Rhea Chakraborty and Sushant Singh Rajput went on a Europe trip in October 2019. Rhea revealed that she had to go for modeling in Europe, which Sushant turned into a trip.
- Rhea Chakraborty claimed in a conversation with a news channel that Sushant had gone into depression in 2013, taking modafinil since then.
- According to the actress, Sushant himself named his company after her, he had a tremendous bond with her brother Shovik.
The CBI investigation in the case of Sushant Singh Rajput’s death has been going on for 7 days. Meanwhile, Rhea Chakraborty, the main accused in the case, was interviewed by news channel and put her point in front of the public. During this time she claimed that Sushant was afraid of flying, for which he used to take a medicine called Modafinil. According to her, Sushant had taken the medicine even before boarding a flight while going on a Europe tour in October 2019. Modafinil is usually given for high sleep sickness (narcolepsy).
‘Sushant did not leave the room for 3 days after reaching Paris’
Recalling the Europe Trip in an interview with India Today, Rhea said- When we were about to fly to Europe, Sushant said that he is scared of flying. He took a medicine called Modafinil without the doctor’s advice. When we arrived in Paris, he did not leave the room for three days. Whereas before starting the trip he was saying that he is very excited.
He said that he is very excited about the trip. Because there he could be free, which he cannot do in Mumbai. He wanted to walk the streets and have fun, which he could not do in India. We were very happy. I myself did not understand what happened later?
‘Sushant was perfect in Switzerland’
Rhea continued- In Switzerland he was perfectly fine. Was energetic. We arrived in Italy and stayed at the Gothic Hotel, which we were not aware of at the time of booking. Our room had a dome-like structure, which I did not like. I told him that we should change the room. But he insisted on staying in the same room. He told me that there was something here. I said it’s a nightmare. Because I thought that such thoughts can come to the mind of people in such places.
Despite my repeated advice to change the room, he decided to stay there. Her health began to deteriorate and he had anxiety attacks. When I asked him what happened, he said that he had depression in 2013 and then he met a psychiatrist named Harish Shetty. He told me that it was Harish Shetty who advised him to take Modafinil before boarding the flight. According to him, he was perfectly fine since then. Then his condition started deteriorating and we left the trip in the middle and returned to India.
‘Sushant had tremendous bond with Shovik’
When Rhea was asked that she was in love with Sushant. Yet why did she take her brother Shovik on a trip? In response, she said- Shovik had a very good bond with Sushant. We even jokingly called Shovik as Meri Sautan. Sushant, Shovik and I were partners in ‘Rhealityx’, a company based on Artificial Intelligence.
Sushant himself named the company after me. To be a partner in the company, everyone had to pay 33 thousand -33 thousand rupees. Shovik was unemployed. So I gave him his money. He was preparing for CAT and doubted whether he would be able to join us. Sushant insisted on taking him on a Europe trip.
‘I was not after Sushant’s money’
On Sushant’s question of spending money, Rhea said- I had to go to Paris for a fashion shoot. The company sent tickets. Sushant wondered why not turn this opportunity into a Europe trip. So he cancelled those tickets (I have those tickets to prove it) and got first class tickets. Also paid for the rest of the trip expenses including hotels.
He wanted to do everything and I had no problem with it. I was troubled by how much money he was spending. I thought it was a very expensive trip. But he did what he wanted to do. How could I raise the question?
Earlier, he went on a trip to Thailand with his 6 male friends. He had booked a private jet and spent Rs 70 lakh. So it is not that he was just spending money on me. He was such a person. He won like a star. He lived like a king. I was not looking at Sushant’s money. We lived like a couple.
This interview definitely helped Rhea put forward her point of view in front of the public. It may leave many confused as to whose side of the story to believe, but one can hope that the CBI investigation will clarify more things.
