Mumbai | Jagran News Desk: Actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s untimely death by suicide has sparked a never-seen-before outpouring of rage against the most powerful Bollywood lobbies which continue to define the entertainment dynamisms of the industry with their powerful clout, by shunning and choosing people of their choice irrespective of the talent quotient.

Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh reacted on Twitter over the media reports claiming Sushant’s death caused by depression due to professional rivalry.

"While the post mortem report says the actor committed suicide by hanging himself, there are media reports that he allegedly suffered from clinical depression because of professional rivalry. Mumbai Police will probe this angle too," the minister tweeted.

The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader also posted a video on Twitter, deliberating upon the assertion of police department probing the angle of professional rivalry.

According to media reports, the 34-year-old actor was preparing for Shekhar Kapur’s ‘Paani’, and was intensely preparing for that ‘career defining’ role for many months. The film reportedly went to the cold box due to various financial crunches and intra-bollywood rivalries, which took a heavy toll over Sushant’s mental health. The actor was reportedly being treated for depression for over last six months.

Shekhar Kapur, the maker of ‘Paani’ took to Twitter and revealed what Sushant was going through.
