Shekhar Suman has attacked the people from his own fraternity for being silent over the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who died of suicide on 14 July.
The TV host, who wants the death case of Sushant Singh Rajput to be handed over to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), tweeted, “Film parivar ke log chup hai maun hain, Ye jo nishabd baithe hain ye sab kaun hain, Sirf isliye ki jo chala gaya wo aapka saga nahin tha, Aapka apna bhai ya beta nahin tha, Sushant ke liye aage badhein aawaz uthayein, Yun dar ke na baithein usey nyay dilayein
(English translation: The film industry is silent. Who are these people who are silent? Simply because the one passed away was not one of your own, he was not your borhter or son… stepup and raise your voice for Sushant. Don’t be scared and keep quiet, help him get justice). [sic]”
On Sunday, Shekhar asked people to light a candle and say a silent prayer for the deceased on his one-month death anniversary. “On the morning of 14th july lets all light a diya,a candle and have a silent prayer on our lips for Sushant Singh Rajput who lit our lives with his presence n postivity in this world and shall remain in our hearts forever,” he tweeted.
