#JusticeForSushant vs #JusticeForRhea: Celsbs stand divided, hope for the truth to come out soon

#JusticeForSushant vs #JusticeForRhea: Celsbs stand divided, hope for the truth to come out soon

The Sushant Singh death case has become nothing less than a thriller mystery film plot. With Rhea Chakraborty’s arrest in the drug peddling case, it seems there are so many layers still hidden in the case. And while a few of the celebrities have spoken in favour of Rhea and have supported the #JusticeForRhea campaign, others are still standing by #JusticeForSushant. Let’s see what celebs have to say about it:

Amal Sehrawat: I have full faith in our judiciary and investigating agencies. And I am sure they are not leaving any stone unturned. If any charges including drug peddling are proved then the judiciary will definitely set an example by punishing all the culprits so that no one else ever dares to repeat anything similar.

Shivani Gosain: Really sad that a young dynamic talent died like this. I never met him or worked with him but came to know about his unique personality, such a genius boy he was. Murdered or created such a situation to force him to take such drastic steps, both is a crime and culprits should be punished. His case has become a global concern and so many things are getting mixed up. I pray that his death and his family should get closure and true justice so that his soul rests in peace.

Vijayendra Kumeria: I am personally of the opinion that one is not guilty until proven guilty in the court of law, with the investigative agencies doing their job the truth shall come out. I am not in support of any media trials or people passing judgements on social media, there should be justice for all.

Savi Thakur: Yes definitely Rhea is not alone in this, there are so many big names linked to his murder and the culprit will also get arrested, but I think the main offenders behind this murder are still free. The CBI has begun the process by arresting her and more layers will open soon. The investigation is still going on. I don’t know who all are running this campaign, but seriously #JusticeForRhea, I feel sorry for such people who want to save a culprit. Someone has lost his young son and Rhea is totally involved so what justice are you talking about? Just open your eyes and ask #JusticeForSushant.

Subuhii Joshii: Rhea Chakraborty’s case has been the most controversial case in recent times. Whatever reports, chats and videos have been circulated recently, it seems she is definitely connected with drug peddlers and she’s been an important part of the circuit which was involved in some illegal activities for long. Her arrest was done on some really solid ground and I am hundred percent sure that there are innumerable layers in the case which will open in coming days. As far as #JusticeForRhea campaign is concerned, my opinion is that everyone is free to voice his or her opinion. There are always two sides of a coin and if in Sushant’s case some people are voicing for Rhea, I am fine with it. Three big, reputed agencies are involved in this case, so whatever facts and truth are hidden inside will be dug by them. I strongly believe that Sushant Singh’s father, sisters and also millions of fans need closure.

Kettan Singh: The 9 p.m. debates should be renamed Band Baaja Baarat for a few low life high TRP channels that are running a high BP, third grade anxiety circus, to find justice for SSR. The SSR case has multiple layers, and the worst is when some channels ride on conspiracy theories that they can’t prove at all, but can make roof cracking TRPs of it. In Rhea’s case they didn’t find any evidence of money laundering, abetment to suicide or killing SSR, she was finally arrested for possessing 59 grams of Marijuana, and it was celebrated by some media channels because the agenda was to arrest her no matter what. Justice for SSR has definitely not been served yet, but I hope justice is given to the one who is guilty by media trial.

Pranitaa Pandit: The way things have unfolded it’s been really unfortunate especially in this Sushant Singh Rajput case. I am sure there is lot to it and it is not what it looks like, and over a period of time the case itself has proven that every time we think about it in a different way there is a new angle to it. I am really just praying and hoping that justice prevails and we get to know the truth behind the entire thing. As far as justice for this Rhea campaign is concerned, I really feel that the media has been too harsh on her, because she has still not being proven guilty yet. The arrest is going to give them more time to get the truth out regarding the case. Just hoping in one way or the other justice should prevail and we should get to know the truth and the real reason behind his suicide.

Urvashi Upadhyay Sharle: From Sushant’s death till now many new things came forward. After investigation it came to the point of drug and Rhea’s name came forward and she was arrested. Now a new campaign has started ‘justice for Rhea’, so I think the focus is being diverted from what happened to Sushant. The culprits should be punished and people are still in shock and curious to know if it was a suicide or murder and if suicide then what is the reason behind it so I think instead of all these movements justice for truth campaign should be run. We wish that truth should prevail.

