Among the many names who called out the hypocrisy of several industry insiders for their ‘empty’ notes of condolences, was director Shekhar Kapur, who in a shocking tweet, revealed that he knew the people who let Sushant down.
“I knew the pain you were going through. I knew the story of the people that let you down so bad that you would weep on my shoulder. I wish I was around the last 6 months. I wish you had reached out to me,” he said in a tweet.

Kapur finally replied to all the requests but refused to divulge any names. He simply said, “Naming few people has no value. They themselves are products and victims of a ‘system’ everyone is protesting against. If you really care, if you’re really angry, then bring down the system. Not the individual. That’s guerilla warfare. Not a spurt of anger.”
