It came as a major shock when news broke out about the young and talented Sushant Singh Rajput's death by suicide. Thousands of his fans and people across the nation were left in extreme grief over the 34-year-old actor's untimely demise. However, it set off quite a few speculations over his death with many people stating his depression to be the main reason behind such a drastic decision. Actress Kangana Ranaut has constantly releasing statements about nepotism in Bollywood and how Sushant was treated by the big sharks in the industry. She had earlier released a video in which she has lashed out at those questioning Sushant's mental state, by asking how somebody who was an exceptional scholar and who could secure a scholarship to Stanford University is considered as mentally weak. She then went on to question why his performance in Kai Po Che was not acknowledged by anybody. Kangna further went on to ask how could a movie like Gully Boy win so many awards when Sushant's terrific performances in movies like MS Dhoni: The Untold Story and Chhichhore go unnoticed. She even referenced one of Sushant's earlier speeches where he appealed to the people to go watch his movies as he did not have a godfather within the industry. 
Now Sushant Singh Rajput's friend Samuel Haokip took to Instagram and alleged that Sara Ali Khan broke up with the late actor after Sonchiriya flopped. In his statement, Samuel Haokip says - "I remember the time during Kedarnath promotions... Sushant and Sara were totally in love...they were pure and childlike innocence. They both had tremendous respect for each other which was so rare to see nowadays in relationships. Sara along with Sushant had genuine respect for everyone in Sushant's it family, friends and even staff. I wonder whether Sara's decision to break up with Sushant right after Sonchiriya's box office performance was due to any pressure by the Bollywood mafia." Kagana Ranaut has something spicy to comment even about this issue now. Her Twitter post reads - “News of SSR and Sara affair was all over the media, apparently they were even sharing a room during their outdoor, why these fancy Nepotism kids show dreams to vulnerable outsiders and then publicly dump them? No wonder he fell for a vulture post that.” It must be noted that Sara Ali Khan is the daughter of actors Amrita Singh and Saif Ali Khan and the paternal granddaughter of Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi and Sharmila Tagore.
