Filmmaker Sandip Ssingh has hit back at Rhea Chakraborty after she in an interview that she was not “invited” to Sushant Singh Rajput’s funeral.
Reacting to this, Ssingh told PinkVilla, “People who are saying I was not invited for the funeral of Sushant Singh Rajput, they should really check their mind. It was not a birthday party or some mahurat or some or a film success party. It was a funeral. If you are Sushant’s friend, you were waiting for the invitation to come to you to come to the funeral? Have we lost our mind? Are we educated or we are not educated? Somebody invited me to Sushant’s house when I heard the news or I went on my own on a human ground?”
He further stated, “Those people, after not even coming for the funeral are saying, ‘I was not invited. My name was not on the list.’ Yeh kya kissi bahut bade politician ya businessman ki shaadi ka list hai jo aapka guest list gate mein denge aur aapko tick kiya jaayega? Do you have to get ready? I can understand the emotion that you wanted to come but you can’t think, ‘Oh! My name was not there. Oh My God! I was not invited.’ How can you even think that.”
He also named a number of celebrities that turned up outside the crematorium, even though they were not permitted inside due to restrictions. He said, “There was Ekta Kapoor who was standing outside the gate in the rain. Abhishek Kapoor, who made Kedarnath with him and launched him in Kai Po Che, I didn’t even see him. Somebody told me his name was not there in the list but he came and he stood in the rain. Shraddha Kapoor, his co-star who came and stood like a common person outside the gate. People who had to come, they came. They paid their last visit to Sushant and went away without showing off.”
