Saki Saki fame actress Koena Mitra, who has always been vocal about issues and never shies away from expressing her thoughts recently opened up about Sushant Singh Rajput’s tragic suicide and groupsim prevalent in Bollywood. In an exclusive conversation with ETimes TV, the actress shared that she is surprised why Sushant’s family has still not come forward to ask for an inquiry. She also talked about how the movie mafia works, star kids and that Mukesh Bhatt’s statement on Sushant was gross. (Photo: Instagram) By: Vijaya Tiwari
Everyone has an opinion and as long as they are not making things ugly, I am ok with it. Why should we stop anyone from putting out their opinion on social media, that’s why we have social media. But I can see too much ugliness, bitterness on social media. I know people are losing their sanity and they won’t talk about their failures, fame, but they are throwing their anger on others. People are losing patience, there is zero tolerance on social media.
They attack you on social media, they write gross stuff. It pisses me off, makes me angry, but I feel what is the point of fighting, when they should have basic manners. So, I have stopped trying. Right now it is a phase and it will come and go. We have to just accept what is going around. I felt bad and terrible after a point I stopped because for me Sushant’s family’s silence is something that I was shocked to see. Why his family is not demanding anything. Why wonder why his family is so silent? For how long everyone else will fight or voice out for Sushant.
Sushant Singh Rajput was a good person, he was doing so well in life, he had good films. His personal life was also ok. We all have highs and lows in life. His life did not look that bad. It feels terrible to see someone so young, who has money, a stable personal life and whose last film was such a big hit, had a beautiful family.
Why will someone take his life? What happened. Then I see photographs, videos, marks on his neck, so many goof ups. The cover up wasn’t done well. I feel there’s something that’s stopping his family from asking for justice. I am very curious to know what is keeping them quiet. Their silence is very thought provoking. Maybe pressure, fear or stress. I am sure the family is shaken right now, they have lost their son who was so young. Public concern as an outsider is there and I feel if there was something wrong. Be it pressure, was getting blackmailed, if there was anything it should come out. They should get support.
I do not believe in godfathers. We have one god and one father that is enough, Godfathers are losers. Just for a thank you speech they do a lot. To show mastership, ownership they do a lot. It is very shabby when people accept godfathers and become chelas. I don’t know what kind of people they are and why they like becoming somebody’s chamcha or chelas, slave. When they know they are good for nothing, they try to find a godfather. Why struggle is such a bad thing, why they need everything so easy. Don’t they know easy things, battles, people don’t stay. All easy things are ugly. I don’t know about godfathers, but chelas are definitely the ugliest thing we have around. Because of these ugly chelas we have so many goondas around us. If we have a world without chelas,
I agree with Kangana. There’s too much goondagiri in our and every industry. There is definitely groupsim, favouritism. If you talk about something or try to be vocal, they shut you down. They don’t have any license or power to do that and the root cause of the goondagiri is these followers. The coward people who become chamchas are the biggest problem and if they are not around these mafias won’t exist.
A lot of people fear failures, struggling, they want overnight success and they live in their fake imaginary world. These chelas, followers create mafias and monsters. I feel no one should bow down to anybody. No one has the license to decide someone’s fate. If you are in an unpleasant situation do not fear anybody, be vocal about it you have so many platforms. You raise questions and take them out of their comfort zones. It should become a habit people should make it a practise. These Goondas have
I don’t think any star kid should be banned. There are many star kids who also struggle. There are many star kids who are amazing actors like Ranbir Kapoor. Humble, down to earth, no goondagiri, he quietly does his work. The only thing is star kids get easy access and outsiders have to struggle to get access. Another point is star kids even after giving 20 flops they will get a film, whereas outsiders may not be considered.
At the same time star kids also are under a lot of pressure as they continuously get compared to their father, mother or any other family member. They get to hear this constantly that you are not good enough, your father-mother was better. That’s also a kind of pressure, a harsh comparison that they have to deal with throughout their career. So, there are good sides and bad sides as well. Despite 20-30 flops, they will still get a big film. They will always remain the first choice despite their flop films because of clans and groupism. I am not talking about everyone but there are few. Like I said Ranbir Kapoor, he showed his maturity and intense side in his first few films only so there are these star kids who are good.
I want to know why there is no inquiry about Mukesh Bhatt, I don’t know why police did not question him. I mean how do you know that Sushant was into depression and if you knew why didn’t you help him. That was such a gross statement where you are calling Sushant Singh Rajput the next Parveen Babi. And the other thing is whenever there is something horrible in the country whether it is 26/11 or a suicide sensitive case like this they are always there. A lot of us are just waiting why they are not getting questioned and when they will be. I am not very happy with Mumbai police’s way of functioning. I don’t know why they are not seeing the things that we can see. There are lots of people who need to be questioned but they are not summoned.
