Sushant Singh Rajput’s death left the nation shocked and people are still reeling from the heartbreaking news. In the days following his demise, debates about nepotism and power play in Bollywood flooded social media. Kangana Ranaut bashed the film industry, and said Sushant’s death was a planned murder. She slammed Bollywood and said that Sushant’s work in Kai Po Che or other films like MS Dhoni: The Untold Story and Chhichhore, was not acknowledged. While her video went viral and most people agreed with her, a section of Twitterati dug up her old quotes wherein she had said that depression is a disease and when a person chooses to take a step like that, it’s irrelevant what made them do it.
A few years ago, back in 2013, Kangana Ranaut had defended Sooraj Pancholi after Jiah Khan’s death. Back then, Sooraj Pancholi was in jail for allegedly abetting Jiah Khan's suicide. It was then that Kangana had said that depression is a disease and that it can be triggered by just about anything. She had said that no one else can be blamed for that state of mind. IANS quoted her saying, “Depression is a disease which should be treated like one. When a person chooses to take a step like that it is irrelevant what made them do it. Depression could be triggered by anything. You can’t blame anyone else for that state of mind.”
Coming back to present, many Netizens noted that this old interview of Kangana Ranaut, and her comments, are in contrast to what she said about Sushant Singh’s demise, and called out her hypocrisy.
Sushant Singh Rajput’s last rites were performed on Monday at Pawan Hans Crematorium in Mumbai, while his ashes were immersed by his family in the Ganga river, in Patna yesterday.
