While the Sushant Singh Rajput case continues to get murkier and new details come to light, the late actor's lawyer, Priyanka Khimani, has opened up on various facets of the actor's life, his business matters and girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty's role in his life. Khimani was hired by Sushant in early 2019 to look after his legal and business affairs. She revealed that it was his sister Priyanka who first introduced them. 

"I met Sushant sometime early last year, my role as his lawyer was to look at his legal and business affairs. He was one of those clients who had such varied interests. He was ambitious and he had a lot of interesting things on his wish list," Khimani told India Today's Rajdeep Sardesai. 

Speaking about girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty's involvement in setting up companies, Khimani revealed that "three people are equal shareholders". For the unversed, Sushant had set up two companies with Rhea and her brother Showik Chakraborty as investors. These companies have now come under the scanner as Sushant's father has alleged that close to Rs 15 crore was siphoned off.

Addressing Rhea and Showik's involvement, the late actor's personal lawyer Khimani said, "Any company requires the minimum role of individuals as director and promoters for being setup. At that point of time, given that the both of them were together, it was a question of setting something up. I don’t think for Sushant the goal was to create a business partnership. For Sushant, it was that this is the business that I want to do. It didn’t matter who he did it with. And since there were certain people in his life, it was simpler to set it up in this fashion." 

She further added, "If you see the records, three people are equal shareholders and everyone has put money as investment in the most routine manner one would set up a company. We took decisions that were sound and thought through, but we didn’t take decisions that would impact anybody in the larger scheme. Rhea and her brother had invested to get the business kickstarted." 

However, Khimani clarified that she never advised the late actor on his finances. But was only his legal advisor. She also revealed that the Enforcement Directorate has not yet questioned her but the Mumbai Police did interview her. "I was one of the first people to sit with the Mumbai Police. I have given all information that was needed and cooperated in investigation," she said.

This bloody nexus between Bollywood cabal, the underworld Mafia & the Maha Govt ensured that Disha & Sushant did not collaborate on his App & Production house, and create a huge brand for themselves. These 2 murders have everything to do with Disha & Sushant's future plans, which was aborted because of greed, power & money. Same is the case with Sridevi & Sunanda Pushkar case. All these murderers are roaming scot-free. Republic TV & TimesNow are going to be busy for a while longer. But ultimately, if the CBI works diligently to get to the bottom of the truth every one of the victims of these brutal, ghastly crimes will get caught..and ' justice will be served'.

His family is showing this greed now. His father said , he asked for flight tickets to visit ssr but no one provided. Do you really ask for money to visit your son when he is not well. If he was so poor then ssr must have transferred some amount as if he was so generous and not money minded. Definitely ssr was not on good terms with his father , who has now filed case for Money laundering not for his death. End game is money here . His family never cared about him and now everyone is behind his money. His father and sisters never spoke earlier on his death and now filing cases for money . Why does a son need permission to meet his family .this is all bogus excuse given by family

Everyday we r getting cooked up story from rhea's team. If she so called very genuine n loyal person to sushant then y she missing for 10 days???? Why she didn't defend herself from all the allegations put on her head??? All the staffs she hired for sushant giving inconsistent statements Y??? Just to support rhea don't give ur statement blindly. Challenge the media by throwing correct evidence rather than with useless comments about sushant n his family. Dare to face the truths!!!

Sushant's biggest mistake of life is rhea..I fail to understand how can a intelligent,successful A grade actor trust a C grade actress who has done few side cheap roles in movies..She doesn't even match his standards..He was trapped by rhea and her family..No one even knew them before his death..black magic was done on him to control him that is the reason rhea managed his finances and took all decisiins...Poor sushant lost his life due to rhea

Anonymous 2 months ago

The very fact that the kamini women appeared in india today with rajdeep sardesai proves she is hired by rhea herself... God this case is bigger than what we thought it was...he was incapacitated long before his death..they must have had forged his signature... he was in a evil web of people...may be for his patent or coding or some big ideas...and rhea cannot do it all by herself... very big group is involved certainly...bullywood must be destroyed completely.

This comment is in context with message Rhea posted what SSR said about his sister Priyanka “evil & Manipulative” . We all know that Rhea was answering his phone calls n his messages as she had put him sedated with high dose of antidepressants. Many individuals testified this issue. Since she had his phone, she wrote this message about his sister Priyanka and not SSR, bcos he always praised his sisters n was full of humility towards them.

Pinkvilla please post this. Can this lawyer also tell us why if she knew Sushant was mentally depressed and bipolar, then why did she encourage him to open companies? I don't get it..

No one should fight on Sushant's death but we must stand collectively in a order to know what was the exact reason behind his death. CBI enquiry is the only platform who can serve justice apart of political agendas.

Anonymous 2 months ago

Could she also explain that if he was bipolar and as serious as Rhea claims, why the lawyer thought it was a good decision to start companies in this condition? If she did guide him in the wrong manner and encouraged him to open companies adding to the already mental stress Rhea claims he used to have, should she also be liable to answer?

I read that news too but ppl seem to forget this is Covid time and wearing gloves is actually done by some ppl in addition to wearing masks. Given the circumstances, I dont see wearing gloves as something suspicious. But yes, ppl could have been more vigilant in who was being let in/out.

The CM and Police seem hand in glove with criminals in film city and their mafia! I am convinced that those who committed the double murder /triple murder, (if it’s true that a member of SSR’s staff is still missing and 2 ambulances were summoned that day), were so confident of getting protection from their Murder Management Team (of Local Govt+ police +paid media) had such a long record of successful cover-ups, that they cared a damn about getting exposed later. They were coming/ going coolly because for them it was just another murder in their long and sinister Record of successful Murder Management that would simply add another feather in the cap of these murderous Monsters!

First of all, he was not an average actor, he was excellent actor, who took risks to lead life on his own terms and was super successful by any standards. Truth will definitely come out. Having depression is not big issue. But to overcome it right treatment and family support and imotional healing is required. If at all he had depression issue which is still not certain, it seems proper treatment was not given, family was not allowed to approach which must have worsen the situation and close supervision about medication was also not there. A super genius, super talente, super human being, who was the Jaan of his family lost due to all wrong people and wrong management of his life. He and his family deserve justice.

How pathetic you guys are.

Shame on you guys. I swear you all have a guilt inside you and know every single story of sushant's case. There is only one thing for all of you. Be a brave men don't be a pussy. Shame on you.

Sushant had a history of mental illness including his time at Delhi College of Engineering. He wanted to start a technology business and no body wanted to partner with him. He developed an inferiority complex looking at his friends from engineering becoming super successful doing meaningful stuff in industry while he was just an average actor. All those stories will come out soon from the Alumni association.
