Actress Swara Bhasker has taken a dig at Kangana Ranaut after the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi confirmed that Sushant Singh Rajput died by suicide and was not murdered.
She took to Twitter and wrote that “some people” had proclaimed they would return their awards if their claims in the Sushant death case were proven wrong.
Hey! Now thay both CBI and AIIMS have concluded that #SushantSinghRajput tragically died by suicide... weren’t some people going to return their government bestowed awards??? 🤔🤔🤔— Swara Bhasker (@ReallySwara) October 7, 2020
She was alluding to Kangana's July interview with Republic TV, where she said, “They (Mumbai Police) summoned me, and I asked them too, that I’m in Manali, that you can send somebody to take my statement, but I have not received anything after that. I am telling you, if I have said anything, which I can’t testify, which I can’t prove, and which is not in public domain, I will return my Padma Shri”.
Since Wednesday afternoon, #KanganaAwardWapasKar (return the award, Kangana) has been trending on social media in India as people are demanding that she keep her word by returning the award after the AIIMS forensic team ruled out the possibility of murder in its report submitted to India’s top probe agency the CBI.
There were no injuries on the body other than of hanging. There were no marks of struggle/scuffle on the body and clothes of the deceased: Dr Sudhir Gupta, Chairman of AIIMS Forensic Medical Board formed in #SushantSinghRajput death case— ANI (@ANI) October 3, 2020
While many Twitter users wrote that she should fulfil her promise, some took a jibe at her by calling it a publicity stunt to seek attention and was politically driven.
i love Kangana and she had the right idea that nepotism had affected Sushant, but later she cast her lot with arnab’s murder conspiracy theory and slipped up. So it’s only fair if she said it that she should return it #KanganaAwardWapasKar @KanganaTeam— Devkanya (@devkanya_rc) October 7, 2020
So this was a commitment made.— Raj Patil (@raj_rvp) October 7, 2020
Now that so much damaged has been done, will these promises be kept? Or should the people just consider these statements as a mere publicity stunt? #KanganaAwardWapasKar#RheaDefeatedArnab#RheaChakraborthy#20thYearOfNaMo pic.twitter.com/95f9reLkf4
