He says, "I feel it’s beyond what people are trying to show. I don’t think he can kill himself. I am sure there is something larger and bigger behind (the death). I am hoping the truth comes out."
Recalling some fond memories of Sushant, Vishal revealed, "My first memory of Sushant is of the set of Kis Desh Mein Hai Meraa Dil. I was already doing Kuchh is Tarah so there was like one cameo role for which they wanted a known face. So it was me. Sushant was there. That was the first time I met him on the set. He was very nice and a chilled-out person. Then both were working with Balaji for the longest time, so we kept bumping into each other. I was there when he was cast for Pavitra Rishta. We always met at Balaji parties. That’s how we created a bond."

He remembers Sushant as someone who was always “smiling, laughing” adding that he was “such a good guy”. Vishal revealed that when he heard the news of his death on June 14, Vishal thought that someone was joking.
"We hadn’t spoken for a few years. When I heard the news, I had no reaction. I was numb, I couldn’t believe it because it was sad and unbelievable. When I saw the picture — that was the worst thing. I feel there is a lot of power in prayers. Prayers can turn wrong into right. So, I think we all should pray,. I am happy that now CBI will solve the case,” Vishal concluded.
