The whole narrative around Sushant Singh Rajput's death had taken a 180-degree turn in a matter of days when his friends and family had smelled a foul play. Sushant's father KK Singh had filed an FIR in Bihar, accusing Sushant's girlfriend, Rhea Chakraborty of abetting Sushant's suicide, among several other accusations like mental and financial harassment. The Bihar government had requested for CBI enquiry, and on August 5, 2020, SC had accepted the plea. The Centre's senior second-most law officer, Tushar Mehta had informed, "Union of India has in principle accepted the request by Bihar to have a CBI probe. Notification regarding the same will be issued by the end of day today." (Recommended Read: Shah Rukh Khan And Gauri Khan's Combined Net Worth, The Ace Designer Isn't Far Behind Her Star Hubby)
In an interview with ET Times TV, Sushant Singh Rajput's friend, Smita Parikh has made some very strong revelations about his girlfriend, Rhea Chakraborty. FYI, Smita and Sushant had been friends since 2017, when Sushant had first visited her literature festival as a guest speaker and had spoken around the changes needed in the education system and artificial intelligence. After that, Smita and Sushant had gotten along very well, and Smita had even become friends with Sushant's sister and brother-in-law. Scroll down to know what all she has to say!
Smita spoke about when had she started losing touch with Sushant and what were the plausible reasons behind it. She said, "I began losing touch with Sushant around August 2019 (till then, they were very regularly in touch). We last interacted when we exchanged greetings in Diwali 2019. After that, there was no response from his side. I wished him on his birthday through Rhea Chakraborty's phone too when I texted my best wishes to him, but got no reply- neither from him nor her. I think he had changed his number by then and I don't think it was conveyed to him."
On being asked when and where had she first met Rhea, Smita said, "At Sushant's house when we were doing some poetry exchange and dinner at his place. Rhea was present there with his manager Shruti. I was informed there that this girl (Shruti) would manage his work hereafter and she had been brought by Rhea." Smita also pointed out that Sushant Singh Rajput's sister, Meetu Singh and Rhea had never met. According to Rhea, she would leave whenever Sushant's family would arrive (in the house). Smita said, "This was told to me by Rhea, she said nahin toh jhagde ho jaate the. They (Sushant's family) had accepted that Sushant likes Rhea and wants to marry her. In today's times even if you see red flags, can you do anything about it? They had warned him enough, but maybe Sushant had made up his mind by then."
Smita was asked if she smells a foul play in the whole facade, to which she replied, "There's so much overwriting on Sushant's autopsy report. I asked Meetu (Sushant's sister) if she saw him hanging. She said 'No', he was already lying on the bed (when she entered the room)." Smita also emphasised how there are contradictory statements on who brought his body down and who gave him medicines and which ones. She said, "There's too much cover-up and mystery."
Addressing the rumours of Sushant being bipolar, Smita also pointed out that if Sushant was bipolar and depressed, how come he had formed a company in January 2020, how come he was working for the welfare of COVID-19 victims in April and doing advanced meditation with his sister in June. Smita was asked if she was in touch with Rhea, and she said "Yeah, I had Rhea's number. After Rhea came into Sushant's life, she would pick up his phone and even coordinate our meetings. So Sushant was sort of gradually disconnecting and Rhea was taking over. If only I knew what was going on, I would have personally gone over. I think he must have been given a phone without 'his contacts'." (Also Read: Shoaib Ibrahim Surprises Wife Dipika Kakar By Baking A Delicious Chocolate Cake On Her 34th Birthday)
Smita further alleged that she had even tried to get in touch with Sushant through Rhea, but all in vain. She said, "I would call Rhea, but she didn't pick up. I even left messages to connect Sushant and me but nothing happened." Smita ended her conversation saying how the outcome of the investigation won't matter in the end because Sushant is gone. In her words, "The inquiry will happen, the justice will come- but we have lost Sushant."
