Recently, there had been reports that actor Sushant Singh Rajput had harassed his co-star Sanjana Sanghi, who is starring with him in Kizie Aur Manny, the Hindi remake of The Fault in Our Stars. Sushant was apparently trying to be “extra friendly” towards newbie Sanjana Sanghi.

Director Mukesh Chhabra had refuted any such behaviour on part of Sushant.

After similar reports surfaced once again, Sushant took to his social media handles on Friday morning and shared screenshots of conversations that took place between himself and Sanjana during the shooting of the film. Sharing the screenshots, he wrote, “I feel sad to reveal personal information but it seems that there is no other way to state what was, in the midst of this curated and well-timed smear campaign. From the first till the last day of the shoot, this is what happened on the Set with Sanjana.”

Mukesh Chhabra came to Sushant’s support again and posted on Twitter: “We are shooting in Mumbai after wrapping the Jamshedpur and Ranchi schedule. This has been an absolute joyride and we are cruising ahead like one big happy unit,” he added. Mukesh shared another tweet on Thursday to clear Sushant’s name once again. “I totally stand by @itsSSR – no such incident happened on the sets and let’s not have a Twitter trial and make an innocent person suffer for somebody else’s ulterior motives I had clarified this on twitter long back and I still maintain it .”

Meanwhile, Sushant’s Twitter handle, @ItsSSR, is now seen being been without a display photograph and verification badge. After some people pointed it out, the actor clarified in a tweet that his account had not had the verification badge since September 5.

Sanjana is yet to react to the matter.
