'I Regret not being there for you': Kangana Ranaut remembers Sushant Singh Rajput on his birthday

On late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s birthday on Thursday, Kangana Ranaut attacked big shots of Bollywood accusing them of trying to “ban” the former, who died by suicide last year, and alleged that “they collectively killed him.”

In a series of tweets, Ranaut, who has been taking potshots at the Bollywood industry, said that she regretted not being there for Rajput when he needed help. “Dear Sushant, movie mafia banned you bullied you and harassed you, many times on social media you aksed for help and I regret not being there for you. I wish I didn’t assume you are strong enough to handle mafia torture on your own. I wish ... Happy Birthday dear one #SushantDay,” she wrote on Twitter.

Taking a swipe at nepotism in the film industry and how attempts were made to bring down Rajput, Ranaut tweeted, “Never forget before his death Sushant wrote on his social media that movie mafia is trying to throw him out of film industry and seeked help from his followers in making his film a success. he complained about nepotism in his interviews. His blockbuster films were declared flop.”

This is not the first time that Ranaut has made these allegations. She had also targeted the Maharashtra government over the handling of Rajput’s death case by the Mumbai Police.

A related case of alleged drug racket in Bollywood also surfaced during the investigation by Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in connection with the actor’s death. The NCB also made dozens of arrests in the case.
