Actor Sooraj Pancholi has responded to questions regarding Sushant Singh Rajput untimely death. 

Sooraj's name came up after senior BJP leader Narayan Rane questioned during a press conference on August 4 that, "Why were people present at Sooraj Pancholi's house party not questioned? On June 13 there was a party."

Rumours were rife about a party at Sooraj Pancholi's Mumbai residence on June 13, the night before Sushant Singh Rajput died.

In a TV interview with India Today, Sooraj addressed these questions.

Speaking about his name being associated with Sushant's death case, Sooraj said: "I am trying to stay positive right now. You know, as strong and as positive as I can be, I don't discuss this with my family because I know they are already in a lot of stress because of me, thinking about me all the time. In fact, my mother thinks that I'm going to harm myself. And she has spoken to me a couple of times. Even after Sushant's death, she spoke to me saying, 'Sooraj, whatever it is, if there's anything in your heart please come and talk to us. Don't be quiet.' I'm not a very talkative person when it comes to my problems. I don't discuss with my family because I know they're stressed because of me."

"I am trying to make my living in this industry. And I don't want to give up on that soon. Because this is my dream. It is my passion. It is what I have worked for. People think I have just gotten out of bed and walked on a film set which is not true. I have worked very hard. Starting as an assistant director in two films. I have done my acting course, I have my acting degree," he said.

"I have done everything possible to get my first film. So, this is my passion and I'm not going to give up that easy. And these people who are talking about me should have some sense and should have some kind of humanity. Because yeh fair nahi hai. They are destroying my life. I don't know whether Sushant committed suicide or not. I don't know. But these people will definitely drive me to commit suicide. I would like to say that," Sooraj added.
