In a 2-minute-long video, shared by the official Instagram handle of Team Kangana Ranaut, Kangana says, "Sushant Singh Rajput's demise has shaken us, but some people are saying that those who have weak mind get depressed and die by suicide. I'd like to say that Sushant was a rank-holder, how can his mind be weak?"
