Sandip states, “People are creating a drama out of his death and he did not like such things. After having a bath after I came home from the last rites, I got a few phone calls and messages asking me why I did not invite them to the funeral! I got messages ‘we are powerful people and you must invite us’. I mean, how disgusting these people think? Shocking!”
Sandeep gave examples of Sushant’s industry friends attending the funeral.”Ekta Kapoor unfortunately got dragged in the controversy but she was present there. Shraddha Kapoor, Kriti Sanon, Randeep Hooda, Rajkummar Rao, Vivek Oberoi ye sabhi waha aaye, baarish me khade rahe (All of these came in heavy rainfall and mourned there, they did not required a invitation for a funeral),” he added.

Dear Ankita, with each passing day, one thought keeps haunting me over and over again. Kaash… I wish… We could have tried even harder, we could've stopped him, we could've begged him! Even when you both seperated, you only prayed for his happiness and success… Your love was pure. It was special. You still haven't removed his name from the nameplate of your house❤️ I miss those days, when the three of us stayed together in lokhandwala as a family, we shared so many moments which bring tears to my heart today…cooking together, eating together, ac ka paani girna, our special Mutton bhaat, our long drives to uttan, lonavala or Goa! Our crazy holi! Those laughs we shared, those sensitive low phases of life when we were there for each other, you more than anyone. The things you did to bring a smile on Sushant's face. Even today, I believe that only you two were made for each other. You both are true love. These thoughts, these memories are hurting my heart…how do I get them back! I want them back! I want 'us three' back! Remember the Malpua!? And how he asked for my mother's Mutton curry like a little kid! I know that only you could've saved him. I wish you both got married as we dreamt. You could've saved him if he just let you be there…You were his girlfriend, his wife, his mother, his best friend forever. I love you Ankita. I hope I never lose a friend like you. I won't be able to take it.
