Sushant Singh, Rhea Chakraborty ‘broke up’ before his death

Following the tragic death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, reports did the rounds claiming the actor and his girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty had broken up, reported Indian media on Thursday.

Although the actress hasn't addressed these claims, director Rumy Jafry revealed his understanding of their relationship status. The filmmaker recently revealed that the rumoured lovebirds were to star in his untitled rom-com. While the director claimed Sushant was eager to start the project, he had revealed that he was unaware of Sushant and Rhea's breakup that was making the headlines.

In a conversation with E Times, Rumy said neither Sushant nor Rhea talked about the alleged breakup with him. He said the three got on a call together in the first week of June to discuss the project. "He never told me about it, and Rhea, too, did not say anything of the sort. The last time I discussed this project with him was in the first week of June. They were together on the call. In fact, it was Rhea who got him on the call. Then, on June 12, I had messaged him, and he was very excited about the project," he told the publication.

There are also rumours doing the rounds suggesting Sushant was to tie the knot in November. The filmmaker admitted he wasn't aware of the wedding. “I am not aware about the marriage bit. I got to know about it through the news media," he said.

Meanwhile, the police have taken a statement from Sushant's friend and the director of his upcoming film Dil Bechara, Mukesh Chabbra.
