Sushant Singh Rajput’s death has definitely turned out to be a thorn in the side for Bollywood, which first faced allegations of nepotism and has now come under the limelight once again due to a drug angle being exposed in the case.
The industry has been titled as a “murky den of substance abuse” and Bollywood actors seemed to have had enough by now.
The producers guild wrote an open letter standing in solidarity of the Hindi Film Industry.
The letter read, “The last few months have seen relentless attacks on the reputation of the Indian Film industry across all media. The tragic death of a promising young star has been used by some as a tool to defame and slander the film industry and its members. A picture has been painted of the industry as a terrible place for outsiders to aspire to; a place that treats those who date to enter it with contempt and derision; a murky den of substance abuse and criminality.”
The letter continues the same tone and stands in absolute solidarity with the spirit of the Indian Film industry. It also highlights that the industry generates employment for lakhs and has ‘welcomed and embraced talent from across the country’. Actors and actresses across the nation have shown their support with the Producer’s Guild. Some of the big names who have stood in solidarity with the Producer’s Guild are Kareena Kapoor Khan, Nimrat Kaur, Hansal Mehta, Bipasha Basu, Dia Mirza, and several more. They have shared this open letter on their social media handles, expressing their support towards the industry
