"No, at all. This is a lie. Four years ago, our relationship ended. I didn't have his number nor did I chase him. He wanted to move ahead in his career and he had different priorities. I was happy for him that he was moving ahead in his journey. But we had no contact. Sirf humare beech ek message exchange that wo bhi social media par. This is a lie that I gave anyone a statement that Rhea usse harass karti thi. Nor do I know Rhea nor anything about her. But I know Sushant and I know that there was never a message exchange like this between us," she said when asked if she had, in fact, revealed details of her chat with Sushant. Sushant Singh Rajput Case: Late Actor’s Close Friend Reveals He Is Being Pressured to Speak Against Rhea Chakraborty.
