Sushant Singh Rajput's death has possibly left an unimaginable void in the industry. But it has also left all of us with some pertinent questions. A few years ago, when Sushant was shooting for Dil Bechara, there were several stories naming him in the #MeToo movement and allegedly accusing him of misbehaving with his co-star and debutante heroine Sanjana Sanghi. With three days left to the digital release of the Mukesh Chhabra directorial, we caught up with Sanjana and addressed the issue straight up.

Sanjana shares,"Everyone thinks only Sushant was the one troubled there. But I was equally troubled. We knew our truth - I know what he meant to me, he knew what he meant to me and that's what matters. We were on set shooting everyday. When one or two articles come, then you don't pay heed to it and let it pass. But when it becomes rampant, and there are articles which are baseless, I have no respect for them or the people writing them or the ones believing them." 

I know what he meant to me, he knew what he meant to me and that's what matters.
Sanjana Sanghi

She alleges that the whole issue was concocted and none of the things mentioned were true. She confidently tells us that this episode never affected the friendship they shared with each other. "Now, when people will see both of us, they will know our truth. Nothing changed between us because there was nothing. All that happened was how should we make them believe the truth? Imagine how sad the state of affairs is for two people who actually adore each other to have to sit back and prove this." She further reminisces the whole incident and asserts, "He asked me, 'Should I put out these chats?' I was like, 'Go for it, maybe that would help.' He then put it out but people still refused to believe us. Then, I came out and spoke about it. The girl who has supposedly accused the boy is giving a clarification and even that doesn't work. That makes sit up and think, 'What kind of a society are we living in?Are we just willing to believe a certain reality? Why can't people accept that we really like each other and are working together to make a beautiful film.'. I was too young and inexperienced to cope with it."

The girl who has supposedly accused the boy is giving a clarification and even that doesn't work.
Sanjana Sanghi

After his death when the whole scandal was brought back in news, a particular section of the Twitterati and social media population targeted her for taking a few weeks to come out with the truth. We asked her the same, and she even didn't dodge the question. She reveals, "They hurt me because they've troubled me in the past and it reminds me of a time that was uncomfortable. They see it as time but they don't know our reality. If you are waiting for lies to be clarified, I don't want to perpetuate that culture. I don't want to feel that there's a need to talk about every rumour that is out. So I didn't take time with the truth. I need not have clarfiied anything in the first place because nothing happened. He was the greatest co-star one could have and I have every ounce of love and respect for Sushant as he did for me."

Reiterating that nothing of the sort happened during the entire filming, the 23-year-old actress reasons, "If something had happened, we wouldn't have gone ahead with our Paris schedule, finished our film, dubbed for it. It wouldn't have been like this. I urge people to only believe the truth, though that's not fed to them and it's sad."

Karan Johar, Salman Khan, Shahrukh Khan, Ameer Khan and Shaid Kapoor among others should be kicked out of bollywood and India. Bear in mind these 3 Khans were my favouries. Truth and Justice must prevail. (Saif Ali Khan had personally issued a written apology to Sushant Singh before his demise).

Bollywood has become worse. Earlier I did not thought that much but Sushant's demise has changed something inside me. I was not very fond of TV or cinema. I once went to my home from hostel in holidays and saw 'Pavitra Rishta' for 1 minute and instantly recognized the talent of Sushant and Ankita.The first thing which came to my mind was that they were better than movie actors. I can control anything else but one thing I will make sure is that I will never waste my money watching films of third grade caliber like Karan Johar and Aditya Chopra. There is so much of flith in Bollywood these days. It's full of cheap third grade talent, poor scripts etc. Most of the movies are like soft porn movies. I turned towards regional cinema and find it much better. The movies reflect the character of the nation and Bollywood is presenting a very poor image of India. No doubt there are few good movies and artists but they are not given proper due like Sushant. RIP brother you will be missed!

Honestly I believe there is no more scope for sushant's death to be considered a suicide any more, he was too intelligent, too passionate and too loving to have taken such a step. My condolences to his family and Sanjana. One day the murderers will be caught. Sanjana must be going through a lot having to deal with allegations against the best, talented actor in the world. Love you Sush x RIP x

He didn't do suicide, it was a planned murder. The marks on his neck if seen carefully are not from hanging but someone attacking in stealth mode. CCTv was off on that particular day. And his housemaid even said that he had a good breakfast before going in his room. Its a work of an assassin hired by the mafia's.
