Sushant Singh Rajput's suicide has sparked a discussion on mental health in the film industry. Artistes like Deepika Padukone and Anupam Kher took to social media and stressed the need to reach out and share one's problems. But actress Kangana Ranaut, never one to mince words, said Rajput was not suffering from mental health issues.

In a video shared by her Twitter account, Ranaut launched a scathing attack on the Hindi film industry and accused it of driving Rajput to suicide. She rubbished claims about the actor having been suffering from depression and called it a well-planned narrative by the industry to shift the blame from itself and its actions.

The actress said it was hard to believe that someone who had once won a scholarship from Stanford University could be mentally weak.

Sushant Singh Rajput, 34, was found hanging at his residence in Bandra, Mumbai, yesterday.
