Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut recently revealed some shocking facts about Sushant Singh Rajput. Earlier reports and investigations have confirmed that the actor was in depression and was taking medication for it. But neither the director Rumi Jaffery nor the producer Vashu Bhagnani who were supposed to be working with Sushant on his next movie with Rhea Chakraborty has said that the actor was unstable on the sets.
Rather his co-stars of previous movies including Sara Ali Khan and Shraddha Kapoor have said that he was very supportive. Even Jacqueline Fernandez who worked with him in Drive which later on released on webspace recently stated that Sushant was always eager to help people. In her Instagram post the Race 3 actress says, “He’s going has left a void, everywhere and with everyone.. he taught me to ALWAYS be there for people, whenever I was down or confused, he never hesitated to help.. watching his film is not going to be easy for me but I know he’s going to light up the screen so beautifully and that will give me some peace.”
Sanjay Raut Says, “I Was Told He Was Unstable”
Saamana is a Marathi newspaper backed by Shiv Sena. In its editorial Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut has said that after the biopic on Balasaheb Thackeray they were planning to come up with another biopic based on the life of a senior politician and former minister George Fernandes. Raut stated that Sushant was one of the few actors who were shortlisted for the lead role. But they were told that even though Sushant is a very good actor he is mentally unstable, behaves weirdly on the sets which affect the working of other co-stars. Hence the team did not approach Sushant for the role in the George Fernandes biopic.
Last year Sushant was targeted by the #Metoomovement when reports of his misbehavior with “Dil Bechara” co-star Sanjana Sanghi surfaced. But the actress refused all these rumors and cleared the Kedarnath actor of all these allegations. She even shared an emotional post on Sushant indicating that no such thing happened between her and Sushant on the sets.

Whoever said time helps heal all wounds, was lying. Some feel like they’re being ripped open, again and again, and bleeding – Of moments that now will forever remain memories, Of laughs together that were but will never again be, Of questions that will remain unanswered, Of disbelief, that only keeps growing But these wounds also contain a film, a gift that everyone is yet to see, Wounds that contain dreams, plans, and desires for our country’s children, their education and their future that will be fulfilled, Wounds that contain a passion for an endless creative zest for every artist there is, Wounds that contain the hope for a world that promises to uphold honesty, integrity, kindness and embraces individuality – rid of all toxicity, I vow that I will do everything to make sure each of these dreams are fulfilled, like you always wanted me to. Except, you’d promised we’d do it all together. . . . #SushantSinghRajput #ThinkingOfYou
Since Sanjana Sanghi was his last co-star, her statement is being considered as very important regarding the actual mental condition of Sushant and whether the rumors about his weird behavior on the film set were true. The Bandra police have called Sanjana to record her statement on 29th June. Hopefully, the truth will be known soon.

. . You gave me a forever, within a limited number of days, and for that. I’m forever grateful. – our beloved novel, The Fault In Our Stars A forever of learnings, and of memories. I refreshed my web pages a 100 times hoping I’m reading some sort of horrible joke. I’m not equipped to process any of this. I don’t think I ever will be. I’m definitely not equipped to articulate my feelings, this is me failing, but trying. Sushant and I were to save all our anecdotes, moments and stories from the time we spent shooting together up until the release of our film, so we had kept them in our stomachs all this while. After 2 years of seemingly all the possible difficulties one single film can face, with all sorts of crap constantly being written, and being relentlessly pursued – we were supposed to FINALLY watch the film, our labour of love, together – my first, and what you told me you believed was your best film yet. Amidst your journey, and in the middle of 16 hour long shoot days, you somehow found a way and had a desire to yell out to me from the opposite side of set screaming “Rockstar, itni achi acting thodi na karte hain paagal!” ; To guide me over things big & small through our film’s process, To tell me to conserve my energy on set; To discuss even the smallest nuance you thought could change the narrative of a scene and would whole heartedly accept my disagreement; To discuss ways in which we could together forge a brighter educational future for the children of India. You were a force Manny, and you always will be. We’re going to spend an eternity to try and make sense of what you’ve left us behind with, and I personally never will be able to. I simply wish you never left us behind in the first place. Just know, you have a country full of millions, looking up at you, smiling at you, thankful for you. As you smile back at us, from up above. The fact that you get to spend the rest of your time by your mother’s side, I know you gives the only happiness you wanted in the world. #RIPSushantSinghRajput
