Sushant Singh Rajput ended his life on June 14 while some expressed their grief and heart-wrenching tributes on social media, there are some who are constantly targeting some Big Bollywood figure, sparked the nepotism debate and even started the blame game. Seeing so much going around on social media, Raveena Tandon spoke about the toxic star culture, favouritism in the film industry. She thinks that this is 'becoming a witch-hunt, a lynch mob, which is wrong.'
She was quoted saying by Hindustan Time, "People have to think rationally. It’s doing a great disservice to the poor boy who’s gone.” She even shed some light on people of the film industry who plan one's failure, to which she was quoted, “There are politics, I agree. And there are good people and there are bad people. This is what I had written in my tweet also. And there are bad people who do plan your failure; I’ve been through it. They are the ones who would want to see you down and removed from films. It’s literally like classroom politics. They play dirty games,” she says adding that, “But people like this are there in every industry. We’re in a high profile glamorous job and the competition is cut-throat, so it gets highlighted.”
She even revealed to the portal that she was appalled to see a Whatsapp forward doing the rounds, “Karan Johar intentionally made a bad film for Sushant, so he could ruin the actor’s career. Why would a producer pay an actor crores of rupees, sign him in his movie and then risk the rest of the crores in making a shitty film? Why would anyone invest so much money, time and mechanism to intentionally sabotage his own film? How absurd are these allegations!"
