A lot is being said and written about late Sushant Singh Rajput's connection with drugs. After his demise, the Narcotics Control Bureau stepped in to investigate his death case, as well as, Bollywood's connection to drugs. As the case is again in the news as NCB filed a chargesheet against Rhea Chakraborty, Sushant Singh Rajput and Sara Ali Khan's Kedarnath co-star Nitish Bhardwaj has opened up about his experience of working with the celebrities. Sara Ali Khan is also in the news as reportedly Rhea has mentioned her name to NCB.
It was rumoured that Sara and Sushant got hooked to drugs on the sets of Kedarnath. Over this, Nitish Bhardwaj stated that he never saw Sushant or Sara on a trip. In fact, he also mentioned about his conversation with Sara about never doing drugs. He was quoted saying to Etimes, "One day, Pooja Gor was telling me about the changing environment of the television industry, and eventually, the subject veered to drugs. To this, Sara told me that she had heard there was a drug problem in the film industry too. I vividly remember telling her to stay away from it because she had a very promising career ahead of her. She assured me that she had never touched drugs and won't ever do so."
He further mentioned that Sushant used to smoke cigarette and he was quite agile for a man consumed drugs. He said, "Sushant used to smoke a cigarette but he was very agile-minded. Someone who does drugs is not agile like him, neither do they talk so intelligently. At least, that's what I think. As a rule, I don’t smoke--I have never lit up either a tobacco or drug-filled cigarette. But I know that if you smoke such a cigarette, it has a distinct smell. I had never seen Sushant and Sara with heavy eyes or on a trip; they were so normal. Sushant was in a different zone; we would talk about cosmology and the science of planets and galaxies."
Nitish Bhardwaj was also asked if he saw anything different about Sushant. To this, he said, "I never felt even once that he was not fine. Everything was normal. He told me, “Sir, aapko ghar aana padega (you'll have to come home), and I had told him, “Theek hai, main aa jaunga (Okay, I will come).”
