In its statement, the Guild defended the industry against criticism that it was a terrible place for outsiders to aspire to, a debate that has not just intensified but also polarised Bollywood since 34-year-old Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead in his home on June 14 this year.

The CBI has begun investigating Sushant Singh Rajput’s death after the Supreme Court last week ordered the agency to take over the case. The SC’s order was a part of its judgement in Sushant’s girlfriend Rhea Chakarborty’s plea to transfer the FIR in the case from Patna to Mumbai.
The Supreme Court also told the Mumbai police to assist the CBI in the probe. The CBI team arrived in Mumbai a day after the top court’s verdict on August 20.
Apart from the CBI case, the Enforcement Directorate has also registered a case against Rhea and her family members. The Mumbai Police has handed over its probe documents to the CBI. It has, however, said that it will continue with the inquiry it was conducting into the accidental death report it had filed following Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
Sushant Singh Rajput's family has expressed gratitude towards his fans and admirers for campaigning for a CBI enquiry into his death.
Sushant's sister Shweta Singh Kirti recently posted on Twitter, "Congratulations to my extended Family!! So happy... first step towards victory and unbiased investigation. #JusticeforSushantSingRajput #OurfullfaithonCBI"
