Sushant Singh Rajput’s sudden death caused a stir in Bollywood, raising several discussions about nepotism, bullying, and favoritism. The 34-year-old committed suicide on June 14, sending shockwaves across the nation. After Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, celebrities like Kangana Ranaut, Raveena Tondon & Abhinav Singh Kashyap stepped forward to share their own experiences of being bullied in the industry.
Now a video of late actress Jiah Khan’s mother, Rabia Amin, is getting viral in which she is seen asking Bollywood to “wake up” and “demolish bullying”. Jiah Khan (25) committed suicide in 2013. She also state that years ago, cops had told her that Salman Khan asked them to keep off actor Sooraj Pancholi, who was interrogated regarding the late actress’s death case.
The video starts with Rabia Amin expressing her condolences to Sushant Singh Rajput’s family, and calling the incident heartbreaking. She then says, “Bollywood has to wake up and demolish bullying. And I have to say bullying is also a kind of killing somebody. All that is happening has reminded me of 2015, when I went to meet a CBI officer, who called me down from London. He said, ‘Please come, we have found important evidences’. I land up over there, and he says, ‘Oh by the way, Salman Khan called me up, he calls me every day and he says that he has invested a lot of money. Please don’t harass the boy or interrogate him, don’t touch him, so what can we do, madam.’ He looked frustrated and annoyed, I took the matter to higher CBI officers in Delhi, and filed a complained about it.

“If this is how you are going to use your money and power to pressurize and sabotage deaths and investigations. Then, I don’t know where are we, as citizens, to go. Who do we go to? I want to say please stand up, fight, protest, and stop this toxic behavior in Bollywood.” In June 2013, Jiah Khan’s sudden death had left the industry in shock. Actor Sooraj Pancholi was booked for abatement to suicide under Section 306 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
