The shock of Sushant Singh Rajput's suicide on June 14 still looms large in the country. The people on social media blasted the industry kids and filmmakers who repeatedly worked with star sons and daughters. The debate around Nepotism continues to happen on news channels and social media.
The matter is Sub Judice and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has stepped for further inquiry in the case.
The one name that has come up is that of Sooraj Pancholi. And talking to India Today in an interview, he broke his silence on the same and said, "I am trying to stay positive right now. You know, as strong and as positive as I can be, I don't discuss this with my family because I know they are already in a lot of stress because of me, thinking about me all the time."
Sooraj Pancholi: My mother thinks that I'm going to harm myself
He added, "In fact, my mother thinks that I'm going to harm myself. And she has spoken to me a couple of times. Even after Sushant's death, she spoke to me saying, 'Sooraj, whatever it is, if there's anything in your heart please come and talk to us. Don't be quiet.' I'm not a very talkative person when it comes to my problems. I don't discuss with my family because I know they're stressed because of me"
He also stated how it has not been easy for him to get work in the industry and how he had his fair share of struggles too.
Pancholi stated, "People think I have just gotten out of bed and walked on a film set which is not true. I have worked very hard. Starting as an assistant director in two films. I have done my acting course, I have my acting degree. I have done everything possible to get my first film. So, this is my passion and I'm not going to give up that easy."
He revealed how the people who have been targeting him may force him to commit suicide.
"And these people who are talking about me should have some sense and should have some kind of humanity. Because yeh fair nahi hai. They are destroying my life. I don't know whether Sushant committed suicide or not. I don't know. But these people will definitely drive me to commit suicide. I would like to say that," the actor said.
