Smriti Irani talked about Sushant

Smriti talked about the dark day when Sushant went for his heavenly abode saying a goodbye to the world. Smriti said, ‘The day Sushant Singh Rajput died, I was in a video conference. There were many people there, but I could not speak. I said – stop it. I was feeling that why didn’t he call me, he should have called at least once. I told that boy, ‘Yaar maarna mat apne aap ko (Oh friend, don’t kill yourself).’

Met Sushant on the set

The sets of Sushant and Smriti’s shows were nearby. Smriti had also invited Sushant for a master class at IFFI when she took over the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting. Smriti said that after hearing the news of Sushant’s death, she called her ‘Kai Po Che’ co-star Amit Sadh. The two talked for about 6 hours. Smriti stated, ‘I was scared for Amit and called him to ask what he is up to. I knew, kuch gadbad karega bachcha. Amit told me he doesn’t want to stay in the industry after whatever Sushant did.’

Smriti helped Amit overcome depression

In an interview with author Chetan Bhagat, Amit shared how he was deeply affected by Sushant’s death and at that time Smriti came as a helping hand to him. He quoted, “I don’t know how she got to know that I am in trouble. I got a random call from her and we spoke for six hours.I said I don’t want to be in this industry, I will go live in the mountains.”
