Sushant Singh Rajput’s untimely demise shocked the entire nation. But the said demise opened a discussion on the way the film industry functions. 


People are blaming Salman Khan and Karan Johar for allegedly running a ‘nepotism gang’ and negatively influencing a person’s career. In fact, news about big banners of the industry banning Sushant was also doing the rounds after the actor’s death. 

After the said incident, the 34-year-old’s fans and supporters in Patna, Bihar staged a protest march and burned the effigies of Bollywood’s big names amid the coronavirus pandemic.  

A video from Bihar is also circulating on the internet where angry protesters demanded a store owner to remove Salman Khan’s poster from his Being Human outlet.   

After the said protests against the prevailing nepotism, a picture showed how the poster of Salman Khan was removed from the outlet. 

Reportedly, a case has been registered under sections 306, 109, 504 & 506 of IPC in a court in Bihar’s Muzaffarpur against Salman Khan, Karan Johar, Sanjay Leela Bhansali and many others by advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha. He has alleged in his statement that Sushant was removed from as many as 7 films.
