Disha Salian death case
There were rumours that actor Sooraj Pancholi might be responsible for the demise of Disha Salian. However, Sooraj had clarified that such allegations were all baseless and had said that he didn't even know her. However, Disha's death case is still under investigation.
Soon after her death, 'Kedarnath' actor Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead at his Bandra residence on June 14, 2020. The actor's death gave rise to a lot of rumours and speculations. In a number of interviews, Sushant's house manager had said that the 'Raabta' actor was extremely disturbed by the media mentioning him in news reports about Disha's death.
The actor had also posted a note on social media following Disha's death. The post read: "It's such devastating news. My deepest condolences to Disha's family and friends. May your soul rest in peace."
Actor Varun Sharma had also posted a picture of himself with Disha on social media and wrote: "Am at a loss of words. Speechless. Numb. It all looks unreal. So many memories. Such a lovely person and a dear friend. You always wore that smile everyday, and with such kindness you dealt with everything that came your way. You will be deeply missed. Prayers and Strength to the Family. I still can't believe Disha you're gone. Gone too Soon."
