“Not In Good Taste”….Shekhar Suman, Ananth Mahadevan Lash Out At Sushant Bio-pic

The rushed  and many say premature, announcement of a  Sushant Singh Rajput bio-pic has not been taken well by many , including Sushant’s family.

According to  sources  known  to  Sushant’s family, his father and sisters and  relatives are fed  up of this  constant speculation and  accusations. “They  haven’t even had  the  chance to mourn properly.They  feel crowded, intruded  upon. If someone is making  a film on Sushant, have they bothered  to take the family consent?”

It’s been one feverish whirligig for the Singh parivar . They have not had the time or space to mourn. Sources say  the family just wants  a proper closure to Sushant’s death.

Shekhar Suman who has been battling for a  CBI probe into Sushant’s death feels the  idea of  a film onSushant’s   life too close to the  tragedy to be  distasteful. “This is not in good taste .The vultures are there to suck every drop of blood.Let’s not commercialize sensationalize and trivialize  Sushant’s death.Wait!There will be plenty of opportunities to make a film.Not on this one.Not yet.”

Filmmaker Ananath Mahadevan who has made several notable  bio-pics  is  also  appalled  by  the idea  of a SSR bio-pic so  close  to the  tragedy.  “What do we say? This is a clear case of jumping the gun. Is it a film based on assumptions? Will they claim it to be a true story or will the mandatory disclaimers be out?”

Mahadevan whose biopics,  Me Sindhutai Sapkal , Gour Hari Dastaan  and  Doctor Rakhmabai have won  national and international  honours , wonders what the  hurry is  for a film on  Sushant’s experiences.   “Why are we so eager to exploit a tragedy that hasn’t even sunk in? Are there no other subjects to film? I guess terror tourism and tragic hero-ism are sitting ducks in show business. God bless us!”
