Kangana shares Sushant's quote on 'Insider Vs Outsider'

Sushant Singh Rajput in an interview said, "When you’re successful as an outsider, you’re discussed but in a very hushed tone. That’s about it. But when you are an insider and you succeed, it’s multiplied by ten and if you lose, it’s divided by ten.” Furthermore, Sushant's quote read, "Now I’ve created my own markers of success. At that time, I was young in the industry, I was looking for it. That validation. Now I don’t, so it doesn’t hurt." 

To this, Team Kangana Ranaut on their Twitter handle wrote, "Please read discrimination of being an outsider Shushant faced in his own words, this is exactly what Kangana said it’s not that after being banned he gave up, he gave biggest hit but they killed it through powerful PR..”  [sic]
