Here is how many followers Alia Bhatt and Karan Johar lost after Sushant Singh’s demise.
After the news of Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise broke, people started questioning the prominent figures of Bollywood and sparked up a debate on nepotism. Karan Johar was called out for not giving Sushant well-deserved appreciation and people were furious to know that the actor lost so many projects in the span of 6 months.
Some actors came forward and shared how nepotism can affect an actor’s career in Bollywood and Alia Bhatt, Sonam Kapoor, Salman Khan, and Karan Johar were at the receiving end of this backlash.
I knew the pain you were going through. I knew the story of the people that let you down so bad that you would weep on my shoulder. I wish Iwas around the last 6 months. I wish you had reached out to me. What happened to you was their Karma. Not yours. #SushantSinghRajput

There are many young ‘outsiders’ in this industry. Remember this – there is an establishment that will make you feel like the next big thing until they need you. They will drop you and mock you as soon as you falter. Do not fall for the trap. The ones that celebrate you…

Young actors are shaken, including me. In a manner and degree that is a little unexpected and unexplained. I can feel it in my bones and flesh, I have seen it in the eyes of the few people I have seen since yesterday, I have heard it in the voices of friends I have spoken to.
