I want to say something. I here all things about Bollywood celebrities. I dont understand is why drug issue so important all of sudden. You can't tell me it's first time someone died of drugs and depression in Bollywood. I hear about it all the time in Hollywood. Yes it's sad when someone does something wrong to themselves but it's not someones others fault all the time. I do feel bad for those family members who have to deal with what happen but won't bring them back. Just learn from those mistakes. Plus if you blame every actor or actress in the movies. The reality is no one will watch movies or want to be an actor if there a chance of being accuse of something again. I wouldn't want that to happen . I love Bollywood movies. They make feel happy and want to enjoy life even more so .please dont wreck Bollwood forever.

Shahrukh Khan and wife and family are peaceful citizens. They lead by example. They have earned their place in Bollywood through hard work and sacrifice.

What did Sayani do other than bullying a fellow actor?? What’s her contribution to the issue? Or her only contribution is twitter activism and she wants everyone to join in? Some people do real work.

Instead of shutting ourselves to all bad things we should very well keep our eyes and ears wide open to see good things, hear good things and speak out good things with our mouths wide open... Just a perception...

What did Sayani do for COVID victims? What did Shahrukh do? Talk is cheap, you can keep it Sayani. Some people believe in doing real work for some issues than posting non stop tweets about everything. They are making a bigger difference in the real world.
