Suraj Pancholi, who was in judicial custody for allegedly abetting actress Jiah Khan's death, has got bail and returned home. His mother Zarina Wahab is relieved and says she is also praying for the Nishabd actor.
Suraj, who was arrested on June 10, was granted bail by Bombay High Court Monday. Mr Pancholi was required to pay a surety of Rs 50,000 and surrender his passport. He will also have to present himself at a police station on alternate days. He returned home on July 2.
"It's a great relief for me as for the past few days we haven't slept peacefully. Today, he is back. I am very happy... I thank everyone whoever has prayed for my son. I am extremely happy that my son is back home," Zarina told reporters at her residence.
The Chitchor actress wanted to cook Suraj's favourite dish as he was coming home after 21 days.
"I asked him what to make and he said whatever you will make, I will eat. He is a very simple boy," she said.
Jiah, who also worked in Ghajini and Housefull, committed suicide on June 3.
Talking about the late actress, Zarina said: "Jiah should also get justice. I pray for that girl. Suraj is innocent. Many people fight over phone... that doesn't mean you end your life. He has just come. I want him to take rest, don't want to put pressure on him. Time is the greatest healer."
