It’s not an ordinary day for the whole country, especially for the Bollywood fans when the news of Sushant Singh Rajput’s sudden demise came out. As if 2020 was not bad enough, Sushant’s death was necessary to increase our pain. Like the death of veteran actors Rishi Kapoor and Irfan Khan, his demise was normal, at least we thought initially. But what the entire nation can’t digest is that a 34-year-old promising actors national olympiad winner in mathematics, a former All India Engineering Entrance Examination topper who secured the seventh rank died of suicide.
To make matters worse, people started assuming financial difficulties, which is typical for Bollywood actors. Then again, Bollywood celebrities started showing their fake sympathies on the social media about how they care for him, how shocked they were, etc. Someone used Google images to show empathy by saying he was close to him. Another started the Depression theory like it is real, we should not ignore it, and after that, all the self-proclaimed psychiatrists from Bollywood started following her steps.
Everyone showed their crocodile tears in front of cameras/social media and talked about how Sushant was a depressed guy, and they are in a state of shock. But nobody was at his funeral apart from a few actors, and we were not surprised. That’s a different topic of discussion, and we all know how fake these celebrities are.
But what surprised me is the Mumbai Police investigation, which was beyond imagination. Yeah, I am talking about nepotism, bullying, and groupism, which has become a collective term for Bollywood audiences nowadays. And Mumbai Police started an investigation about nepotism (seriously?). Without an FIR, they began investigation from casting directors. We are yet to find anything even after months of their so-called investigation.
The case could be another Bollywood mystery had Mr K K Singh (Sushant’s father) continued his faith in Mumbai Police. The whole incident has been changed after his FIR in Bihar against Rhea Chakraborty, Sushant’s girlfriend. Every day the case is becoming murkier, but one thing is for sure, the big fishes involved in this murder won’t get any punishment.
His death caused a severe loss for his family and loyal fans, including me, but not for those who want to take advantage of this tragic incident. Not just the ruling Bihar Government, but every political party in the state find it an opportunity for the upcoming election. We all see how they tried to take credit for the CBI investigation after the Supreme Court order. The only person who should take credit for the CBI investigation is Mr Vikash Singh, lawyer of Mr K K Singh.
It is not about the Bihar election; it is about breaking the Maha Vikas Aghadi. It depends on the kind of backdoor deal the Maharashtra government is going to do with the BJP. Because the way the Maharashtra Government is opposing the CBI investigation shows that not all is well, and it encourages the BJP to force the Aghadi to surrender in front of the NDA. Maybe the deal has been done already and we are listening about the Dubai involvement.
No matter what, nobody will get punishment in this case. Forget about punishment; I doubt if their names will come in the CBI investigation at the beginning. In the best possible way, some small fishes who did field jobs in this murder will be prosecuted. Or the possibility of the Dubai angle is the best option, in my opinion.
We all know how the Indian media does its job seriously when it comes to reporting, especially sensitive issues. From the Arushi Talwar murder to 26/11 attack, and now Sushant Singh Rajput, we all see how the media is doing its job. Thanks to Times Now and Republic who are giving tough competition to their competitors. And other media are forcefully reporting this even though their reporting shows they have a lack of interest in this topic or their high commands order to do so.
It’s like a competition between Republic and Times Now, and other media houses are not up to their standards when it comes to sensationalising it. Times Now is coming with new evidence every other day, whereas Arnab doesn’t have the resources compared to his former colleagues. So his only power is his way of anchoring, and of course, no can beat him when it comes to entertainment.
I am not saying that Arnab is a B-grade journalist, and I am his fan due to his past journalism and the Sushant Singh case, where he continues to report when other media haven’t shown interest. But at the end of the day, he runs a media house that depends on the TRP and he decided to add some masala in his latest reporting. In their latest failed attempt, they invited a person who claimed to be the so-called eyewitness in Cooper Hospital and gave a clean chit to Rhea.
And Times Now is not behind in this case; they also started interviewing the so-called eyewitness. But people are not dumb and they quickly identified that person has a good relationship with the people whose names are coming in the Sushant murder case. We don’t know the truth and I am sure we won’t see the real culprits.
The matter is about form governments in two states, and the BJP won’t miss the opportunity at any cost considering the past humiliation they have faced in Maharashtra from both Shiv Sena and NCP. CBI, being the finest investigation agency of the country, will bear the insult of not closing the case. It is because their political masters will close the case after getting a good deal.
In case you have faith in Subramanian Swamy, I am sorry to say nothing will happen. We have seen the many past u-turns, and if you are expecting any miracle, I am sorry. Nobody is a saint, neither the accused nor those big names who pretend to care about Sushant from both sides. It happened in the past and will continue in the future.
We will continue to see the circus until there is a significant change in Maharashtra politics. Everyone considers this case to be an opportunity, and only Sushant’s family and loyal fans, Disha’s family, and we Indians are going to be cheated again. Just like Jiah Khan, no one is going to get justice and that is the bitter truth that we have to digest. I wish he gets justice.