Rohit Choudhary: Sushant Singh Rajput’s story after his death is like a film. Someone provoked him to do such a thing or someone forced him to take drugs whether it was Rhea, her brother or his manager and now we don’t know that was Sushant was asking for it or they were giving it to him. Whatever is the reason we will get to know it after the investigation. In Bollywood mostly everyone takes drugs and it is used all over the world. When people say lie it creates confusion and one day or the other truth will be revealed. Because of this drugs matter I don’t want the case to get diverted, they should focus on the main matter that is Sushant’s death. We want to know the reason behind it.

Khushbhoo Kamal: I am very happy that Rhea is arrested atleast we have taken one step forward to give him justice. We want the truth behind his death. The main culprit is still free and the kind of support Mumbai police is giving to Rhea is absolutely shameful. I am shocked to see that we have so much drug peddlers in our Bollywood. If Rhea is saved which means that she has involvement with some big people in Bollywood. I want Rhea to be in jail for a longer time. Now Sushant’s death mystery has taken a back seat and I don’t want the actually case to go under the sand. We want to know the reason behind such a talented boy’s death and the culprit should get the death sentence.

Amit Sarin: What really shocks me is that when our country is going through the biggest crisis as a pandemic, where migrant workers can’t manage one meal for their family, the economy is sinking by the day to its lowest GDP drop ever since Independence, COVID cases are only increasing by the day, and the focus of most of the media is on modern day mob lynching of one girl – Rhea, who my friend Shushant was in love with. Anybody who knew him even a little bit would surely say he would have never imagined this kind of treatment to his love. However, there are some questions in mind: Entire E.D is behind a case where Rs. 15 Cr was transferred from one account to another, the whole NCB is after figuring out the 56 grams of marijuana in question, and regarding Rhea, even one line of sympathy towards her has an army on Twitter slamming that person, who is orchestrating it and paying them? We Indians had higher values, moral compasses than this, we believed in judiciary and had a patient approach before we let any news channel hold a personal trial for TRP’s and to become number one. We must collectively think deep to showcase that if we were once known as a nation who believed in non-violence, peace and harmony. Are we still on that path?

Angad Hasija: We started with #JusticeForSSR and now most of us are seeking #JusticeForRhea. What is happening in the country now is beyond my belief? I understand that there are so many layers to this whole controversy, but I just don’t want it to deviate from the main issue, which gave way to all these findings. And honestly, what is this #JusticeForRhea campaign, she was arrested for drug peddling, and has even named other Bollywood celebrities, then what justice are they asking for. She was found guilty of something and so was arrested. Why are they speaking for her, where were all these people when Sushant was found dead.

Avinash Mukherjee: I have full faith on CBI and their investigation, and the case is revealing new details every day. And I am all for #JusticeForSSR, but what is this new #JusticeForRhea, she was arrested by the NCB under drug peddling charges, that means she was found guilty, so what kind of justice is everyone asking for. I know that when media mobbed her on her way to the NCB office, it was wrong, but after that what justice? Also, it’s good that they are trying to find more links to drug, but let’s not deviate from our main motive that was justice for Sushant.

Hindi Diwas: Celebs say don’t judge Hindi speakers, feel proud of our national language

Hindi Diwas: Celebs say don’t judge Hindi speakers, feel proud of our national language

Believe it or not, if you pay a closer look around yourself you will see people hardly speak in Hindi now. The country where the national language is Hindi, is the second-largest English speaking country in the world. And the language has become so important in our lives, that somewhere we have forgotten even the basics of Hindi. On Hindi Diwas, which is observed on September 14, we spoke to celebs about the language and it’s importance to them. Here’s what they had to say:

Rohit Choudhary: The word Hindustan has Hindi in it, but still if you see many in our country can neithe speak or understand Hindi, like if you go down south people don’t know Hindi there. Only 60 to 70 percent of Indians know how to speak and understand the language, but the rest 30 percent, who don’t understand Hindi, I want them to know it. The subject should be made compulsory in schools starting from class one till class 12. There should be one universal language which is known by every Indian so that people can easily connect and communicate if they visit any part of country. I love reading Hindi books and, magazine and I only watch Hindi movies. I want Hindi to be our first language.

