Celebrity manager Disha Salian’s family has issued a statement after controversial posts started doing rounds on social media, concerning her death. Her family urged everyone to ‘stop spreading rumours, conspiracy theories, and speculations surrounding her death,’ as per reports. On social media people continue to dig theories around the deaths of Salian and actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

The Statement

The statement was shared as an open letter and urged people to show some empathy. “Whoever is reading this, you may or may not be knowing us and Disha in person. But we all have one thing in common. We all are humans and have the ability to feel. Thus we hope you all understand our pain. We lost someone we loved. The loss is too deep and grave to be processed. It’s a difficult situation for us as we are still trying to come to terms with her demise. But at the same time, what’s more, upsetting are the several unnecessary rumors, conspiracy theories, and speculations that are not just fake but are also hampering the well being of her parents and close ones.”

The note further added, “While we continue to grieve our loss, we have only one request to everyone. Kindly help us heal by not encouraging, entertaining or spreading the fake rumours and news circulating around on social media by people who clearly have turned insensitive and are trying to take advantage of someone’s death for their own vested interests.”

Disha Salian died of suicide in her apartment in Malad on the night of June 8. The note urged people to be empathetic.

“Disha was someone’s daughter, someone’s sister, and someone’s friend. You all have someone who is fulfilling these roles in your lives. Look at them and tell us, how would you be feeling if the same would be happening to your dear ones. Empathy is a basic quality that makes us human. So let’s be human first. Please let her Rest in Peace and let’s spread kindness.”

Disha was the ex-manager of Sushant Singh Rajput who also died by suicide a few weeks after Disha Salian’s death. The Mumbai police has registered an accidental death report and a probe to learn why Salian took this step. [Picture Credit- Indian Express]
