In an attempt to connect the dots and find out why a rising star like Sushant Singh Rajput ended his life, the police have been diligently trying to solve the case, which witnessed another development on 17th June when actress Rhea Chakraborty, the late actor’s rumored girlfriend, was interrogated for over 9 hours.
While Rhea Chakraborty arrived at the Bandra Police station with her father, he wasn’t allowed to accompany her during the interrogation. As per reports, she was the first person to be interrogated as in the last few months, she was “the closest to Sushant”.
Rhea reportedly confirmed the status of her relationship with Sushant Singh Rajput
They were staying together at Sushant’s Carter Road penthouse, which the actor had rented along with his friend, Siddharth Pitani. Rhea’s phone was scanned for all the pictures and videos of them together. They were also planning to buy a property as well, as revealed by their broker.
“She admitted that they did plan to get married by the end of 2020,” as shared by sources.
Did they break up?
The police were suspicious about the fact that just a few days before Sushant Singh Rajput committed suicide, Rhea Chakraborty had moved out with her bags. But when questioned, she refuted the possibility that they broke up.
“It seems she informed the police how they had a fight and she left. She showed the text messages exchanged after that between her and Sushant and also told them that they did speak over calls,” the sources shared.
As per reports, she was the last person Sushant called before his death, but Rhea didn’t pick up the call.
Rhea was disliked by Sushant Singh Rajput’s family and friends
There have been several reports of Rhea Chakraborty having a tiff with Sushant’s family and friends. For instance, the reason for which she allegedly moved out of the penthouse was her unhappiness with the presence of Sushant’s flatmate and friend Siddharth Patani, whom she wanted to leave.
Sushant’s family wasn’t exactly fond of her either. She allegedly shared with the police that while they somewhat accepted her when Sushant was alive, they “expressed their reservation about her presence at the funeral”.
Rhea was reportedly the only person who stuck with Sushant after he was diagnosed with clinical depression
She was questioned about the late actor’s behavioural changes and she shared that though he had “turned towards meditation and yoga”, there would be days “when he would feel extremely low and upset”. “She also shared that he would refuse to take his medication and she tried to coax him to take them but to no avail,” the source shared.
Sushant Singh Rajput apparently had projects that would have kept him busy till 2021
He and Rhea Chakraborty were supposed to work on Rumi Jaffrey’s next before the COVID-19 outbreak delayed the filming. But Sushant allegedly had enough projects and was in talks for signing more films.
