Today, Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput left the world for a heavenly ride. His fans are left with grief, sadness and disbelief. Sushant Singh Rajput, the future of Indian Cinema and one of the most intelligent Bollywood personality was found hanged in his residence in Bandra, Mumbai. Sushant Singh Rajput committed suicide because of depression and anxiety that he was facing for a long period. But what came as more shocking is media’s insensitiveness over Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
Media is considered as one of the strongest pillar of the democratic nation. But where media stands today, the insensitiveness of media over this tragic incident has left everyone fuming. Media has certainly crossed it’s limit. A reporter of a reputed media house entered Sushant’s residence in Patna to take a byte of his father regarding his death. The father who is going through lot of pain and stress as he never imagined he would ever see a day like this, was left with nothing to say.
If this was not enough, someone knowingly leaked the dead body’s pic which later gone viral throughout social media. This has certainly hit a new low and the reason behind this is our mindsets. Media releases these sensitive contents because the audience wants to consume it. People are blaming the reporters for this unethical act but what people needs to remember is they are bounded to do so. The working of the system is wrong, proper protocol for such situations should be created so that it doesn’t harm anyone’s sentiments.
Bollywood has stood up against unethical standard of media over Sushant Singh Rajput death. Actress Anushka Sharma tweeted, “At this time of immense tragedy, I would request the media to be sensitive towards Sushant’s family and friends. I urge everyone to respect their emotions and let them grieve”.
