Never before Bollywood faced the kind of heat it is facing now. First, it was Disha Salian, the former manager of the late actor, Sushant Singh Rajput, who died under suspicious circumstances. Thereafter, even Sushant lost his life, which was dubbed as a suicide.
After reports of foul play in Sushant’s death surfaced, the Bihar Government handed over the probe to the CBI, and later even the Supreme Court had put its stamp of approval on handing over the case to the investigative agency.
When it came to light that the Mumbai Police were trying to conceal things, many media houses latched on to the opportunity and shedding light on the issue in an unprecedented manner.
However, the credit for creating the momentum for the CBI probe goes to actress Kangana Ranaut, who relentlessly campaigned against the ills prevalent in the Mumbai film industry.
There are many allegations against the tinsel town such as nepotism, drug abuse, sexual exploitation, nexus with the underworld, connections with the radical Islamic terrorists, which remained unprobed.
The main reasons behind the Bollywood escaping the scrutiny were the money and muscle power it commanded and the favourable political dispensations it had.
After Kangana Ranaut started raising pertinent questions, things started changing. It takes real mettle to speak against the well-entrenched Bollywood mafia and to expose them.
Despite the difficulties and challenges involved, she persisted with her efforts and finally succeeded in attracting the attention of the wider society towards the evils prevalent in Bollywood. As a result, people are paying attention to the darker side of the Mumbai film industry.
What Kangana achieved is no ordinary feat and she deserved appreciation for her courage and persistent effort to bring out the truth.
The Bollywood mafia, which feels threatened by the developments, has launched a ferocious verbal assault against her. The politicians are calling her names such as ‘Haramkhor Ladki’ and even threatening her not to come to Mumbai.
The Bollywood celebs who are part of the Left-Islamist alliance and known for inciting mobs during the JNU Tukde-Tukde protests, Shaheen Bagh Islamist protests and Delhi riots are heaping abuses on her. Therefore, all the right-thinking people of India should extend their support to her, as this is the right opportunity to expose the dark deeds of the people associated with the Mumbai film industry.
