which the actor had to choose Raabta over Half Girlfriend.

Sushant was very naive. He could not cheat or fraud people. He was played around tragically by all these actors , actresses, Ditectors and producers . During this time of Covid 19 lockdown looks he thought a lot about how he was bullied, mocked , cheated both in his career and personal life. He felt like he had no future and nobody cared for him. He felt that there will be no end to his pain and suffering. Nobody from Bollywood reached out to him during his difficult moments. This is what is so inhumane about Bollywood.

Dear flag bearer, See, the public sentiment is still high. Just give up and go back to being the humble person you were during kuch kuch hota hai when you were a nobody and we put you on a pedestal admiring your straight from the heart work. Stop b**** about people. Take a pledge to give good roles to outsiders without exploitating them (MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY Ofcourse). Stop holding grudges- your own and on other friends' behalf. Pay attention to parenting, go back to nurturing good writers, good scripts like a parent, do the good work your father stood for. Make your mother actually proud. BE A ROLE MODEL for your children. Habits die hard. Start now. It's now or never. You can start fresh and undo all your wrongs. Don't feel guilty after a person is dead. Yours Truly, Just another person

Arjun is a non entity surviving only because of nepotism. He doesnt have looks, stardom or acting talent. We dont need your excuses. Even if you didnt know (unlikely), he was the first choice.

I have Pledged not to watch movies made by following people. Justice for Sushant. Justice for our sanity. BOYCOTT FOR EVER. Karan Johar or Dharma Production Aditya Chopra Or YRF Bhatt Camp. Mahesh, Mukesh, Pooja, Kapoors. Ekta Kapoor Salman Khan all these people are responsible for ruining Sushant career, insulting him, black listing him making fun of him. Do they deserve our time, attention and money ? Do not forget 6 months or year from now Boycott filthy Bollywood it is time to clean up we do not want history to repeat and do not loose any more Sushant.

It’s extremely sad what happened to SSR. One of the brightest star , actor, kalakar of Bollywood but at the same time it’s also true that because of his date issues most of the movies he missed. So people need to blame the production houses. Why attacking actors? If they got an opportunity what they supposed to do? Be saint and sacrifice their career for their competitors? All are same age. This is strange. 10 years back no one knows that 2020 we all have to see this heart breaking incident. RIP SSR.

Sushants statement shows how arjun did not get the role due to nepotism but sushants date issues. Twitter gives instant justice without full facts.

SSR would have done a better job. Arjun and his dead squid acting is painful to watch. Especially so in his role as Madhav. He does better in the usual punjabi launda acts.
