Ram Gopal Varma says blaming Karan Johar for Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide is ridiculous

Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma has come to Karan Johar’s rescue and said that blaming him for Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide is ridiculous. It is human nature to give preference to family member or relative.

Ram Gopal Varma began with dynasty politics and tweeted, “How politicians like Mulayam, Uddhav etc give sons, relatives first preference ,Like how Dhirubhai will give all his monies to Mukesh ,Anil ,Like how all families will give their own families first preference similarly Bollywood families do same ..So where’s nepotism not there?”

Ram Gopal Varma said that it is not fare to blame Karan Johar for Sushant’s death. He wrote, “Blaming @karanjohar for what happened is ridiculous and just shows lack of understanding of how film industry works ..Even assuming Karan had a problem with Sushant it’s his choice of who he wants to work with,like its any film makers choice about who they want to work with.”

Talking about the debate on insider and outsider, Ram Gopal Varma tweeted, “If Sushant after 12 yrs of fame and money took his life becos he was made to feel like an outsider then a 100 actors suicides per day will be justified who couldn’t reach anywhere near Sushant. If u can’t b happy with what u have u will never be happy with whatever u have.Period!”

Ram Gopal Varma added, “Also all insiders of Bollywood were sometimes outsiders starting from @SrBachchan onwards ..@karanjohar is up there not because he is an insider but because his films are seen by millions..We all know as much failures coming from film families as much as from outside.”

The Satya director said that it is individual choice who he wants to work with. Ram Gopal Varma wrote, “No matter how many supposedly conspired to drive Sushant out (For what reason I can’t fathom when he can make money for them) there were umpteen others wanting to work with him. ..But like it was his choice not to do with them,it’s the others choice not to work with him.”

Ram Gopal Varma asked that there are hundreds of people who could not achieve what Sushant did. Whether they should they kill themselves. He wrote, “Bollywood is hard place becos people want to jump to grab stars and higher they jump the harder they are likely to fall. Sushant atleast grabbed the moon, but what about umpteen others who dint take off from ground.. Are they supposed to kill themselves blaming the universe?”

Ram Gopal Varma questioned the people who are blaming Karan Johar, “And for all the sound being made on social media about the super talented guy being sidelined the truth is it’s the people who are watching the other actors more than sushant and @Karanjohar couldn’t be holding a gun to the audiences head.”

He opined that Sushant would have become insider if he had worked for a couple of decades. He wrote, “And if Sushant hung on, then in about 15 or 20 years he would have become an insider when he’s launching his own son and some outsider Prashant would have blamed him like how everyone now is blaming @Karanjohar.”

Ram Gopal Varma said that audience will decide the success of an actor, but not an insider feeling. He wrote, “There’s no such thing as insiders and outsiders and it’s only audience who decide who they like and dont .. Film families however big they are can never have power to influence the audience and also don’t forget that @karanjohar is becos people made him big and not himself.”

RGV said that people, who are pointing out Karan Johar, are ignorant. He wrote, “Of the people who are venomously targeting @karanjohar partly they are outright ignorant of how things work in film industry and partly they  hate his success and are just taking advantage of poor Sushanth’s  death to vent their suppressed jealousy towards @karanjohar.”

Talking about nepotism in Bollywood, Ram Gopal Varma tweeted, “Nepotism spoken in a negative context is a joke because entire society is based on only a family loving concept ..Should @iamsrk launch someone unknown instead of Aryan just because someone is more talented (in whose view is the point?)”

Ram Gopal Varma asked, “Will any of the umpteen @karanjohar hating social media warriors chose anybody outside beyond their friends and families ??? It’s fundamental human nature to do only for the near and dear ones.”

Ram Gopal Varma concluded, “And for all the hue and cry about the super talent being suppressed I will take a bet that 48 hours before now for many many months there wasn’t a single social media comment demanding to see Sushant from all the millions who are now blaming @karanjohar for not showing him.”