Rishina Kandhari: I love my language and I am a very proud Indian. I try to speak in Hindi as much as possible, but sometimes at some places it is not possible to speak in Hindi. However, I try to communicate with my daughter in Hindi as she speaks English in school. I feel proud that my Hindi language is very good. I have read many Hindi books and novels. I want Hindi to not be an option in school but it should be a compulsory subject because in coming days it will become very important and necessary to know the language. I want our next generation to learn pure Hindi and so, we should spread and create awareness of Hindi language.

Vijyaendra Kumeria: We should give a lot of emphasis on Hindi as it is our official language. It’s sad that the youth finds it uncool when someone is more comfortable with Hindi over English. I think this thought should change. Knowing other languages is great but looking down upon Hindi is not cool. We should feel proud of our very own language. I do read Hindi literature whenever I can, the reason being it polishes my Hindi and I learn new words too. As an actor it is very helpful for me to have a good command on the language. I think schools should make it a point to give Hindi more weightage, just like any other important subject.

Aniruddh Dave: I am a Hindi speaking person, I love the language and I would like to say “Nari ke mathe pe sajti jaisi bindi hai, humko toh lagti hai pyari bhasa humari Hindi hai.” I was born in Hindustan and I speak in Hindi only, in fact 90 percent of my tweets are in Hindi. It is very necessary to have command on our national language. If someone explains a character to me in Hindi, it feels good because finally at the end of the day we have to act in Hindi only. I read Hindi stories and upanyas and I have read more than 300 to 400 books and during lockdown also I read a lot. It’s a good practice that one should learn our national language. Every year on this day, Hindi diwas, I write a poetry and this year also I will write and post it on my social media.

Savi Thakur: As you know Hindi is our national language so I think everyone should be perfect in the language. Nowadays we judge people who can’t speak in Hindi, which is very wrong. I think we should give priority to our national language, I am not saying learning other languages is bad but in India at least with our people we should converse in Hindi. People think if one doesn’t know English, then they don’t know anything. But we shouldn’t judge them on this. If we go outside India, and they speak in Hindi, we find it cool, but if an Indian tries to do it in India, that’s called uncool. This should be stopped. Knowing English doesn’t define your intelligence or your personality, we should feel free to speak in Hindi and we should not forget that it’s our national language. I think I am good enough with Hindi, because they taught us well in school.

Shivani Gosain: Being a Hindustani I am proud of my Hindi language. I am from Delhi so luckily my Hindi is good atleast better than a lot of people. Our Hindi lierature is rich in spirituality and morality, I feel guilty that I was not able to read Hindi Literature after my graduation, but I think I will start reading it now. It will be great if for the initial few years students have compulsory Hindi in schools.

Aashish Mehrotra: Hindi is not just close to me, it’s close to all the Indians. I guess English has become a style statement now. Generally the person you are most comfortable with, you will always speak to them in Hindi, be it at home, or your close friends or your siblings. I understand that English is important, especially in today’s times, but so is Hindi and we shouldn’t forget that.

Shilpa Raizada: It’s always a Hindi diwas for me because I prefer talking to everyone in Hindi rather than English. Even the place I belong to, our mother tongue is Hindi. I can’t speak for others, but I always speak in Hindi, in fact in all my interviews or conversations, I speak in Hindi, without any hesitation. It’s not something to be ashamed of, in fact I feel proud in talking to anyone in Hindi. We should not forget that we belong to India, and our mother tongue is Hindi. I feel very close to the language, and in fact since I was 16 I have been writing poetries too in Hindi. I tried in English too, but it did not have the same feeling.

Mou Das: There has been a debate going on for quite a long time on Hindi as our national language. Keeping that aside, I have a strong association with the language as I love watching Hindi content over English. Hindi has forever been the most common language spoken all over India after the mother tongue of the regions. With so many great writers who have given bestsellers in Hindi, I would love to indulge in reading them. But due to lack of time reading is nothing but a luxury. About the emphasis on Hindi at school. I strongly believe that we should give importance to English language as it is the most commonly accepted language around the world. However, Hindi, Sanskrit and other regional languages should also be give equal importance as we need to protect our rich cultural heritage and encourage the engagement in the literary platforms of our country.
