In conversation with Hindustan Times, Hunterr Actor Gulshan Devaiah opened up about how the narrative around Sushant Singh Rajput’s death keeps changing.
He also commented on Kangana’s actions, stating that a lot of things she says are insincere.
Devaiah felt that people are just looking for “soft targets”, and Bollywood is one.
“I have no idea about Rhea, frankly I hadn’t even known her before the whole thing happened… let me say that may be she will be convicted the benefit of the doubt is left with the accusers also but the kind of vilification that is going on is just the projection of a lot of negativity that a lot of people are feeling in these uncertain times. They are just looking for soft targets and Bollywood sure is one.”
He further added that the whole situation is ‘playing to someone’s advantage’.
“I am a bit of a skeptic, I look at things that way and endorse critical thinking but I also understand that a lot of people don’t want to do that. But I think somebody is definitely taking the advantage of the whole situation because this is playing to someone’s advantage.”
Talking about Kangana Ranaut, Gulshan was of the opinion that – “I don’t want to engage with her about anything but all that I will say is a lot of things that she is saying insincere and a lot of voice that are affiliated to her school of thought are also insincere to me. But aap politics karenge aur doosre nahi karenge iska koi matlab nahi hai.”
The actor also felt that the people spearheading this movement are fighting an ‘insincere fight disguised as righteous fight’.
“They may have faith in what they are doing and they may say that this is a righteous fight but I think it is insincere. It is an insincere fight disguised as a righteous fight. There are other hidden motives and agendas over here. It has now become really confusing as to what happened, it started with nepotism, then murder, then drugs then Maharashtra Police and then Shiv Sena… the narratives keeps changing.”
Devaiah concluded by lauding those who have stood up for the film industry.
“We are a part of a fraternity and it is not like a family or anything it is a workplace, we are professionally related to each other. There are a lot of things that are bad in this industry and there are a lot of things that are not what they say also. I think we have to stand together not because we are like a big mafia but we stand together with respect and dignity. People speaking up is important.”
