Nandish Sandhu on Sushant Singh Rajput's suicide: Nobody will ever know what the reason was. Nandish Sandhu talks about Sushant Singh Rajput's suicide and said that nobody will ever know what was the reason behind his drastic step.
Sushant Singh Rajput passed away on June 14. He was just 34 and had committed suicide by hanging himself. His friend from the television industry, Nandish Sandhu had now spoken about Sushant's demise and revealed that he knew Sushant since they had been working together in the television industry and Sushant had also stayed in the same apartment as his. In an interview with Rediff.com, Nandish said, "We have been friends since the time we did television. Our shows (Pavitra Rishta and Uttaran) were running at the same time on different channels and they were the top two shows at that point in time. That's how we knew each other and eventually, became friends. He used to live Lokhandwala (complex, Andheri, northwest Mumbai) and we used to meet once in a while. Later, he moved to my building in Malad (another suburb in northwest Mumbai). We would spend time together, crack jokes, have fun, talk about our dreams...We would be like, kash hame woh role mil jaye...I remember when he had just quit Pavitra Rishta and that time before >em>Kai Po Che!, we used to watch films together at his house. Those were beautiful days. That is my first memory when I think of Sushant."
He was asked if he was not in touch with Sushant after he went to Bollywood. He said, "It wasn't like before, but yes, we met a couple of times because both of us lived in Bandra (northwest Mumbai). We lost touch in the last year. When we last met, he was neither depressed nor did we have any depressing conversations. We were hanging out at a function and discussing work. At that point, I had just finished shooting for my debut film (Super 30) and he was asking me about my shooting experience. We were sharing our experiences of shooting in films." Just like everyone else, Nandish is also unable to get over Sushant's demise. He shared, "I never ever thought even in my wildest dreams! He was so full of life, his career graph was going up, he was doing well in life. Also, he was talking about positive things like how he wanted to work and the kind of films he wanted to do. Nobody will ever know what the reason was. All the questions that people are asking, you will never be sure what was the reason for his drastic step. We can't gauge what is going on in his mind."
Nandish Sandhu said that he wasn't aware that Sushant Singh Rajput was in clinical depression.
