Salman’s request to his fans came hours after angry supporters of Sushant Singh Rajput allegedly vandalised the Being Human store in Patna and forced to the owner to remove the Bollywood megastar’s poster.
Meanwhile, an online petition calling for the boycott of Salman Khan, Yash Raj Films and Karan Johar has garnered close to 40 lakh signatures. Sushant Singh Rajput’s fans are angry that their screen idol was allegedly discriminated by established actors and production houses because of his status as an outsider.
Sushant’s body was found hanging inside his house on Sunday morning. The 34-year-old actor from Bihar had made his Bollywood debut with Kai Po Che before acting in successful films such as MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, PK, Raabta, Kedarnath and Chhichhore among others.
