The suicide happened back on 2013 and the trial for abetment of suicide case began in 2019. While several developments happened in the case so far, one of the biggest ones now took place as the case has now moved to CBI court.
Talking about it with ETimes, Pancholi said, “I am a little satisfied with this because my case should have been in the special CBI Court from the beginning. Now that the matter is in the CBI Court, I am hopeful that we will see closure to this. If the court finds me guilty, I should be penalised, but if it doesn’t, I deserve to be set free from these charges."
While this case has been one the prime reasons that Pancholi has been in the light, he also launched his Bollywood career with Hero back in 2015 followed by Satellite Shankar in 2019 and now has another upcoming film in the form of Hawa Singh.
Talking about being under scrutiny all this time, he said, “This period has been tough for me. I trust that there will be light at the end of this tunnel. It has been tough on me because the industry and everything around it works on perception and the perception about me has not been what I would have liked it to be. It was ruined years ago. I don’t know how I survived the last eight years; my family’s support has seen me through it all.”
He concluded saying, “I have tried forgetting the experiences I have had through these years. My aim is to look ahead and move forward. My family is hopeful that the CBI Court will at least be expeditious with the case."
