    Since the demise of late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who was found dead on 14 June in his Mumbai flat, actress Kangana Ranaut claimed his death was not a suicide, but a murder. In an interview with a TV news channel in July, she said she would return her coveted Padma Shri award if any of her claims was proven wrong.

    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.

    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.

    ​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.
