Smriti Irani, a union minister, broke down in tears as she recalled the day Sushant Singh Rajput passed away. She added that she comforted his co-star and friend Amit Sadh.
Recently, Union Minister Smriti Irani disclosed that she experienced emotional outbursts on the day of Sushant Singh Rajput’s passing in June 2020. She had come to know the young man while they were both working on TV shows in Mumbai, and she regretted that she had not had the opportunity to call him. She also reportedly said to him, “Please don’t kill yourself,” according to the former actor. She then provided advice to Sushant’s co-star Amit Sadh, who was also experiencing grief over the loss of his friend.
Smriti Irani collaborated with the actor for a masterclass on the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) stage in Goa in addition to working in the same Mumbai studios as television actors when she served as the Union Minister for Information and Broadcasting in 2017. She is currently in charge of Minority Affairs and Women & Child Development.
Sushant, 34, was discovered dead in his Mumbai apartment in June 2020. After his autopsy, the Mumbai Police determined that the cause of death was suicide. After accusing Sushant’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty and her family of abusing his funds and supplying him with narcotics, his family asked for additional inquiries into the situation. A few months later, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) took up the investigation.
