The film industry is in a grim state right now, as they are coming to terms with actor Sushant Singh Rajput‘s death by suicide. While a lot of them are mourning the loss of a friend and colleague, the audiences on social media are also lashing out at the industry folk for not being true and genuine with him in the past.
This has also led a lot of actors and members of the industry to come out and speak up against the many atrocities by the so-called ‘gatekeepers of Bollywood’. Amidst all this, in an interview with Times Of India, Saif Ali Khan came forward to speak about how the industry is very cut-throat and that most people don’t care about the rest. He says that people mourning Sushant’s death now, when they didn’t care about hime earlier, is hypocrisy at its best. He feels that silence in such situations is better than the ‘outpouring of love’.
Speaking about the way social media works, he says that it is a day and age where “people write 10 lines for you on Twitter and will walk past you on the street – won’t even touch you or shake your hand.” He also spoke about how it is manipulative to make this about Bollywood lobbies and games.
Talking about his daughter Sara Ali Khan‘s reaction, he says that she is extremely shocked and upset about it. She had worked with Sushant in her debut film, Kedarnath, and Saif mentions that she has always described him as an intelligent and good-looking guy.
