The demise of Sushant Singh Rajput has left his fans in mourning. The death of the actor has also raised a number of questions. While many have termed the fight for justice as a politically motivated affair, people are asking unsettling questions to people in power. Yesterday, a journalist in a newspaper wrote an article about how Bihari boys had to lead the life of a 'Shravan Kumar'. The article called out the manner in which families from the heartland like to have an autonomy over their sons. In short, she hinted that late Sushant Singh Rajput's family had a somewhat toxic influence on their son and could not stand his relationship with a modern girlfriend.
The family is in mourning right now, and fans were quick to slam the blatant stereotyping in the article. His brother-in-law, Vishal Kirti took to his blog to call out the journalist. It read: Jyoti interpreted it to say that Vishal cannot believe that Sushant was depressed. She also adds, “The fact that the family doesn’t want to accept that their son could have been depressed even after his death, shows how little they know about this issue”. First up, please read my post more carefully to understand what I have said about mental health. Mental health is an outcome of biology and the environment. Let’s just assume for a second (hypothetically) that Sushant was biologically predisposed for depression. You still need to understand the environmental factors which led to his alleged depression. If hostile environmental conditions are brought out in the FIR, that’s because Sushant’s family in India were aware of the situation created by Rhea and her stooges, as exposed in their complaints to the Bandra DCP in February 2020 and SOS calls Sushant gave to his family in November 2019, January 2020, and June 2020. Those hostile environmental conditions could include gaslighting, blackmailing, alienating, covert medication, overt overmedication, and so on. I am not saying that a very hostile environment is necessary for people to fall into depression but in this case, the presence of a hostile environment seems to ring true.
This is not all. He said that the family never objected to the actor's relationships or to the women in his life. He said it was in response to the fact that Bihari families cannot stand 'girlfriends' . He wrote, "This is a preposterous generalization on many levels. Let’s start with Sushant. Many people know that Sushant dated Ankita for at least six years and they lived together for a good portion of that relationship. People have seen great pictures of Ankita and Sushant’s family together and almost everyone knows that some members of Sushant’s family, including my wife, are in constant touch with Ankita."
His brother-in-law hinted that the late actor was apparently in a relationship with Kriti Sanon but did not confirm it. He wrote, "Sushant then presumably dated Kriti (although he did not explicitly mention that they were dating, so they might be just very good friends) and the last time we met him in July 2017, Kriti met with us as well. We were fond of Kriti too.
This is where Jyoti’s stereotypical “toxic Bihari family” trope gets debunked. The FIR didn’t say that my father-in-law couldn’t stand Ankita. He actually adored Ankita and even stayed over in Mumbai with Ankita and Sushant. The FIR mentions one specific person called Rhea and giving it an anti-feminist flare is toxic journalism."
