Sushant Singh Rajput’s publicist and friend Rohini Iyer has written a long and emotional post on social media slamming all those showing ‘fake’ concern for his death and others who are coming up with all kinds of conspiracy theories about his tragic suicide.

Sharing a picture of herself with Rajput, Rohini Iyer said, “Whenever I check social media to check up on news on him, I read fiction and instead of finding people online, I see peddlers. Peddlers pushing their agendas to promote themselves and their causes. Every single person who wants their two-bit of fame has an opinion on his life. Firstly, he didn’t give a fuck about fame or your opinions. He didn’t care about these people who are busy posting about not being in touch with him. For the record, he didn’t care about being in touch.”

There have been plenty of messages and memes on social media claiming that Rajput missed out on certain big films because he wasn’t part of any group in the film industry. Reacting to this, Iyer said, “He rejected your parties, you didn’t shun him. He rejected your lobbies. He didn’t need camps, he had his own kingdom. He was a fighter. He made his own place in the sun. He was an outsider and he never cared about being an insider. That’s because he had a life beyond films. The industry was a small part of his life.” 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

This has to be said . My best friend is no more , I still have a bloody hard time accepting that and whenever I check social media to check up on news on him, I read fiction and instead of finding people online , i see peddlers . Peddlers pushing their agendas to promote themselves and their causes . Every single person who wants their two bit fame has an opinion on his life . Firstly, he didn’t give a fuck about fame or your opinions. He didn’t care about these people who are busy posting about not being in touch with him. For the record, he didn’t care about being in touch. He hated fake friends, phone calls and small talk. He rejected your parties, you didn’t shun him. He rejected your lobbies . He didnt need camps, he had his own kingdom. He was a fighter . He made his own place in the sun. He was an outsider and he never cared about being a insider . That’s because he had a life beyond films. The industry was a small part of his life , he had many worlds beyond that . He didn’t give a shit about success . He never failed . He has given more super hits than any of his other contemporaries . He just didn’t care about the 100 crore club. He didn’t want to belong to any club or be part of the rat race . He didn’t care about awards . He walked out of an award function just cos he got bored . This was even before they announced his best actor award . You had to be a lot more interesting than a bloody trophy to hold his attention. He was a force of nature. His accomplishments are multifold. He was as simple as quantum physics . He was a crazy genius. He read Sartre and Nietzsche , he studied astronomy and stoicism , he wrote poetry , played the guitar , wrote with his left and right hand. He cared about saving the planet , the world , about going to Mars, he invested in charities , in science projects and innovations that were beyond your comprehension . So please don’t try to make sense of him or reduce his talent to serve your mere agenda .

Rohini Iyer also said Rajput never really cared about success or being in the Rs100 crore club and recalled how he once walked out of an awards function before his name could be called out for the best actor award because he was bored stiff.

“His accomplishments are multi-fold. He was as simple as quantum physics. He was a crazy genius. He read Sartre and Nietzsche, he studied astronomy and stoicism, he wrote poetry, played the guitar, wrote with his left and right hand,” she said. “He cared about saving the planet, the world, about going to Mars. He invested in charities, in science projects and innovations that were beyond your comprehension.”

In a final appeal, she added, “So please don’t try to make sense of him or reduce his talent to serve your mere agenda.”
