Mumbai, September 2
Actress Meera Chopra, who as soon as educated with Sushant Singh Rajput in the identical health club, has fond recollections of the late actor and describes him as an ideal gentleman. At the identical time, Meera feels dangerous about his girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty for the best way she is being being vilified by sections of media and social media though the investigation within the case continues to be happening.
“I don’t know Sushant on a personal note. We have had a professional relationship. We used to work out in the same gym a few years back and I started knowing him then. After that we connected on Instagram and would bump into each other at a few award shows,” Meera advised IANS.
“He was always very cordial. He was a perfect gentleman. Every time he saw me, he would stop, he would talk, he would ask how I was, how are things, how is work. Usually people don’t do that in this industry. He was very well mannered and simple, a genuine person. Also, he was always respectful towards others,” the actress added, remembering Sushant.
Meera additionally recalled how Sushant had texted her after her movie “Section 375” launched in September final 12 months.
“He had messaged me after my film ‘Section 375’ released. He had praised my performance and told me that he felt bad for the girl (her character in the film) even though she was not right. Similarly, I had texted him after ‘Chhichhore’ released. It was a very actor-to-actor conversation between us,” Meera revealed.
Going down reminiscence lane, the actress shared: “Something I will always maintain is that I have never met anyone in the industry as simple as he was! I will say this despite the fact that I did not know Sushant at a personal level and never made an effort to do that. His simplicity, his mannerisms, his demeanour of reaching out to people in spite of the fact that he was such a successful actor — people don’t usually do that, but he always did.” “Even in the gym, if somebody was working out in a wrong way, despite the trainer being present he would personally go across and correct the person, even if he didn’t know them. That was Sushant, such simplicity!” she recalled.
Sushant, who handed away on June 14 was a “role model” for many individuals and his premature demise has affected even those that did not know him personally, feels Meera.
“His death has affected people in a personal way. I have friends in London and America who didn’t know him at all but they are deeply affected,” the actress mentioned, including: “I am so affected by his demise that I still feel that he is somewhere and is not gone. It is so shocking. All the controversy theories going on — I just hope those are not true because he didn’t deserve this kind of death. He was a very pure and good soul.” Meera helps the continuing social media motion #JusticeforSSR by Sushant’s followers and needs the reality to return out. Talking in regards to the motion, the actress mentioned: “I really hope it goes on because if something wrong has happened, people should be punished. I hope the CBI finds out the truth.” While Meera is deeply affected by Sushant’s premature demise, the actress strongly believes that it’s mistaken to vilify his girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, who’s being accused and blamed for the dying.
When quizzed about her tackle Sushant’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty being referred to as names like “Vishkanya” and “black magician”, the actress replied: “Certain individuals are accused on this case and they need to be interrogated with no sympathy, be it a boy or a woman.
At least I haven’t got any sympathy for them. But then I really feel calling someone names is horrible. Somebody is asking her Vishkanya, someone calling her jadugarni. She is an accused. I really feel we should always not label someone or give our verdict no less than until the time investigation is happening and he or she isn’t pronounced responsible.” — IANS
