Sooraj Pancholi prefers to stay mum on Jiah Khan case

Mumbai, Dec 23 (IANS) Actor Sooraj Pancholi, who has been booked for abetment to suicide in the death of US-born actress Jiah Khan, says he does not want to “mess” up anything by commenting on the ongoing case.

“Highs and lows are a part of life. God is great. The case is still in court. Ten people have ten different things to say about it. I will talk once the case is cleared,” the actor, who reportedly had a tumultous relationship with Jiah before she committed suicide, said here on the sidelines of an awards event.

“I don’t want to make a ‘khichdi’ (mess) out of it,” he added.

Earlier this month, the CBI concluded in its chargesheet that the “Nishabd” actress committed suicide on June 3, 2013 following a disturbed relationship with Sooraj.

On being asked about his mentor Salman Khan’s support to him in the case, Sooraj, the son of Aditya Pancholi, said: “Salman has got nothing to do with it. Like every family, my family is supporting me and I am supporting my family.”

Sooraj made his acting debut in Bollywood this year with superstar Salman’s production “Hero”.
