Late actor Jiah Khan’s mother’s Rabia Khan has condoled the death of Sushant Singh Rajput and said the practice of bullying in Bollywood needs to stop. She has asked people to “stand up; fight, protest and stop this toxic behavior in Bollywood.”
In a video on Spotboye, Rabia says, “My condolences to Sushant Singh’s family. It is very heartbreaking, it is not a joke. Bollywood has to change, Bollywood has to wake up. Bollywood has to completely demolish bullying. And I have to say bullying is also kind of killing somebody.”
Jiah was found hanging in 2013 at her Mumbai residence. Actor Sooraj Pancholi was booked for abetment of suicide (Section 306 of IPC) in the trial. The CBI conducted its own investigation and upheld the Mumbai police’s original finding that Jiah’s death was “suicidal in nature”.
