The family of Disha Salian, who was the manager of Sushant Singh Rajput, has issued a statement reacting to rumours on social media surrounding her death.

“Dear all, Whoever is reading this, you may or may not be knowing us and Disha in person. But we all have one thing in common. We all are humans and have the ability to feel. Thus we hope you all understand our pain,” the statement read.

“We lost someone we loved. The loss is too deep and grave to be processed. It’s a difficult situation for us as we are still trying to come to terms with her demise. But at the same time, what’s more upsetting are the several unnecessary rumours, conspiracy theories and speculations that are not just fake but are also hampering the wellbeing of her parents and close ones.

“While we continue to grieve our loss, we have only one request to everyone. Kindly help us heal by not encouraging, entertaining or spreading the fake rumours and news circulating around on social media by people who clearly have turned insensitive and are trying to take advantage of someone’s death for their own vested interests.

“Disha was someone’s daughter, someone’s sister and someone’s friend. You all have someone who is fulfilling these roles in your lives. Look at them and tell us, how would you be feeling if same would be happening to your dear ones.

“Empathy is the basic quality that makes us human. So let’s be human first. Please let her Rest in Peace and let’s spread kindness. — Salian Family & Friends.”

The celebrity manager died in Mumbai on June 8. She reportedly committed suicide by jumping off the 14th floor of her apartment in Malad.

Rajput was found hanging at his home days later on June 14, but it is unclear if there was any connection between the two suicides.

Over the past few days, the internet has been abuzz with rumours surrounding Salian. Some claim she was pregnant with Bollywood actor Sooraj Pancholi’s child at the time of her death.

Pancholi has rubbished such rumours in an interview with Bombay Times where he said: “I don’t even know who Disha is, I have never met her in my life. I found out about her after Sushant’s death, and I feel bad for the families involved.”
