Vidya Balan opens up on Nepotism and Sushant Singh Rajput’s Demise

Popular Bollywood actress Vidya Balan breaks her silence on Sushant Singh Rajput’s untimely demise at the age of 34. Late actor, who took his own life on June 14, should be left to rest in peace said Vidya Balan in an interview. She feels speculation over his death is unfair to his loved ones. One should leave his family to grieve over their loss.

In a recent interview with a news portal Vidya Balan said, “With Sushant Singh Rajput passing away, people who felt wronged, ignored, there was a sense of identification with him. Now the point is rightly or wrongly we do not know, because we do not know why he took the step he did. To show respect is to keep quiet. To speculate is… people can come up with all sorts of theories and that’s unfair to him more than anyone else, and his loved ones, who’re probably grieving.” She also added that no one can be blamed if Sushant decided to take his own life. So let him rest in peace, she requested.

On being questioned about her struggle in the industry, “I’ve been through ups and downs and I’ve had all sorts of experiences in the industry. I am not saying nepotism does not exist, but I didn’t let that stand in my way. That said, everyone is different. It’s a tumultuous time and it really helps to talk to someone.” she recounts.

Vidya Balan will soon be seen in the upcoming film Shakuntala Devi, directed by Anu Menon.
