Veteran actor Anupam Kher recently spoke about his rapport with Sushant Singh Rajput, and also talked about Mahesh Bhatt’s connection to the SSR case.
Sushant was not into drugs
Mr. Kher said: “The more I see his fitness, the more I see his carefree videos, the more I think: why will he commit suicide? It was not an overdose of drugs, he was not a druggie, it was not… So you are seeing videos from as recently as January 2020. I want to reach out to the millions of people who are lonely, go out and reach out to people who are quiet. I want to address mental health issues, but I feel we need closure in this case.”
Anupam Kher reacts to Mahesh Bhatt’s connection
Mahesh Bhatt was drawn into the case after he allegedly said that Sushant was ‘going the Parveen Babi way’. Regarding this, Anupam Kher said: “He is a person who likes to give advice, and he has given me advice so many times when I’ve reached out to him. Maybe the advice is right now being construed in such a manner that it is looking very strange and suspicious, but I think he doesn’t need my help, he will deal with his battles.”
He further added: “I am thankful to him for what he has done for me. Till he one day comes and tells me, or till he is proven otherwise, I will want to give him the benefit of the doubt, only because of the background that I come from. I am not blind, but I will not say anything. I have been taught by my parents and grandparents to not bite the hands that feed. I am grateful to him.”
