Actress Kriti Sanon has opened up about the toxicity surrounding the discourse around the death of her friend and co-star Sushant Singh Rajput last year.

In a recent interview with the Times of India, Kriti spoke about why she went quiet about Sushant after a while. Sushant was found dead in his Mumbai flat on June 14 last year. His untimely death shook the entertainment industry, and continued to make national headlines with central agencies probing his death and the drug angle surrounding it.

Kriti, who starred alongside Sushant in 2017 romance Raabta, had shared a heart-warming post after his death. But she chose to maintain silence about her feelings after that.

Speaking about why she went quiet, she said: “At one point, there was so much noise around that I didn’t want to be a part of it. It reached a point where people stopped being sensitive, and there was too much negativity around. I didn’t want to be a part of that negativity.”

She added: “I knew what I felt about the situation and I wanted to keep that to myself. I didn’t feel the need to talk to anyone about anything that I was feeling. Also, what you want to say, you can always say it on social media. You can write and express yourself instead of talking out loud.”
