Sushant Singh Rajput died by suicide on June 14 and was found in his Bandra residence. Ever since his tragic and untimely death, reports have been floating around the industry regarding the cause of his death with many people lashing out at star kids and nepotism in the industry.

Now, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut, in the party's editorial Saamana said that it would be wrong to blame the film industry and say that it is dominated by a few people. He added every industry be it cricket or politics, nepotism is everywhere one has to stand strong to survive and flourish.

"Sushant was is isolation for a few days. He was mentally not stable. 'Due to failure,' he committed suicide at his Bandra residence. This has exposed the mafia system and nepotism of Bollywood. Kangana Ranaut exposed the face of nepotism in Bollywood, Sonu Nigam also raised his voice over nepotism in the music industry. But point to be noted is that new people do come in this industry, they make a name for themself, only hard work is that matters here. The struggle is a part, people who stay and continue with their efforts, make a name for themselves," he said. 

Sanjay also lashed out at the coverage of Sushant's death and said that his death is being celebrated as a "festival". He also said that the "Sushant effects" must stop now or else suicide will soon become a trend.

Investigations into Sushant's tragic death are underway as Mumbai Police continues to review it.
