While many mourned and expressed condolences on Sushant Singh Rajput’s tragic death by suicide, a few actors chose not to post anything on social media. Vidyut Jammwal is one of them.
This triggered a fan to ask, “Hey Vidyut, why no tweet for Sushant”. Responding to him, vidyut wrote, “Silence speaks volumes if you stop & listen. Absent tears/ inability to write heartfelt eulogies and remembrances could also be a way of expressing grief, Neither the departed soul nor the family is reading the Tweets, so who to write for? We all grieve and mourn- I do it quietly.” Rajput was found dead in his Bandra apartment on Sunday. He was 34.
Earlier, Saif Ali Khan slammed the sudden outpouring of love and concern for Sushant, and called it the ‘ultimate hypocrisy. “There are so many people who’ve made comments so quickly. And it just seems to me that people are somewhere gaining some mileage from this poor fellow’s tragedy, you know, whether it’s to show compassion or to show interest or to show some political stance. So many people are talking rubbish in this nonstop kind of barrage on social media and it’s just embarrassing, really, I think,” he said in a interview.
Sushant Singh Rajput died due to hanging, his post-mortem report confirmed, after he was found dead at his home in Bandra, Mumbai. The Chhichhore star’s last rites were held at a Vile Parle Crematorium on Monday. Apart from grief and shock over his death, there have been controversies over industry bigwigs allegedly ‘boycotting’ him, the nepotism debate, and the demand for a probe from fans, relatives, and politicians.
Officially statement from sushant’s team is “It pains us to share that Sushant Singh Rajput is no longer with us. We request his fans to keep him in their thoughts and celebrate his life, and his work like they have done so far. We request media to help us maintain privacy at this moment of grief”.
