Sushant Singh Rajput was a brilliant actor, gone too soon. A rising star in Bollywood, his last release Chhichhore was a huge hit at the box office. While one may think he had everything, friends close to him insist he was suffering from clinical depression but had stopped taking his anti-depressant pills. While Bollywood is still coping with its huge loss, producer Mukhesh Bhatt in his conversation with Times Now revealed how "he saw it coming" in Sushant's case. Meaning, he was aware of his condition and always thought he was a disturbed soul.

The producer had earlier approached the actor for Aashiqui 2 and Sadak 2 but realised they were never on the same page. "He was a very disturbed boy. He was not there while talking to me, I felt that he was not on the same plain. There was something amiss, something wrong," Bhatt recalled in his interaction. Later he even compared the actor to veteran actress Parveen Babi who suffered from schizophrenia and thought Sushant was heading her way.

Later the producer even suggested the youngers to not enter the glamour field if they can't cope up with stress and his comments irked Union minister Babul Supriyo. The politician took to his Twitter account to reason with the producer and also question him as to why "he didn’t act or help the actor out as a fatherly figure”.
