Late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s sister Priyanka Singh recently posted a picture of herself with her late brother on Instagram. In the post, Priyanka emphasised that no film on Sushant should be made until “justice is served.”

Priyanka captioned her photo, “I firmly believe that no movie on SSR should be made, at least, not until justice is served. This is my promise to my brother, artist, genius Sushant Singh Rajput. Secondly, who has the capability to enact SSR’s handsome, innocent and dynamic persona on screen, I wonder!”

She went on to add that it would be misleading to expect that anybody “from this insecure film industry” would have the courage and integrity to truthfully portray Sushant. “Outrageously unique story where he always followed his heart; left the most dominant and dynastic of production houses, at the peak, on his own terms. Lastly, my brother wanted to do his own biopic if it is ever made, and with the emergence of AI technology, there is no reason why this can’t be a reality in near future,” she concluded.

Priyanka shared the same post on Twitter, which received mixed reactions. A user asked her, “Why don't you first move to Supreme Court to know the status of CBI Investigation in his case? What has stopped you from doing so? You are Family.”

Another chimed in, “We are with you, always. But please, put this passion into going to the Supreme Court and asking for an update from CBI. We have sent letters to all the authorities and we are planning on emailing them on Sushant's birthday but we need all guns blazing to win this war.”

Some, however, were in favour of her advice. “A story is incomplete without climax. The story of Sushant is incomplete until the real culprits are caught. Let there be a climax, we all are waiting for the climax to happen, only then it would be worth watching and making a movie on him,” tweeted a user.

Sushant was found dead in his apartment on June 14, 2020. His death was ruled a suicide by the Mumbai Police but the case was subsequently transferred to the Central Bureau of Investigation after mounting public pressure. His family accused Rhea Chakraborty, who was dating Sushant at the time of his death, of abetment and misappropriating his funds, among other things.
