Rhea Chakraborty wanted to cheer up her rumoured boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput, so she used to call over the director Rumi Jaffery!
The actress Rhea Chakraborty was rumoured to be dating the actor Sushant Singh Rajput. She was in the police station for nine hours when she went to give her statement in the actor’s suicide case.
The duo was supposed to work together in Rumi Jaffery’s romantic comedy film. Now the director has revealed how the actress used to call him over just to cheer up Sushant.
Talking to Pinkvilla, Rumi said, “Rhea had told me about Sushant being depressed. In fact, Sushant also told me that some 5-6 months back. I had asked him many-a-times about it. But he didn’t disclose too much and I didn’t push much because I thought he might not be comfortable.”
“In fact, Rhea would call me at their place sometimes and say that sir, aap aa jao, aapke saath baithta hai toh positive energy milti hai, khush hota hai or he would come to our place. I knew he was seeing taking treatment for this and was on medication,” he added.
Earlier there were rumours around Sushant wanting to quit acting. Rumi clarified all such speculations as he said, “He never said he wanted to quit acting. And then do farming but one of his dreams was to farm alongside action and cut. He liked to stay alone, loved science, plantations, he was so intelligent. We used to talk farming because I share a mutual interest. In fact, I have a small garden at my place in Bombay where Sushant would visit whenever he would come home.”
Sushant Singh Rajput had died by suicide on June 14th at the age of 34. He had hung himself in his residence in Bandra.
