“Sushant Singh Rajput Began  Hearing Voices …Rhea Got Frightened  & Left”

“It is Parveen Babi  all over again,” Mahesh Bhatt had said about Sushant Singh Rajput’s  rapidly deteriorating mental condition. He advised  Sushan’s girlfriend Rhea Chakravarty to leave.

 These are some of  the revelations on  Sushant Singh Rajput’s   suicide  made by writer  Suhrita Sengupta,a close associate  of  filmmaker  Mahesh Bhatt in whose company Suhrita met Sushant for the last time.

“Sushant  had  come  to meet Bhatt Saab for a possible  role in Sadak 2. They hit it off instantly, Sushant  was a talker. He held forth on every topic under the sun. Sushant could speak on Quantam  physics as  well as  cinema,” says  Suhrita sorrowfully.

Bhatt Saab identified  the  melancholy  under  Sushant’s  constant exuberance. “He had seen  it in Parveen Babi and he  knew there  was  nothing  that would be done except medication. Rhea who stuck on   in spite   of  Sushant’s  rapid descent  into depression tried her best to  ensure that Sushant would take his medication. But  he refused.”

Without medication Sushant’s  depression got worse.

“During the last one year he had cut himself completely from all outside contact. Rhea was  with him  until she could take it no longer. There came a time when Sushant began  hearing voices. He began to feel  people were  trying to  kill him. One day an Anurag Kashyap film  was  playing  in Sushant’s  home and  he told Rhea,  ‘I  said no to an offer from Kashyap. Now he’s going to come  to  kill me.’ That’s when  Rhea  was  too frightened  to  stay with  Sushant any  longer,” says  Suhrita.

Rhea quit the  relationship.

“She had  no  choice.Bhatt Saab  told her there was  nothing she could do. If she  stayed on  she  would lose her  sanity too. Rhea waited for Sushant’s sister to come to Mumbai  and take charge. Sushant’s sisters  tried their best to support and  comfort him. But he  was beyond listening to anyone. He wouldn’t take his  medication,”  confides Suhrita.
