There is so much noise on my tweet on Sushant. Does it mean that Sushant was not popular during his life time or that he should not get justice? Certainly not. Misinterpretation should be avoided.The tweet doesnot in any way insults or belittle him.

There is a tussle between the governments of Bihar and Maharashtra regarding the matter. Maharashtra is protesting that this case does not come under the jurisdiction of Bihar due to the death of the actor in Mumbai. The Mumbai Police has so far recorded statements of 56 people, including Rajput’s sisters, his friend and actress Riya Chakraborty and some other film personalities.
Memon tweeted, “Sushant was not as famous during his lifetime as he was after his death. The amount of news that is going on in the media these days is probably more than our Prime Minister or the President of America! ” Memon said that when a crime is being investigated, confidentiality has to be maintained. Making public every incident of the process of gathering important evidence adversely affects the interest of truth and justice.
On social media response to her post, Memon later said, “There is a lot of noise on my tweet on Sushant. Does this mean that Sushant was not popular during his lifetime or that he should not get justice? Definitely not. Misinterpretation should be avoided. He has not been insulted in any way or shown to be small in the tweet. ” Maharashtra minister and NCP national spokesperson Nawab Malik said Memon’s remarks do not reflect the party’s view and the party does not endorse or approve his statement in any way.
Malik tweeted, “Majid Memon’s statement on Twitter is his personal opinion, not NCP’s. Our party does not endorse or approve his statement in any way. He is not an NCP spokesperson, which everyone should pay attention to.
