‘Sushant Singh Rajput was getting film offers but he was not doing it, he was not shunned,’ says Sanjay Gupta

The tragic demise of Sushant Singh Rajput has sent shockwaves across the nation. While we are seeing CBI probe in SSR’s death case, popular filmmaker Sanjay Gupta has spoke about the late actor’s demise and said that he was a bankable star. Talking to E Times, “They welcomed me. I am also an outsider, I don’t have a family in the business. They have just made too much of an issue of this insider-outsider thing which is complete nonsense. It has been welcoming and there have hardly been any instances where everyone has ganged up and said let’s teach this guy a lesson or make him sit at home. Nobody does that. Right up to his death, may God bless his soul but he was getting film offers but he was not doing it and that was his choice. It was not that he was shunned.” Also Read – Trending Entertainment News Today – Rhea Chakraborty denies allegations, Disha Salian’s body was not found naked

He further stated, “He was a star. Sushant Singh Rajput was not someone, who was climbing the ladder actor, he could sell films on his name. He was a bankable star but what has happened is truly disgusting. Leave the boy and his family alone. We don’t need that spectacle on national television every day and you are right, there’s someone new coming out every day and discussing new. Who are these people and how do they matter? Where were they when Sushant was there and now they are coming out and speaking. Everyone’s looking at it from their point of view, their own perspective and how does it benefit their perspective. I don’t think, it’s out of any love for Sushant that they are coming forward and giving their views. Everyone’s washing their hands in it.” Also Read – Late Sushant Singh Rajput’s niece, Mallika, remembers her Gulshan mama as she enrols in Astronomy class

Yesterday after his passing, the official spokesperson of the family released an official statement urging people to stay at home and abide by the government directives to stay at home owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. “In this hour of personal loss, we also recognise the world is going through a very difficult and troubled time. There are numerous restrictions around movement and gathering in public. We would like to request all his fans and well-wishers and friends of the family to please respect the laws that are in force. He would not have it any other way,” a part of the statement read.

We must say, that’s a good way to fulfill his wish and be responsible.
