Sushant Singh Rajput Death: Ranvir Shorey On Aggravated Nepotism Debate After His Suicide, 'Dark Underbelly Of This Business Is Coming Out'
SSR’s sudden demise on June 14, 2020, shocked the entire nation. The young talented actor died by suicide at his Bandra abode in Mumbai. His fans and family are still mourning his death and can’t come to terms that the actor is no more. But his death has created a strong wave of nepotism in Bollywood and many actors are now coming up with their share of struggle. SSR’s Sonchiriya co-star Ranvir Shorey too has been vocal about his thoughts on this tragic death and how difficult it is for him to re-watch the movie Sonchiriya minus SSR.

But now Ranvir has spoken about the industry’s nepotistic nature. Ranvir feels people should come out in the open and hold the fort on the same. Speaking to Bollywoodlife. Shorey said, “As far as being vocal about what is going on right now in terms of the debate that's going around in the film industry, I definitely feel everybody should be vocal, not just one person. Everybody should speak their own truths, I have my own truths, my own experiences to share. I think with Sushant's death, a lot of the dark underbelly of this business is coming out into the light, and it should, you know. Because in any system, when there's an extreme amount of injustice and inequality, people need to speak out. you can't validate what's going on.”

He further added, "Now, with Sushant having passed away, that film has become something else. It'll be difficult for me to see Sonchiriya the same way as I used. It's very difficult to watch the film now." He further stated "Until what you worked on reached the audience and you get a reaction on that, I think the experience and the job is incomplete. You're right that Lootcase has had a couple of run-ins with coming out and then not being able to because of different circumstances (we had mentioned it in our question). But I'm glad that finally on the 31st people will get to see this joyride of a film, and I hope they're getting ready with their popcorn and enjoy it.”

He concluded saying, “In any comedy scene or situation, one person gets to do the laughs and the other gets to play the foil to it. So my role in Lootcase is more about playing foil to the comedy than doing the comedy itself., which is not to say that it makes the scenes any less funny. It's just to say that I won't be the one evoking the laughter, but I'll be there in the scenes. It is a tougher thing though, also because a lot of times it's difficult to control your own laughter when you're doing such scenes."
