Siddharth Pithani On The Night Before Sushant's Death
Speaking about the night before Sushant committed suicide, Siddarth told India Today, "Sushant gave me the name Buddha. He had 150 dreams and to complete his dream he had hired me. We both knew each other through a common friend. We all use to pray together, I use to play the guitar. He introduced me to spirituality. He, on the day of suicide, came to my room around 1am and asked me why I was awake. I later dropped him into his room."
'We Never Thought He Can Do Suicide,' Says Siddharth Pithani
He further added, "Next day morning, I came down, and the cook informed me about Sushant's room was locked. Dipesh and Keshav, other flatmates, had seen him in the morning. His closed room surprised us. We waited for some time, then we found him dead. We never thought he can do suicide. He was under treatment, we were aware about it."
