She said that they knew the truth, she knew what he meant to her, and he knew that and that was important. They were shooting every day. She said that when one or two articles come out, one can’t pay attention to the rumours.
Sanjana said that the articles were baseless and nothing changed between the two actors since there was nothing. She further said that imagine how it is for two stars, who adore each other, to sit back and wonder how to prove that all these allegations aren’t true.
Sanjana revealed that Sushant asked her whether to put out the chats between them. She told him to go ahead and he posted the screenshots. Sanjana said that people were still were not ready to believe. She said that even her clarification did not work.

When asked why it took her few days to clarify the allegations, she said that she shouldn’t need to clarify anything since nothing had happened. She didn’t want to perpetuate the culture of responding to every rumour posted about them. She said that Sushant was the greatest co-star she could have had and she had utmost love and respect for him, as he did for her.
Sanjana also said that if something would have happened, they would not have gone ahead with the Paris schedule and finished the film. She also urged everyone to believe the truth.
