Salman Khan, Karan Johar conspired to destroy Sushant Singh Rajput’s career; Kedarnath star was ‘hurt’ by humiliation at IIFA Award by Shah Rukh Khan, Shahid Kapoor: Late actor’s gym partner


A man claiming to be Sushant Singh Rajput’s gym partner has sensationally claimed that Salman Khan had conspired with filmmaker Karan Johar to destroy the late actor’s Bollywood career. Sunil Shukla also claimed that Sushant was incredibly hurt by the humiliation meted out to him at the IIFA Award in 2016 by none other than his screen idol Shah Rukh Khan and Shahid Kapoor.

According to Sunil Shukla, Karan Johar and and Salman Khan together conspired to not let him work in films. “Karan Johar signed Sushant and Jacqueline for a film Drive but in the middle of this film, Jacqueline got an offer to work in Race 3. Salman forced Karan to not release Drive. The second thing that Salman did was remove the leading actress of Drive- Sri Lankan national Jacqueline Fernandes- to ensure that Drive was delayed,” Sunil was quoted by ABP News.

Shukla also claimed that Sushant was very hurt by the humiliation meted out to him by Shah Rukh and Shahid in Macau at the IIFA Award. He said that Shah Rukh had deliberately changed the agreed chronology to humiliate the late actor from Bihar. He said that Sushant was first expected to arrive at the stage and inform Shah Rukh how there was a striking similarity between their career graphs.

Just like Shah Rukh, Sushant too had travelled from Delhi to become a Bollywood star. Like Shah Rukh, he too had first become a successful TV star before pursuing a career in the Hindi film industry. However, on the night of the award, Shukla alleged, Shah Rukh reneged on the agreed script and began to make fun of him with Shahid.

Shukla said that he had advised Sushant to initiate a legal case, but the late actor declined saying that his Bollywood dream would be over if he decided to take on an actor as big as Shah Rukh Khan.

I blame myself for not being in touch with you for the past year….. I have felt at times like you may have needed people to share your life with…but somehow I never followed up on that feeling…will never make that mistake again…we live in very energetic and noisy but still very isolated times …some of us succumb to these silences and go within…we need to not just make relationships but also constantly nurture them….Sushants unfortunate demise has been a huge wake up call to me …to my level of compassion and to my ability to foster and protect my equations…..I hope this resonates with all of you as well….will miss your infectious smile and your bear hug ….???

Karan Johar has faced plenty of grief from Sushant fans in the aftermath of the 34-year-old actor’s death with many blaming the filmmaker for promoting nepotism. Karan has disappeared from social media, where he was very active until Sushant’s death. Though he has made a comeback on social media recently, Karan has barred his fans from commenting on his posts, fearing incessant trolling.




  1. Nice dialogue Karan joharji. But sorry..its fake. Pure bluff. Nobody is a fool. U seem to b fooling your own self..because we kno it all. Problem is ..u have to live with your own self too. That part will sort u.

  2. Shahrukh khan ji…screen par itney badey kirdaar karane ki koshish karatey ho..aur reality mein kitnaa chotta dil rakhtey ho. Itnaa kyaa dar thaa aapko Sushant sey? Confidence sirf apney se chottey kalakaron ki hansi udaa kar aataa hai aapko? Pathetic.

  3. The acts on award show are all scripted and everyone is a participant in it. I have seen another enactment where apparently Neil Nitin Mukesh has a verbal scuffle with SRK and Said and then I happen to see backstage interview of Neil confirming how he was nervous carrying out the act against his idol SRK. Please don’t spread gossip.

  4. what was the benefit to destroy SSR’s career to SK, SRK, KJO & Shahid Kapoor. They were afaird of SSR?
    we can find nepotism in every field of life like home, office, school blah blah. i am not fan of SK. Kindly focus on our own career to make your life happy.

  5. The whole Nation knows that SSR was murdered in cold blooded, why not arrested the murderer till now please justice for SSR.

  6. Salman khan, Shah Rukh Khan, karan johar, etc. are stars because ordinary people accepted them. What is wrong in them in accepting one among us like SSR. Who are they to define someone’s destiny?

  7. Waah….. Karan johar never made movie with Salman… But has planned a murder with Salman ?. Heights of gossip. WE WANT JUSTICE NOT GOSSIPS.

    How do we know the source who has claimed all this bulshit suddenly after 2 months is genuine…..and is not bought.

    Stupid and fake news ?
