‘Who is he to say that?’: Kangana Ranaut slams Mukesh Bhatt for comparing Sushant Singh Rajput’s death with Parveen Babi
New Delhi | Jagran Entertainment Desk: Bollywood’s Queen Kangana Ranaut never shared on-screen space with late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, but his demise seems to have shaken her from the core. The reason being, the sheer amount of relativism in the career journey of the two, making way into the film industry without any inherited privileges. In an interview with Pinkvilla, Kangana again blasted upon the stalwarts of the film industry, specifically the Bhatts (both Mukesh and Mahesh Bhatt) for their lack of alleged lack of understanding into the reasons behind Sushant’s suicide.
“Mukesh Bhatt is now claiming that Sushant was heading the ‘Parveen Babi Way’. But what they did to Parveen Babi, everybody remembers,” said the actress who played the lead role in ‘Wo Lamhe’ (2006) based on Parveen Babi's life, her battle with schizophrenia and her relationship with Mahesh Bhatt.
After deliberating upon Mahesh Bhatt’s reaction upon the aftermath of her relationship with Hrithik Roshan, Kangana goes on to say: “His brother (Mukesh Bhatt) is jumping into this whole thing and claiming that Sushant was turning Parveen Babi. Who is he to say that? Sushant was a rank holder; he also left a scholarship from Stanford University to pursue his dreams. Something that their (Bhatt) children cannot even think of.”
“Tomorrow, if their children hang themselves on the roof and somebody jumps up and comments that it just happened because they were becoming like Parveen Babi, I want to see how they feel about it,” added Kangana.
On June 15th, filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt’s brother, Mukesh Bhatt, in an interview to a TV channel, while emphasising upon ‘stress oriented’ part of film industry, said that ‘if you cannot cope with the stress this is not the profession to be in’, while adding that if you have asthma, you cannot go to Siachen and fight a war because you have weak lungs.
Mukesh Bhatt added, “There was something amiss, something wrong. And I sensed that because way back in life, I started my career way back with Parveen Babi, my first film and she unfortunately was a victim of schizophrenia. I remember telling this to my brother, that I worry about this boy is going the Parveen Babi way. While the world is very shocked about this tragic incident I'm not shocked because I saw it coming.”
