Suraj Pancholi, who is in jail till 27th June for abetting actress Jiah Khan's suicide, assisted Sanjay Leela Bhansali in his film Guzaarish. In an interview to a leading daily, Sanjay talked about Suraj and said, "Suraj came to me to assist me for Guzaarish. And I must admit, he was extremely hard working, focussed and soft-spoken. Suraj would be on the sets on time and he was a fast learner. There were no airs about being a star son. I must say Zarina and Aditya have done a good job of bringing him up."
Not many people know that Aditya Pancholi and Sanjay Leela Bhansali live in the same building. Not only this, Sanjay's mother and Suraj Pancholi's mother Zarina Wahab are best friends. Suraj's girlfriend Jiah Khan committed suicide by hanging herself on June 3rd.
