The tragic untimely demise of actor Sushant Singh Rajput seems to be getting murkier day by day with the many warped inconsistencies in the narratives of people claiming to be closely in touch with him.
Recently, Sushant Singh Rajput’s ex-flatmate Samuel Haokip has asked for a detailed investigation into the actor’s sudden death. In an exclusive interactive session with Republic TV, Samuel stated that he does not have faith in the many versions out in the media, including the one cited by his current Siddharth Pithani, and added that he had never heard of Sandip Ssingh from Rajput when he was alive. He remembered Sushant as cheerful and could not believe that he was undergoing depression and live-in girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty was helping him by giving him medicines.
Samuel Haokip stated that he was staying with Sushant for close to a year, from October 2018 to June-July 2019. He had joined Sushant as a part of the Pro team, that was centred around his 150 dreams and comprised of persons with different skill sets like directors, editors. Samuel stated that Sushant was more like a brother to him.
He cited finishing his LLB as the reason to leave and the other members of the team left as and when they had their own commitments.
When he was questioned about Rhea, one of the accused in abetment to Sushant’s alleged suicide, and the actress trying to help Sushant, Samuel replied, “Not my assessment of Sushant at all. Till I was there, he was very lively person. He’d be like, ‘Let’s do meditation and play TT.”
“He taught me so much. We were always happy, in the moment, doing something creative. The day would not end, and it was spiritual in a way.”
He stated he tried to contact those present in the house at the time of the incident, “I tried to contract everyone I knew. The only person I could get hold on was the house helper Neeraj, and he also gave me the version there in the media. I can’t just take their words for sure. I really want a thorough investigation because I really want to know what really went wrong.”
Samuel was also questioned about Sandip Ssingh, who claimed to be close to Sushant. The producer, who had arrived at that moment, and was also present at the funeral, has added fuel to the inconsistencies with his statements. Samuel replied that he never heard about him at all.
Samuel also said, “Sushant was so lively. We read books about people being in present. And there was a man who was always trying to be in the present. For people like us who want to learn, it’s an amazing chance. It’s magic happening every moment.”
Another name which has been buzzing around is that of Samuel Miranda, who also used to live with Sushant. Samuel stated that when he left in June-July, Miranda had been hired as housekeeping manager to look into staff and rest of the requirements.
