Manoj Bajpayee doubts if ‘anyone is mourning’ Sushant Singh Rajput; says, “TRP has become the focus now”
Sushant Singh Rajput passed away on June 14 allegedly by committing suicide at his Bandra residence. Post his death, there was a huge uproar everywhere asking justice for Sushant as many thought that he was forced to commit suicide. There were many theories from nepotism to movie mafia cornering him to mental lynching and whatnot. But eventually, hashtags that were used for the justice of Sushant changed and the entire matter seemed to have got diverted after the drug angle came to light. The entire narrative shifted to Rhea Chakraborty and her associates and currently, there has been mudslinging going on social media.
Manoj Bajpayee who has worked with Sushant in ‘Sonchiriya’ had earlier expressed his sadness on the sudden demise of the actor and now he is sad that people are more interested in TRPs now and Sushant is left behind as they busy with their own interests.
In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Manoj said, “Whatever is happening, I doubt anyone is mourning him. Because every hour, the topic of debate is changing. And it’s very sad, whatever I have seen in the last couple of months. I think we have all left Sushant behind in all this.”
He said, “They forgot to celebrate him. TRP has become the focus now. So that’s why I said that there are so many vested interests now, who would want to talk about how (Sushant) used to code? Right now, everything is focused on TRPs. I don’t watch television. Whatever I see, its on Twitter, on Instagram.”
