Filmmaker Karan Johar’s close friend recently revealed that he is in a deep state of shock due to the heavy criticism that he has been receiving ever since the demise of Bollywood star Sushant Singh Rajput.
During an interaction with Bollywood Hungama, Karan’s friend revealed that the brutal hatred he received after Sushant’s death has left the Dharma productions head “shattered.”
For those unaware, Sushant’s death has sparked a heated debate about nepotism in the film industry, again. Several members of the film fraternity and netizens vented out their anger on selected celebrities after reports emerged that Sushant was let down by many people in Bollywood.
The internet is flooded with angry comments for the likes of Karan Johar, Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi Sinha, Sonam Kapoor and Salman Khan, among others.
“It’s the fact that those close to him are being attacked that makes Karan feel really guilty. His 3-year old twins are getting death threats. Somebody like Ananya Pandey who has no connection with Sushant had a hater on the social media platform asking her to commit suicide to compensate for Sushant’s death,” the friend added.
When asked if Karan intended to come out with any statement regarding Sushant, the friend said, “None at all. Lawyers’ advice. Better to keep mum. Karan is in no condition to speak. The fight has gone out of him. He looks like a man beaten by fate. It’s not a pleasant experience to speak to Karan. He breaks down and cries when we call him. He is constantly crying and asking what he has done to deserve this.”
Sushant Singh Rajput passed away on June 14 after he died by suicide.
