Bollywood actor Sooraj Pancholi has denied conspiracy theories that allege his involvement in Sushant Singh Rajput and his former manager Disha Salian’s deaths.

Sooraj told Beyond Bollywood in an interview, “I don’t even know Disha. I never met her in my life. I only knew about her after her death, and then later Sushant’s death, that too through social media. I’d never interacted, don’t know what she even looked like.”

Claiming that the rumours are a disrespect to the deceased, he said, “It is inappropriate to talk [like this] about people who are no longer there. Think about the girl’s family, her brother and sister, and what they are going through right now. It is disheartening not because they are writing about me but you are writing this about someone who is not there anymore.”

“People who have nothing to do have written it like a movie script. It looks like a script that has gone wrong. I feel I’ll be wasting my time if I give a statement to something as disgusting, inappropriate and insensitive as that,” he said.

Disha died after falling from a high-rise building in Malad. Sushant had reacted to it on his Instagram stories. “It’s such devastating news. My deepest condolences to Disha’s family and friends. May your soul rest in peace,” he wrote.

Sooraj is being tried in late girlfriend Jiah Khan’s suicide case. Jiah was found dead at her Mumbai apartment on June 3, 2013.

Sooraj made his Bollywood debut with Salman Khan’s production, Hero in 2015.

This was followed by Satellite Shankar in 2019. He is expected to star alongside Katrina Kaif’s sister Isabelle Kaif in her Bollywood debut, Time to Dance.
