Sushant died by suicide at his Mumbai home on Sunday.
Here's what Chhabra told the police.
According to a report in ABP News, Chhabra revealed that he had recently asked Sushant about his well-being, to which the late actor had replied, "I am not well."
When Chhabra asked the reason, Sushant replied saying, "I am fine, I will be fine."
He added that he had good relations with Sushant, according to DCP Abhishek Trimukhe.
Chhabra was also one of those who arrived at Sushant's home soon after the news of his demise surfaced.
In an Instagram post, Chhabra said that Sushant was like a brother to him and that he felt heartbroken. "Sushant was an introvert but he was really intelligent and talented beyond words. The Industry has lost a gem, an irreplaceable gem," he had written.
Saying that he felt "deeply saddened and shocked," Chhabra added, "I still can't believe it. Our endless conversations have come to an abrupt end. I hope you are in a better place my brother, will always miss you and love you."
