Kangana Ranaut slams reports quoting Sushant’s family lawyer Vikas Singh
Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut has been on the forefront demanding justice for Sushant Singh Rajput ever since his death.
Ranaut, who called out several B-town bigwigs of sabotaging Rajput’s career has now taken upon herself to defend the media reports quoting statements made by the late actor’s family lawyer.
Ranaut made her Twitter debut recently after her team account, created in 2015 was verified.
The 33-year-old shared an old interview of Senior advocate Vikas Singh and wrote, “SSR’s family and their lawyer have always been very supportive of my struggle.”
The video was shared on the same day Singh told IANS, "Kangana is not Sushant's friend. She is basically highlighting the general discrimination in media.”
After the sudden demise of Sushant on June 14, Kangana had put out a video in which she talked about topics like Sushant's death, 'movie mafia' and 'nepo-kids' to reopen the nepotism debate.
"The issue that she is raising is correct, but she is not Sushant Singh Rajput's representative and neither is she carrying on his case. She is bringing out a general problem in the industry. Sushant may also have been a victim (of nepotism), but she is not representating him. Woh Sushant ka nahi kar rahi kuch bhi (she isn't doing anything for Sushant). She is only doing her own," said the advocate.
In another report by Pinkvilla, Singh said, "She's trying to further her own agenda and attack people she has a personal issue with to settle her own scores. She seems to be on her own trip. The family's FIR has nothing to do with her claims at all."
"Everyone knows nepotism exists in the industry. Sushant too must have faced discrimination. But that can't be the primary course of investigation in this case. Those can still be contributory factors, but the main case is on how Rhea and her gang tried to completely exploit and finish Sushant," he added.
The ‘Queen’ actress slammed reports that quoted Singh, and wrote on Twitter, “Movie mafia Bikau media is at it again, Sushant’s lawyer/family never said anything against me, but rumours are being spread, here’s what the family lawyer said almost in every interview of his, beware of vulture media.”
Meanwhile, the Supreme Court on Wednesday ordered a CBI probe into Sushant's death.
Kangana hailed the move saying it was a historic day, because so many controversial deaths have happened in the past but never in the history of India has a closed case been reopened.
