© India Today Sooraj Pancholi was in a relationship with Jiah Khan when the latter killed herself
Jiah Khan’s death had rattled the Hindi film industry in a way probably only such shocking cases can do. The actor, who entered Bollywood with the Ram Gopal Varma film Nishabd alongside Amitabh Bachchan, was found dead in her apartment in Juhu, Mumbai, on June 3, 2013.
Over the last two years, the Jiah Khan case has seen several developments. The latest in the case is the CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation) filing a supplementary chargesheet and declaring the actor’s death a suicide. Jiah’s boyfriend, actor Sooraj Pancholi, has been charged with abetment to suicide under section 306 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
While the entire country has been discussing and debating the Jiah Khan death case, Sooraj would want to stay silent about the subject. Pancholi says that he would prefer to stay mum on the case, even as the CBI has in its chargesheet accused the actor of driving her to commit suicide.
The CBI filed the chargesheet on December 9, citing that Sooraj made false promises to Jiah, who allegedly committed suicide in 2013.
“Highs and lows are part of life. God is great. The case is still in court. 10 people have 10 different things to say about it. I will talk once the case is cleared. I dont want to make a khichdi (mess) out of it,” Pancholi told reporters at the red carpet of 11th Guild Awards in Mumbai.
The 25-year-old Sooraj was launched in Bollywood this year by Salman Khan in the Nikhil Advani film Hero.
When asked if he has the superstar’s support in the case, Sooraj said, “Salman has got nothing to do with it. Like every family, my family is supporting me and I am supporting my family.”
