Bollywood actor Sooraj Pancholi has found himself into the middle of controversy once again. A post, which recently went viral on social media, linked the actor’s name with Sushant Singh Rajput and his former manager Disha Salian’s death.
The viral Facebook post claimed that Disha was pregnant with Sooraj Pancholi’s child and Sushant knew about it. Salman Khan’s name also got dragged into the matter as the post alleged that the ‘Dabangg’ actor supported Sooraj. Ever since the untimely demise of Sushant, several conspiracy theories have cropped up on social media.
While talking to a leading news channel, Sooraj denied all the allegations leveled up against him and called it baseless.
“I have never met Sushant’s former manager Disha in my life; neither at a party nor alone. I came to know about Disha and her suicide through social media. The way Sushant and Disha’s suicide is being linked to me is wrong. It is all baseless. I am hurt by such allegations. I am already facing trial for Jiah Khan’s case. The case has severely affected my sister and she is now perturbed because of the speculations that are floating on the internet regarding Disha Salian’s death. I am also upset with the allegations against me. If there was any conspiracy in Sushant and Disha’s death, police would have known about it.” Sooraj told ABP News.
The ‘Kai Po Che’ actor’s suicide has sparked several conspiracy theories online. Old articles of Sooraj’s tiff with the actor have resurfaced on social media. Gossip mills have been buzzing with the rumours that Sooraj had a scuffle with Sushant in 2017 and the latter was planning to expose Pancholi after Disha’s death.
