It was in 2013 that the Nishabd actress Jiah Khan was found dead under mysterious circumstances. It has been almost 7 years since then, but the court case against Sooraj Pancholi is still going on.
Sooraj Pancholi who marked his Bollywood debut with the film Hero in 2015 is back on screen with a film, Satellite Shankar. When we sat for an interaction with the actor during one of his promotions at the T-series office, we naturally wanted to know the current status on the case and how is he coping up with it.
Sooraj started off on that by saying that it has been tough for him and there hasn’t been a single day when he hasn’t thought about it. "We haven't laughed at the dinner table. None of the allegations against me have been proven. So, whatever has been written against me is false. It’s just that I have been quiet. I have stayed mum because I want the court to decide what’s right and what’s wrong. I don’t want to pass a judgment on myself saying ���Oh, I’m innocent."
Furthermore, Sooraj said that the entire situation has affected his professional life as well and said he feels harassed as the ones who have accused him (Jiah's mother, Rabia) are not showing up in court.
Did filmmakers refrain signing him because of his Court trial still pending, we asked? Sooraj replied in the affirmative.
“I don’t have to prove myself innocent. They have to prove me guilty which I don’t think they can. So, they are not showing up in court. This is just pure harassment," Sooraj added.
