While Bollywood struggles for survival amid the current Covid-19 scenario, Bollywood, ironically and unintentionally, remains one of the biggest newsmakers. Sushant Singh Rajput’s sad demise somehow sparked an unprecedented, vicious online trolling of Hindi film artists.

Arbaaz Khan who had been a victim of the same opened up about the vicious trolling faced by celebrities and its impact on their mental health as well as their careers.

In an interview with Indian Express Arbaaz Khan said that the allegations of ‘rampant drug use and sex’ appeared to be a part of a campaign and ‘instigated’. He added that the trolling was done by accounts with just one or two followers, as opposed to verified accounts with millions of followers.

“Up till now, there were only two professions that were held in the highest regard- cricket and acting. Cricketers and stars remained protected. Cricketers still enjoy that protection. But now what has happened is that stars have been demystified. It’s like, ‘Oh you think you can speak against the government, we will show you that even your stars are no saints and we will run them down.’ It’s a campaign. So, it’s said that there’s rampant drug use and sex in the industry. So, ‘let’s expose them’,” Arbaaz Khan told Indian Express. 

“This has been done intentionally because it can’t be that things have been happening for 100 years and in one year suddenly everything changed. It has been instigated, probably planned, and if you look at the people doing this they have one or two followers so they have actually opened the account to do this. It’s not that a person has six million followers or is verified and then they are trolling. This comes from a very unfounded scenario where it doesn’t matter if it’s true or not,” he added.

Last year, the Dabangg actor had approached the civil court with a defamation suit stating that a few people were using social media platforms, including Facebook and Twitter, to put up posts alleging his involvement in the deaths of Sushant and his former manager Disha Salian in June 2020.

Sanjana183 2 months ago He acts like the people who speak against bollywood are all ring wing supporters. So many apolitical people and many left wingers also dislike bollywood after Sushant's death. I have even heard some people of other countries decided to boycott bollywood so how can all this be a propaganda to defame bollywood?

Ktptalks 2 months ago Absolutely true... people are acting as if only actors used drugs. Its wrong for anyone to use. Even normal common people used drugs. Which is wrong. Its should not be used by anyone.
