Sushant Singh Rajput started his acting career with Television and rose to fame with his character ‘Manav’ in ‘Pavitra Rishta’. The late actor has been in good terms with the director of the serial, Kushal Zaveri since then. Recently, the director took to his Instagram and shared the ‘Dil Bechara’ actor’s state of mind during the #MeToo allegations that were alleged against him during the movie’s shoot. He recollected how Sushant was the most vulnerable during the #MeToo movement in October 2018.
In his Instagram post, Zaveri said that he stayed with SSR from July 2018 to February 2019 and shed light on how vulnerable the actor was in October 2019 when he was falsely accused in the #MeToo movement. He also revealed that the ‘Kai Po Che!’ actor couldn’t sleep for 4 nights and was waiting for his co-star Sanjana Sanghi to clear the allegations. The electronic media was also targeting him without any solid proof and finally, when Sanghi cleared the proclamations, it seemed like a hard-earned victory.
Kushal Zaveri’s post read, “I stayed with Sushant from July 2018 to Feb 2019. The most vulnerable I have seen him was during the #MeToo movement in Oct 2018…the electronic media was targeting him without any solid proof..We tried out best to contact Sanjana Sanghi but it seems she was in USA and was not available for a comment. (Strange coincidence).”
He added, “Sushant knew back of his mind who was targetting him but didn’t have proof to call them out … I remember how sushant couldn’t sleep for 4 nights waiting for sanjana to clear all the allegations … Finally she cleared his name on the 5th day and it all seemed like a hard earned victory as if the battle was over …”
Along with this post, the director’s caption read, “I am putting this here out not only for closure sake but to also find out if the people sushant thought were targetting him Were actually behind this ! #justiceforsushantsinghrajput”
Also, while interacting with PinkVilla last month, Sanjana Sanghi said, “Everyone thinks only Sushant was the one troubled there. But I was equally troubled. We knew our truth – I know what he meant to me, he knew what he meant to me and that’s what matters. We were on set shooting everyday. When one or two articles come, then you don’t pay heed to it and let it pass. But when it becomes rampant, and there are articles which are baseless, I have no respect for them or the people writing them or the ones believing them.”
