New Delhi: A five-year-old tweet from writer Chetan Bhagat has suddenly gone viral on Twitter, in which he had announced Sushant Singh Rajput as the lead actor of the film based on his book ‘Half Girlfriend’.
Netizens are now sharing Bhagat’s tweet and blaming Arjun Kapoor for removing Sushant himself in the film with the help of nepotism. For this reason, Arjun Kapoor was in trend on Twitter on Wednesday.
In a tweet posted by Chetan Bhagat on 7 November 2015, “It is a pleasure to share that Sushant is playing the lead role in the film Half Girlfriend directed by Mohit”.
After the untimely demise of Sushant Singh Rajput last week, netizens feel that he was a victim of Bollywood nepotism and power play. Therefore, they are expressing their displeasure on social media and Star Kids are being trolled.
Sharing Bhagat’s tweet, a user wrote, “So Sushant was supposed to be in the film Half Girlfriend, but in the end, the film was given to Starkid Arjun Kapoor. At whose behest?”
Others wrote, “See how brother-nepotism works in corrupt Bollywood, Arjun Kapoor got this film by removing Sushant Singh Rajput, #Nomorenepotism.”
Another wrote, “Aditya removed Sushant, Ranveer removed Sushant, then veteran Arjun Kapoor removed Sushant, well then who among you thought it was just a coincidence not an injustice to Sushant. Please support Sushant, otherwise, we will see more Sushant soon.”
