Sushant Singh Rajput's sudden and tragic demise has re-ignited the nepotism and the insider-outsider debate. And also sparked many talks around favouritism and bullying in Bollywood! Many celebs from the Hindi film industry have shared their views on it.
Now, veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah, in a conversation with India Today Television, denied the presence of a 'movie mafia' in the Hindi film industry. When asked about the probe in Sushant Singh Rajput death case, the politics involved in it, and the coverage by certain media houses, Shah said that the people who have frustration in their mind towards the industry are 'vomiting it out to the press'.
In one of his statement, he even took a dig at actress Kangana Ranaut, calling her 'half-educated starlet. He said, "No one is interested in the opinions of some half-educated starlet who decides to take it upon herself to you know, get justice for Sushant. If there is justice that needs to be done, I think we need to have faith in the process of the law and if it is none of our business I think we should we should not concern ourselves with it."
Now, Kangana has reacted to his remarks and in a series of tweet she has given him a classy reply.
"Thank you Naseer ji, you weighed all my awards and achievements which non of my contemporaries have on the scale of nepotism,I am used to this but would you say this to me if I were Parkash Padukone/Anil Kapoor’s daughter ? (Slightly smiling face smiley)"
In another tweet she wrote: "Naseer ji is a great artist, itne mahan kalakar ki toh gaaliyaan bhi bhagwan ke parshad ki tareh hain,I rather watch amazing conversation we had about cinema and our craft last year and you told me how much you appreciate me... (Folded hands emoji)"
