New Delhi:

The social media account of the impact of the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput on the industry he belonged to changed dramatically a day later, after Mr. Rajput’s funeral. Actresses Kriti Sanon and Shraddha Kapoor, Mr. Rajput’s co-stars in the movies Raabta and Chhichhore, were among the few members of the cinema fraternity to attend the last rites. Shortly after, Twitter was inundated with a flood of tweets praising the two stars for making their actions count, rather than words. Just a day ago, however, the two had been ashamed online for not posting tributes to Sushant Singh Rajput on social media.

Kriti Sanon’s sister Nupur revealed on Instagram that she had been harassed and abused for the silence. “You are so heartless,” said Kriti Sanon, said his sister.

Twitter has now changed its mind about the actresses – after the funeral photos were posted, many noted that social media quickly tried Kriti Sanon and Shraddha Kapoor.

Actress Rhea Chakraborty, a close friend of Sushant Singh Rajput, was photographed at the hospital which performed the autopsy before the funeral. Ms. Chakraborty disabled comments on her Instagram account after the death of Mr. Rajput; she did not escape abuse on Twitter, but, like Kriti Sanon and Shraddha Kapoor, is now hailed online.

The funeral footage is revealing – almost none of the Bollywood figures were present, despite the fact that they said they were shocked and heartbroken by the death of Sushant Singh Rajput. In addition to Ms. Sanon and Ms. Kapoor, the funeral included actors Vivek Oberoi, Ranvir Shorey and Varun Sharma, and filmmaker Abhishek Kapoor, who directed Mr. Rajput in two films, including his debut Kai Po Che!.

Ranvir Shorey and a handful of members of the film fraternity denounced their colleagues on Twitter in separate messages, mostly veiled. Mr. Shorey powerfully tweeted on how “Legacy Privilege” Helped Create “Bollywood Guardians”:

In a blistered tweet, actor Nikhil Dwivedi accused his colleagues of “hypocrisy” – the funeral photos warrant it.

Neither Ranvir Shorey nor Nikhil Dwivedi gave a name; however, the dots are easy to join. Filmmaker Karan Johar, who wrote about blaming himself for not being in contact with Sushant Singh Rajput for a year, and actress Alia Bhatt followed the whole day Monday on Twitter; social media both pointed out that Ms. Bhatt spoke disdainfully of Sushant Singh Rajput on Mr. Johar’s show Koffee with Karan – to which Mr. Rajput was never invited despite his numerous successes on screen.

Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead Sunday at his Mumbai home; police say he died by suicide and investigate.
