Much like her fellow colleagues, actor Kavita Kaushik, too, is angered to see the manner persons are leaping the gun in Sushant Singh Rajput demise case. ,Asserting that one ought to let regulation take its course and investigation to proceed easily, the actor is in opposition to the agenda-driven conversations which can be occurring round the case.
“Humein dukh hona chahiye ki jo gaya woh kabhi wapas nahi aayega. Par hum to apne baki cheezon mein lagey pade hain. It’s been over two months and I’m worried if a case of a superstar is taking this long to reach a conclusion, how much anyone of us can suffer if something like this happen to us,” wonders Kaushik.
She additionally factors how narratives have been shifting from one topic to a different additional complicating the case.
“It started from mental health, then nepotism, insider-outsider debate and now it’s drugs. This case is going everywhere, but reaching a conclusion. Kya hamara dhyan baki aur zazoori cheezon se hataya ja raha hai? This case is being politicised right now,” says Kaushik.
Looking at the poisonous trolling, mud-slinging, blame sport and title calling on social media, Kaushik feels it;s doing no good however including gasoline to the hearth.
“Social media is the worst drug. Look at the language, threats, abuses being hurled at people and random judgements being passed. Everyone is saying something or the other and changing their words to suit their vested interest. Koi bolta hai Mumbai safe nahi hai, koi kuch aur bol raha hai. We all must protest, seek justice. I also want to know what happened with Sushant but what is this circus happening?” questions the actor.
Meanwhile, given how the leisure trade is anyway going via a tough patch with shoots being affected resulting from the pandemic, Kaushik is trying ahead to renew work, however not for the sake of it. She isn’t in any rush to take up simply something that comes her manner.

After doing a show like FIR for eight years, I don’t want to be a part of any regressive content. No one has yet offered me anything reasonably interesting, which would coerce me to get ready with my sanitisers, 10 packs of masks, and get going,” she tells us.
Asked about the virus scare and the indisputable fact that many solid and crew members on a number of reveals have examined optimistic, is she nonetheless snug stepping out for work?
Kaushik admits that although all these information have made her cautious, she is all for work to proceed with all crucial precautions in place.
“How are we forgetting that the government have requested us to be responsible in going atmanirbhar for survival? Forget wearing masks, many aren’t even following social distancing norms. Public gatherings are happening every other day. It’s strange that fingers are always being pointed towards the entertainment industry. Why are cases reported on sets of shows being highlighted, while people flouting Covid-19 norms ignored? In fact, TV shoots are happening in a systematic way by following precautions. Let them do their work please,” she concludes.
