Now fans are bashing on Bollywood biggies for not giving Sushant's his due in the film industry. Now fans outrage is reflecting on the social media handles of some celebrities, who have lost or gained millions of followers depending on the side they have chosen to be or speak.

According to the Hindustan Times report, "Across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, social media users have unfollowed those who are being accused of fuelling nepotism in the film industry. Between Monday night and Tuesday evening, actor Kangana Ranaut saw an increase in Instagram followers (from about 2 million to 3.2 million and counting) while Karan Johar's profile registered a rapid drop (from 11 million to 10.9 million, which was within 20 mins on Tuesday afternoon). The numbers are changing dynamically as you read this story since social media users are enraged by the non-recognition of outsider talent in Bollywood."

After getting devastated by fans' reactions Karan Johar has unfollowed other Bollywood celebrities from his Twitter account and now only following actors like Akshay Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and PM Narender Modi. Now fans have started questioning why movies with a glamorous star cast are usually the ones that drive most award events and why there is no reward recognition to the hardworking outsiders.

According to the reports, Sushant was suffering from depression and was on medication which later became a reason for his untimely death.
