    Sushant Singh Rajput was developing a mobile app based on artificial intelligence, and Denmark-based singer-entrepreneur Arian Romal has shared information with us on the matter. Romal told IANS that Sushant planned to use artificial intelligence, or AI, to help the poor in India.

    "The last time I met Sushant, it was a year ago at a party in Mumbai around March or April. At that time, we had a conversation around technology. He spoke of developing a mobile application. By 2020, there must be something he had built. Where is it? He was build something using AI that would help the poor in India. He spoke about it but didn't reveal much to me because it was his idea and it might get stolen. But he spoke to me about the concept. His aim was to help the poor with his app," Romal said.

    "There are some people that make an impression on you. He was one of those guys. I have been into building apps, so I found the conversation quite interesting. It is amazing for an actor to have so much knowledge and curiosity about AI and what kind of technology is required for it, because that is not the world they live in. This guy was different. He knew the right words and asked the right questions," the singer-entrepreneur recalled.

    Romal has been traveling to India for work over the past few years, and has composed and produced a few Hindi songs, too. The singer-entrepreneur feels, from whatever he has seen of Sushant, the late actor could not have been a drug addict. He adds that there is some mystery about his death that is yet to be solved.

    "I feel uncomfortable reading about Sushant these days. It seems to be a war between two groups. This poor guy who is no more is being targeted. It is very sad that a person who is no more has to go through all this, because some people want to save themselves," he shared.
