There are many new updates coming in the Sushant Singh Rajput case. Yesterday, Rhea Chakraborty revealed that the actor was upset when his name came up in the #MeToo movement. In an interview to NDTV, she said, "I feel the MeToo allegations are what started the pressure. He believed someone was behind it. He used to refer to the people as 'them'. I don't know who they are. He believed someone was behind Sanjana Sanghi."
Rhea added, "It is a difficult industry. The ups are up and the downs are really low. Certain things affected him and his mental health. One of them was the MeToo allegations that were later cleared up. He is not that kind of a guy. He was the most respectful person. His co-star Sanjana Sanghi was not clearing it up. He thought it was part of a larger nexus by Rohini Iyer - his 'friend'. I have told this to the police and Enforcement Directorate."
Rhea also said that Sushant was upset about not being nominated for awards despite his good work. "Not being nominated for awards even though films made money and even though he was a brilliant performer. These are the things that upset him. He felt, what is the point if no one is taking note. Frivolous blind items. He was worried and scared of Sanjana Sanghvi before the promotions began. Today I understand as I am going through the same thing," Rhea stated.
She said that their relationship was like a fairy tale. "I still cannot believe it (his death). He was absolutely the best guy and beautiful person I have ever met. He wanted to do charity. He was the greatest boyfriend ever. He looked after me. He always advised me. I was proud of him, of how much he had achieved coming from a small town. We bonded over this. Since I am also an outsider and have grown up all across India. Our relationship was like a fairy tale. Yes, we had problems," the actress said.
She added, "People judge depression so poorly that people find it difficult to communicate. A person going through it feels misunderstood. In Sushant's case, I don't understand why he would do this. His condition had worsened in the lockdown. Contrary to what people think, people who are depressed can laugh."
Sushant was found dead on June 14 in his Bandra apartment.
