Late Sushant Singh Rajput’s Dil Bechara co-star Sanjana Sanghi raised a lot of eyebrows after she wrote a cryptic post about leaving Mumbai. In fact, her caption left everyone anxious as it dropped hints about Sanjana leaving Bollywood forever.

However, the newcomer has now clarified the reports about her bidding adieu to Bollywood and Mumbai. The actress reassured everyone that there was ‘absolutely nothing to worry about’. Taking to her Instagram stories, the actress wrote, “Arre arre! Kaafi kuch interpret ho gaya meri previous story se (Uh oh! My previous story was interpreted in the wrong way). Now that I re-read it, I can see why! Did NOT mean can any kind of ‘bidding adieu’ forever – not to Mumbai, not to anything else!”

She continued, “I have been back home in Delhi since February , throughout lockdown! When COVID eases out, is what I meant when I said ‘jaldi, ya shayad nahi’ – we’ll all be back to life as per usual! Me to being wherever it is that is required for work! Appreciate all the worry, all you lovely humans! But absolutely nothing to worry about (sic).”

Take a look at Sanjana Sanghi’s recent post:


On Wednesday, the newcomer took to Instagram to write a cryptic note along with a masked photo of herself that read, “Khuda Hafiz, Mumbai. 4 mahine baad aapke darshan hue. Main chali Dilli vapis (Khuda Hafiz, Mumbai. Saw you after four months. I’m going back to Delhi)…”

Sanjana Sanghi was shocked and upset by the news of Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise. The actress posted a video where she expressed how she was feeling after hearing the news. Sharing the video, Sanjana wrote, “I refreshed my web pages a 100 times hoping I’m reading some sort of horrible joke. I’m not equipped to process any of this. I don’t think I ever will be. I’m definitely not equipped to articulate my feelings, this is me failing, but trying…”

. . You gave me a forever, within a limited number of days, and for that. I’m forever grateful. – our beloved novel, The Fault In Our Stars A forever of learnings, and of memories. I refreshed my web pages a 100 times hoping I’m reading some sort of horrible joke. I’m not equipped to process any of this. I don’t think I ever will be. I’m definitely not equipped to articulate my feelings, this is me failing, but trying. Sushant and I were to save all our anecdotes, moments and stories from the time we spent shooting together up until the release of our film, so we had kept them in our stomachs all this while. After 2 years of seemingly all the possible difficulties one single film can face, with all sorts of crap constantly being written, and being relentlessly pursued – we were supposed to FINALLY watch the film, our labour of love, together – my first, and what you told me you believed was your best film yet. Amidst your journey, and in the middle of 16 hour long shoot days, you somehow found a way and had a desire to yell out to me from the opposite side of set screaming “Rockstar, itni achi acting thodi na karte hain paagal!” ; To guide me over things big & small through our film’s process, To tell me to conserve my energy on set; To discuss even the smallest nuance you thought could change the narrative of a scene and would whole heartedly accept my disagreement; To discuss ways in which we could together forge a brighter educational future for the children of India. You were a force Manny, and you always will be. We’re going to spend an eternity to try and make sense of what you’ve left us behind with, and I personally never will be able to. I simply wish you never left us behind in the first place. Just know, you have a country full of millions, looking up at you, smiling at you, thankful for you. As you smile back at us, from up above. The fact that you get to spend the rest of your time by your mother’s side, I know you gives the only happiness you wanted in the world. #RIPSushantSinghRajput
