On Wednesday, the hashtag #JusticeForSushant trended on Twitter as a large number of netizens felt the young actor had been a victim of politics and power play by Bollywood’s nepotism gang, which eventually pushed him towards a drastic step.
At the same time, netizens are calling for a boycott of Karan Johar and his films, alleging the filmmaker only promotes industry insiders and star kids. Hashtags like #BoycottKaranJohar, #BoycottKaranJoharGang and #Boycottkaranjohargangmovie are also doing the rounds on social media.
