Sushant Singh's death: Twitter roasts Alia Bhatt, Karan Johar for 'double standards'
Stay tuned with 24 News HD Android App
The sudden demise of Actor Sushant Singh has triggered the Bollywood conversation about nepotism once again.
Karan Johar and Alia Bhatt were also among many Bollywood stars, who expressed their grief on social media.
However, their tweet did not go well with the netizens and they criticized them for mocking Sushant on the talk show in the past.
Many Twitter users roasted Alia and Karan for representing Bollywood nepotism, and hailed Kangana for being always openly critical of it.
Alia and Karan had shared condolence messages for Sushant on social media, in which they said they were devastated by the news of his suicide.
In an Instagram post, Karan said that he sensed at times that Sushant ‘may have needed people to share your life with’ but did not follow up on his instinct. He also blamed himself for not keeping in touch with him of late. Sushant starred in Karan’s production, Drive, which released on Netflix last year.
Sharing a picture of the two of them, Karan wrote, “I blame myself for not being in touch with you for the past year..... I have felt at times like you may have needed people to share your life with...but somehow I never followed up on that feeling...will never make that mistake again...we live in very energetic and noisy but still very isolated times ...some of us succumb to these silences and go within...we need to not just make relationships but also constantly nurture them…”
Alia tweeted: “I’m in a deep state of shock. No matter how much I think about it, I don’t have the words. I’m totally devastated. You’ve left us too soon. You will be missed by each and every one of us. My deepest condolences to Sushant’s family, loved ones, and his fans.”
Social media users have brought up an instance from when Alia appeared on the Koffee with Karan show and apparently joked about not knowing who Sushant was. In the episode, Alia was asked to rate three male actors in a Rapid Fire question - the choices were Sushant Singh Rajput, Ranveer Singh and Varun Dhawan. Bhatt said, "Sushant Singh Rajput, who?"
