With multiple probes in Sushant Singh Rajput's case throwing up new revelations, millions of the late actor's fans have been rallying to speak out against nepotism and star kids. While the debate rages on, Shatrughan Sinha in a recent interview shared his thoughts on Karan Johar being made the target for all things wrong with Bollywood. Replying to this, Sinha said, "It is unfair and futile to blame Karan Johar for Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. First of all, who is Karan Johar to make or break careers? I don’t think he sees himself that way at all." 

Shatrughan further added, "I don’t think anyone can break your destiny. Jo kismet mein likha hai wohi hoga (You’ll get what’s written in your destiny). When I came to Mumbai from Patna, I just had a few hundred rupees in my pocket. I was determined to be an actor at any cost. I had to face a lot of insults. I never forgot them." He said that being born in a 'film family' doesn't automatically qualify a person for success. 

"Karan’s father (producer Yash Johar) was a lovely kind man. I worked with him. My daughter has worked with Karan. He has worked to get where he is. Being born in a film family doesn’t automatically qualify you for success. Likewise being an outsider doesn’t disqualify you from stardom. And Sushant was a very successful star," he said. 

Just a few weeks ago, Shatrughan Sinha had taken a dig at Karan Johar's chat show Koffee With Karan saying that 'planned events' like these cause controversies.

Hello. Shatrugan sinha. You and your daughter, Sonakshi, are friends with salman Khan and his family and with karan Johar. Even we outsiders know how much bulling Groupism outlasting and eliminating from Bollywood power he has. Karan is the don of Bollywood. So don’t preach us what you want to us to believe. It’s not the truth.

Baby penguin used his best friend KJo to write a fake sad post after his demise to promote the suicide notion after SSR demise. KJO then used his bully-wood connections to do the same. No wonder these people are so silent and promoting movies even after such significant developments. They never cared whether SSR was alive or not. They are all culprits. Pv if you are really impartial, you will post this. Boycott these dirty people audiences!

Karan taking potshots at people on his show asking them to rank people in terms of looks should put this photo out and ask people what they think. Disgusting fellow.

Even he did not kill sushant, i will never watch his films or shows after the KWK episodes and his journalist friend Masaand character assination of sushant labelling him as skirt chasers, womanizer.He is for sure involved in damaging his goodwill and bullying.Boycott him

Mr.shatru, your daughter couldn't handle the bullying online for a few days n she quit Twitter. Sushant couldn't handle the bullying for 8 years and he quit everything. Has karan offered to revive ur daughter's dead career that you are suddenly pro karan. Have you seen his koffee with karan, it could make the sanest person go crazy being rated n commented by idiots like Alia n Sonam. Please keep ur opinion to yourself n remain KAMOSH.

Sir, first you take care of your loud mouthed and arrogant daughter. Sincere request. We all know, who makes and breaks careers in bollywood. Even you know it but wont speak out because of the relations you share with those people.

Now everybody is coming out of their hole to protect the bully. He drove Sushant to an edge, now see how his films are going to flop miserably. Bloody idiot. Nautunki sala.

Everybody have a right to hire people whoever they want for their work, nobody is blaming you. Once the film is out the audience will decide the fate of the film. This gyaan is already known to everyone, we need no shatrugun sinha to teach us. nobody needsany advice from bollywood illiterates. whatever happening in bollywood is not nepotism, it is more than that. They are grouping against people, bullying them on their so called rubbish talk show, degrading by spreading rumurs writing articles so that they will be out of work. who gave the right to karan to do that? such an entitled brat who things bollywood is his dads asset to him. idiot! you nicely want us to forget everything because your mediocore daughter needs more chances. We might go and continue with our dailylifes hereafter, but will not forget to make all the bullies films a flop. Canot wait for it.

South African fan... Really Mr Sinha..... Ssr trained for 9 months for paani.... Not taking any other projects... Only to have the film shelved...... The space movie... He invested money went to nasa... Trained for the part and then the movie shelved.... And u say Nepotism does not existed... Really????? They engaged him in hopes... So that he wud not sign other movies.....if that's not purposefully ruining his career... Then u are blind

Can you explain to me why in chopra and johar productions it's always the same actors and actresses that we see, their films are shown at the cinema whereas when they are outsiders their films end up on platforms like Netflix etc? So yes chopra, johar and company have until now the power to decide who will be a star in Bollywood but since the murder of Sushant, things are changing...Thank God...
