In an interview with a news portal, Saqib reportedly said that although he wants a fair investigation, it is heart-breaking to see how things have played out. He added that Rhea is his friend and as a friend, it is his responsibility to stand by her and her family at this time. Having said that, he also said that as the case is in court, he hopes and prays that the Indian judiciary gives a fair result of what happened.
Saqib also opened up about the alleged media trial in the actor’s death case. He stated that he has lost faith in news channels as everyone has their own version of the case. According to him, the job of news channels is to report facts, not to give a narrative to the audiences. He also added that it is unfortunate that a young promising actor like Sushant is no more.
Elaborating more on the negativity and hatred on social media post the actor’s tragic death, Saqib said that he is taken aback from all the reactions on social media. According to him, while social media was created to connect people, now it’s about people writing rubbish and getting away with it.
