Simi Garewal: A ‘powerful’ person has viciously tried to destroy my career

Mumbai, July 19 (IANS) Veteran actress Simi Garewal says a “powerful” person had viciously tried to destroy her career, but she stayed silent.

She got encouragement to open up about her own experience after actress Kangana Ranaut made sensational statements following the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

“I applaud #KanganaRanaut who is braver & bolder than I am. Only I know how a ‘powerful’ person has viciously tried to destroy my career. I stayed silent. Because I am not so brave… @KanganaOffical,” Simi, popular for starring in films like “Mera Naam Joker” and “Karz”, tweeted.

“I don’t know what all of you felt after watching #KanganaSpeaksToArnab ..but it has left me quite depressed..I’m distraught at what #SushantSingRajput endured .. and also what many ‘outsiders’ go through in Bollywood.. it must change!”

Simi feels that Sushant’s death maybe the “harbinger of an awakening in Bollywood”.

“When George Floyd was killed in America it set forth an awakening. In the same way #SushantSingRajput ‘s death maybe the harbinger of an awakening in Bollywood,” she wrote.

Meanwhile, Kangana had said in a recent interview: “Eighteen brands dropped me within 2 months. Maybe I didn’t have the thought of killing myself but definitely shaving my head off and disappearing.”

“My relatives didn’t let their children meet me because you turned me into a nymphomaniac. Called me so many things in public. As a girl, having a marriage and a child is no more an option for me. They turned Sushant also into a rapist. How will he go back to Bihar’ Small cities don’t value money, they value respect,” she said, reports republicworld.com.

Sushant was found hanging at his residence on June 14. The postmortem report stated that the actor committed suicide. The case is still being investigated by Mumbai Police.

She is 15, and comes from a village with no electricity. He is 20, and hails from a lower middle-class family with bare access to daily resources. Together, they are the salsa dance duo Bad Salsa, and are winning global fans after impressing judges on the international reality show, “America’s Got Talent”. The Indian duo of Sonali Majumdar and Sumanth Maroju aspire to be international stars and win laurels and accolades for India with their salsa groove. Their tryst with fame started when they won “India’s Got Talent” season four in 2012. Sonali also participated in “Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions”. “I come from a distant village near the Bangladesh border where there was no electricity. My father is a farmer who used to earn approximately Rs 80 per day and had a tough time raising the family. After ‘India’s Got Talent’, the village came into limelight and eventually electricity supply was made available. Now we own some land, and have built a house for our family,” Sonali told IANS, looking back at the challenges in her dance journey. Sumanth’s family broke many shackles to help him realize his dream. “In my lower middle-class family, dancing was never considered a profession. My family broke barriers and stereotypes to keep my dreams going. My father is a railway employee with bare access to daily resources but has always supported our family in every way possible. We now reside in a flat in Bhubaneswar and our standard of living has increased,” Sumanth said. Looking back at the start of the duo, Sumanth shared: “Our sir Bivash Chowdhury paired us in 2012 to participate in ‘India’s Got Talent’. His decision forever changed our lives.” “We just focused on working hard with a positive intention of doing great work and followed our sir’s instructions. Taking part in such a renowned show was always a distinct dream but Bivash sir made it possible for us. He has shaped us into who we are today. While rehearsing our only aim is to keep getting better so we can constantly provide electrifying performances,” he said. Full report on our website.
