One of the talented and aspiring actors of Indian cinema tragically committed suicide on 14 June 2020. Since his death, some fans have been mourning his untimely demise, while other fans have developed outrage against the nepotistic entertainment industry.

Several reports claimed that the actor took his life after suffering from depression, and being left out from the film industry. Sushant Singh Rajput was a well-appreciated actor in the Hindi film industry. Fans expressed their outrage after realizing that the film industry has been run by a powerful group of filmmakers who supports nepotism.

After his death, there have been debates around the internet that it is hard and troublesome for outsiders like Sushant Singh Rajput to survive in the Indian entertainment industry. Following the widespread debate, #UnsubscribeTSeries has been trending in Twitter India. The unusual trend was soon noticed by the biggest individual YouTuber of the world, PewDiePie (real name Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg).

PewDiePie once had a widely popular battle against the Indian music company to become the biggest YouTube channel in the whole wide world. Ultimately, the record-label outperformed PewDiePie and gained the spot of most subscribed YouTube channel. After PewDiePie lost to the film production company, T-series, he reportedly took a break from YouTube for some time.

And now, after #UnsubscribeTSeries resurfaced, he talked about the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. PewDiePie uploaded a new video yesterday titled Cancel PewDiePie NOW!, where he talked about the trending topic and death of Sushant Singh Rajput.

PewDiePie reacted to the trend and death after he received a fan submission in his subreddit. He gave his condolences and mourned at Rajput’s untimely demise. He also referenced Rajput’s catchy speech at Avenues 2016, IIT Bombay. PewDiePie then went to say that the actor seemed like a good guy and he wished his soul to rest in peace. He also expressed how sad he felt with the death of the actor.

PewDiePie then added that a film industry needs such actors like Sushant Singh Rajput. However, he didn’t talk much about #UnsubscribeTSeries. He mentioned that he doesn’t like to discuss that now because he has moved from that subject.
