MUMBAI: Aspiring actor Sooraj Pancholi, who is out on bail after a 20-day ordeal in prison for allegedly abetting actress Jiah Khan’s suicide, is now trying to get back to his routine life. But he has to report to the police station every alternate day.
Sooraj, who was arrested June 10, was granted bail by the Bombay High Court July 1.
Recently, he was in Hyderabad and he had to rush to Mumbai to be in time for his attendance at the police station.
A source close to Sooraj said: “Sooraj is getting back to his normal life. He has started going to the gym again. He meets and talks with his cousins. But it isn’t easy to get into a regular life when you have to report at the police station every alternate day.”
This procedure of reporting every alternate day will continue for a month. In the meanwhile, Sooraj refuses to talk about his experiences in prison to anyone.
His father, actor Aditya Pancholi said: “I think Sooraj first needs to sort out the whole experience in his own head before he begins to share it with us. We don’t ask him about it.
“He’ll tell us what he wants to when he wants. Our boy hasn’t been on a picnic. What he has gone through has changed his life forever.”
On June 3, Jiah, 25, was found hanging in her flat in Juhu area here. Sooraj was arrested after a note written by Jiah blamed him for the suicide.
