Ever since Sushant Singh Rajput died of suicide on 14th June, his fans are busy lashing out at Bollywood biggie for pushing him to take this drastic step. However, among them, filmmaker Karan Johar is at a major loss because netizens are blaming him for starting the nepotism business ever since they got to know that nepotism is one of the reasons behind actor’s major step.
Well, Karan has remained tight-lip on this issue however his close friend opened up to Bollywood Hungama about Dharma chief’s state of mind. He revealed that KJo used to believe that he has developed a thick skin after being trolled for years over nepotism. However, after receiving brutal hatred on social media post-Sushant’s death, it has broken him and has left him shattered.

I blame myself for not being in touch with you for the past year..... I have felt at times like you may have needed people to share your life with...but somehow I never followed up on that feeling...will never make that mistake again...we live in very energetic and noisy but still very isolated times ...some of us succumb to these silences and go within...we need to not just make relationships but also constantly nurture them....Sushants unfortunate demise has been a huge wake up call to me ...to my level of compassion and to my ability to foster and protect my equations.....I hope this resonates with all of you as well....will miss your infectious smile and your bear hug ....💔💔💔
Karan’s friend continued that what is hurting filmmaker more is because of him his close ones are also being trolled and criticised. His 3-year-old twins Roohi and Yash are getting death threats while Ananya Panday who has no connection with Sushant is being asked by a social media user to commit suicide to compensate Sushant’s death.
At last Bollywood Hungama asked whether KJo will ever give a statement regarding the flak he received from social media to which his friend replied, “Not at all. Lawyers’ advice. Better to keep mum. Karan is in no condition to speak. The fight has gone out of him. He looks like a man beaten by fate. It’s not a pleasant experience to speak to Karan. He breaks down and cries when we call him. He is constantly crying and asking what he has done to deserve this."
