The sudden demise of actor Sushant Singh Rajput has given the voice to celebs to talk about their struggles and how they found it difficult to make their place in the entertainment industry. Several celebs including Kangana Ranaut and Abhay Deol have opened up about the existence of nepotism in the industry. Recently, actor Manoj Bajpayee also joined the debate and shared how 'the industry celebrates mediocrity and ignores those that are actually talented'.

Manoj stated that the world is not fair. The actor also stated that he has been saying this for 20 years that the industry celebrates 'mediocrity'. While talking to WION, Manoj said, "When we see talent, we immediately want to ignore or push it away. This is the value system of ours which is so deplorable. I have said it before that this industry has wasted talent; so much that in any other country those talents who have not been given their due here, would have been known as the best actors of the world. But we don’t care." 

Manoj further revealed that he is not blaming someone as he himself is a part of the industry. The actor stated that he has shared the same in his previous interviews as well that the industry needs to look inward and rectify the issue. "Rectify, or you will keep getting flak for it, cursed for it, and will keep on losing the respect of the common people," added Manoj. 

Manoj also stated that he survived in the industry because he is thick-skinned and ‘the son of a different mother’. He also talked about the small scale films and said that they are not mentioned properly and if they start to do well, they are immediately pulled down. Post Sushant's demise, Manoj has shared his disbelief hearing the sad news.  

On the work front, the actor was last seen in web series Mrs Serial Killer alongside Jacqueline Fernandez and Mohit Raina.

Bhushan Kumar’s wife and actor-director Divya Khosla Kumar has responded to Sonu Nigam’s allegations against her husband with an angry video. She has accused the singer of running a smear PR campaign against the T-Series chairman.

Divya, in the nearly 11-minute long video, says that T-Series has given chance to thousands of outsiders over the years, which include music directors, singers, lyricists, actors and directors. She adds that in her directorial debut, Yaariyan (2014), she gave chance to 10 newcomers, four of whom have become big names in the industry.

Sonu, in one of his videos, had accused Bhushan of being the ‘music mafia’ of the industry and harassing music professionals. To this, Divya asks Sonu as to how many people has he given chance to. Lambasting Sonu, she says that it is easy to take refuge in social media and make allegations.

She then reminds Sonu of the time when the singer allegedly sang for Rs 5 at a Ramleela in Delhi and was spotted by Bhushan’s father and T-Series founder Gulshan Kumar. She stresses how Gulshan played an instrumental role in the making of who Sonu Nigam is today. She also brings her cook Sheru into the frame to strengthen her claims.

Divya alleges that after Gulshan Kumar’s tragic killing in 1997, Sonu had gone to a rival music company to safeguard his career. She says that it was the time when Sonu had obliged Bhushan by doing the album Deewana for him but is now reminding him of the favour.

Sonu had named model-actress Marina Kuwar – who had accused Bhushan of sexual harassment during India’s #MeToo movement – in his video. The crooner had threatened Bhushan of uploading a video that he claims to be in possession of. Divya says that singer is free to upload the video but it should be backed by proof. She says that Marina’s case was one of the many blackmailing cases they faced during the movement, which she says, was misused by many.

Since then, his forum has received an overwhelming response on social media as fans have backed the actor's initiative to probe Sushant's tragic death. 

Taking cognisance of the good response on Twitter, Shekhar also took to the microblogging site to express gratitude towards his supporters. "Thank you for the overwhelming response to the #justiceforSushantforum ..im in the process of working out the modalities and giving it a shape.plz don't lose hope and be patient..i assure you that we will do our best to bring about a closure in his case," the 57-year-old said in a tweet on Wednesday.

"Sushant was a Bihari that's why the Bihari sentiment is at the forefront.But im not taking away the fact that it concerns ppl from all the states of India and there shldnt be another Sushant kind of tragedy with any young talent trying to make it on his own," Shekhar had said.
