The 24-year-old, nevertheless, says she doesn’t know a lot about Chakraborty. “I’ve never met her. I don’t think someone like Sushant — who motivated us to dream big, told us to write down our dreams and work hard to achieve them and was always there to help — can do this. He was very happy. Things changed when he Rhea came in his life and they started to date,” says the actor identified for reveals akin to Sasural Simar Ka and Ishqbaaaz.

In help of a CBI enquiry, Barretto provides additional, “I don’t think anyone in the right state of mind would put their life and career in jeopardy to speak for their friend, just for some personal agenda.”
