Celebrity manager Disha Salian’s mother has spoken up about her daughter’s death for the first time and alleged that it could be the result of an accident. Disha allegedly died after falling from the 14th floor of a building on June 8 in Mumbai. The 28-year-old had reportedly been battling with depression. She is known to have worked with actor Sushant Singh Rajput who was found dead in his apartment on June 14.

It’s been a month since Disha allegedly fell to her death from the 14th floor of a building in Jankalyan Nagar in Malad West. According to DNA India, her post mortem report reveals that she had unnatural head injuries due to the fall from a high-rise building.

When asked about the connection between her daughter’s death and that of Sushant, which is now being investigated by the Central Bureau of Investigation, Disha’s mother Vasanti Salian said that the family did not suspect anyone, but anything is possible in Bollywood. “No, we don’t suspect anyone,” she said. When asked if it was a clear case of suicide, she said, “We don’t know if it was suicide. It could be an accident too,” Times Now reported.

What did Disha ‘s mother say

“She was at home, she couldn’t celebrate her birthday on June 26. She used to work all the time. She was bit tense during lockdown due to work but I wasn’t aware that she was depressed. She used to enjoy every moment and used to love travelling,” recalled her mother, DNA India reported.

Even if I die, my life has no value, Disha was my future and now she’s not here and now I don’t even worry about her. What more can happen in our life now.”
