Sooraj was at a hotel when Jiah died: Aditya Pancholi
Mumbai: Aditya Pancholi, harried by the sudden allegations against his son in the Jiah Khan case, says Sooraj was at a five star hotel when the actress died.
"We've footage of Sooraj entering the hotel, spending time in there with his friend and leaving the hotel. Therefore the question of Sooraj's guilt just doesn't arise," said Aditya reacting to Jiah's mother Rabiya Khan's allegation that her daughter was murdered by someone very "close" to her.
Jiah, known for her role in 'Nishabd', was June 3 found hanging from the ceiling at her Juhu residence. She was 25. At that time the police had reportedly termed it suicide.
According to new reports, Kalina Forensic Laboratory's latest report revealed that there was human flesh and blood lodged underneath the late actress' fingernails.
Aditya, seen in films like 'Yes Boss', now intends to get a restraining order against reports naming his son in the Jiah case.
"We know what Jiah's mother is implying and why she is doing what she is doing. Sooraj is not the scared child that he was when Jiah's suicide toppled his world over," he said.
"Today, after spending 21 days in one of the toughest jails in the country and having been put under the radar for no fault of his, Sooraj has grown up. It is being implied that I have pulled strings to get my son out of jail on bail. Tell me if I was so powerful why would I have allowed my son to languish in Arthur Road jail for 21 days?"
Sooraj in the meanwhile, continues to prepare for his debut in the remake of Subhash Ghai's 'Hero'.
"My boy is much stronger now. I am glad he learnt the bitter lessons so early in his life. This whole experience has toughened him," said Aditya.
