Karan Johar and Alia Bhatt faced flak on social media for his or her condolence post for Sushant Singh Rajput. Netizens slammed them for his or her ‘hypocrisy’.

The filmmaker wrote that the actor’s death may be a “wake-up call” for him. He blamed himself for not being in-tuned with Rajput. KJo wrote, “I felt sometimes that you simply may have needed people to share your life with, but somehow I never followed abreast of that feeling. i will be able to never make that mistake again.”

KJo’s production, Drive (2019), starring Rajput, was stuck for over two years because he reportedly did not like the end product. Instead of a theatrical release, it was released digitally.

Netizens could not also digest Bhatt’s tweet, “I’m in a deep shock. You’ve left us too soon.”

They reminded her of her comment on Koffee with Karan. When she was asked to rate Rajput, Ranveer Singh and Varun Dhawan, Bhatt had retorted, “Sushant who?”

Now, questions are being raised about Bollywood being one big family, and about everyone having each other’s backs. Sushant Singh Rajput’s death has brought to everyone’s notice that all is not how it seems and how we need to listen more.

Saif Ali Khan, too, spoke about the outpouring of messages on Sushant’s demise. He stated, “Such terrible news about Sushant, such terrible news! It’s just awful.” There are numerous people who’ve made comments so quickly. And it just seems to me that folks are somewhere gaining some mileage from this poor fellow’s tragedy, you know, whether it’s to point out compassion or to point out interest or to point out some political stance.”
