It was exactly a week ago, on Sunday, that the tragic news of Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise hit the internet, leaving everyone in shock. The Kedarnath actor hung himself to death after reportedly battling depression from the past few years. Ever since then, social media has been buzzing with a lot of debates and outrage over the existence of Nepotism in Bollywood. Amid the same, filmmaker Shashank Khaitan, followed by Sonakshi Sinha announced their decision of quitting Twitter due to all the negativity.
Now, jumping onto the bandwagon is Salman Khan’s brother-in-law Aayush Sharma, Zaheer Iqbal, Saqib Saleem and filmmaker Mudassar Aziz. Taking to their respective accounts, all of them opened on up their reason behind exiting the micro-blogging site. An excerpt from Salim’s note read, “Hey Twitter, when we met for the first time, you were a lovely. A great platform to express feelings, gather knowledge and understand many different points of view. But, of late you seem to have gotten lost in all the hate everyone is so ready to throw at each other, a place of bullies, a place where abusing people is a normal code of conduct."
Aayush Sharma, on the other hand, wrote, “280 characters are less to define a human being but 280 characters are more than enough to spread fake news, hatred and negativity. Didn't sign up for this nasty herd mentality... khudda hafiz.”
