During an exclusive interview with India Today’s Rajdeep Sardesai, Rhea Chakraborty mentioned about a Bangkok trip that Sushant Singh Rajput went on with six of his friends. The late actor went on the trip with Kushal Zaveri, Siddharth Gupta, Abbas, Mushtaq and Sabir Ahmed. According to Rhea, the actor spent Rs 70 lakh on this trip. Sabir Ahmed talked to India Today TV about the Bangkok trip and why it had to be cut short. He said that Sara Ali Khan also went to Bangkok with them.
Sabir Ahmed, who was Sushant Singh Rajput’s assistant back then, said that the trip was for the PRO team of the late actor. Sara Ali Khan, who worked with Sushant in Abhishek Kapoor’s Kedarnath, also went with the boys on the trip. He said, “We were seven people: Sushant, Sara Ali Khan, Siddharth Gupta, Kushal Zaveri, Abbas, Sushant’s bodyguard Mushtaq, and me.”
He added, “It was Sushant’s trip with his PRO team, Sara Ali Khan and two staff members. It was in December 2018 and we travelled by private jet.”
Sabir Ahmed revealed that during the Bangkok trip, Sushant Singh Rajput and Sara Ali Khan were in their hotel only. He added, “Only on the first day, all of us went to the beach. But later, Sushant and Sara were in the hotel for the rest of the trip, while his friends went out to explore. They stayed at a luxurious island hotel in Bangkok.”
When asked why the trip was cut short, he said, “There was forecast of a tsunami, so they decided to return. But Mushtaq and I stayed back as there were limited flight tickets. We stayed in Bangkok for a month and Sushant gave us his ATM card for our expenses. Later, Samuel Haokip transferred us money as per our need from Mumbai.”
When Sushant Singh Rajput and Sara Ali Khan reached Mumbai along with their friends, Samuel Haokip picked them up from the airport.
