Smriti Irani was seen crying bitterly remembering Sushant Singh Rajput, such was the reaction on the actor's death
In a recent interview, Union Minister and former TV actress Smriti Irani got emotional while talking about Sushant Singh Rajput's death. She shared that after hearing the news of his demise, she kept asking herself why Sushant didn't call her before taking such a drastic step. Smriti also revealed that she had contacted Amit Sadh after learning about Sushant's death, hoping to prevent him from doing anything similar.
This is how Smriti Irani knew Sushant
Smriti and Sushant had their TV show sets located close to each other, and she had even invited him to conduct a master class at IFFI when she was the Minister of Information and Broadcasting. She also knew Amit Sadh, who was devastated after Sushant's death and expressed a desire to leave. Smriti had asked him about Sushant's problems, but Amit responded by asking if she had nothing else to do. However, the two ended up talking on the phone for six hours.
Smriti's emotional reaction to Sushant's death is a reminder of the shock and grief that his passing caused those who knew him personally or admired his work. It highlights the need for better mental health awareness and support in the entertainment industry, where the pressure to succeed and the scrutiny of the public eye can take a toll on one's well-being.
