Shatrughan Sinha backs Kangana Ranaut
Daughter Sonakshi however is all praise for Taapsee
In the wake of Sushant Singh Rajput's tragic death, the issue of nepotism and camps within the industry favoring some at the cost of others has become a matter of hot debate.
Actress Kangana Ranaut, who has been vocal about the issue since the beginning, once again targeted the Bollywood 'mafia' and revealed how these people ruin both careers and lives of talented 'outsiders' by ganging up against them.
Actor-turned-politician Shatrughan Sinha has now given his opinion on the issue and said that he has always supported Kangana and will continue to do so.
In a recent interview with Republic Media, Sinha slammed the lobbies in Bollywood for targetting Ranaut. Further, he also praised her for taking a neutral stance while calling her "sharp" and "intelligent" and accused the lobbies of assassinating her character.

"Most of the people I see, they speak against Kangana because from the inside they are very jealous of Kangana that without our mercy, without our will, without joining our groups or without any blessings from us, this girl has gone too far and achieved so much without any push of ours. They are irritated and jealous of her success and bravery," he is stated to have said.
The backlash against industry kids in the aftermath of the death of Sushant Singh Rajput had led to widespread trolling of many. Interestingly Shatrughan Sinha's daughter Sonakshi had even quit social media and deactivated her Twitter following hate messages. The actress had further supported Taapsee Pannu for speaking up against Kangana and her constant jibe at "B grade actresses" who support the Nepo kids.
With demands growing for a CBI enquiry into the death of the young actor, the rift within Bollywood has been laid bare. While many have spoken out about the power play within the industry and the various camps, many A list stars have interestingly chosen to remain aloof.
