Here are the excerpts of Kritika's friend's interview:
"Around three to four years ago, a model coordinator referred her profile to me, after which I called her for an audition. I also gave an assignment to her. She had already separated from her husband then, and was living in Mumbai alone. She would speak to her mother often, and on a couple of occasions, her mother spoke to me, asking me to take care of her. Her family seemed to be worried about her. It was natural, I suppose; she was a girl, living all alone in Mumbai. But then there were also her drug habits," was quoted as saying.
She asserted how she tried Kritika convincing to quit drugs as it was taking a toll on her physical and mental health. In fact, the actress' friend also recalled how she climbed atop of the building and threatened to commit suicide. In fact, she also reportedly stated that Kritika has multiple blade marks on her wrist.
"Her drug habit was out of hand. She would call some number, and get the drugs delivered to her apartment. I had tried to convince her to quit on many occasions. I counselled her even when she accompanied me to Delhi for my brother’s wedding. She would say she has quit, but every time I bumped into her after such a promise, I would find her high and unstable.Once, under the influence of drugs, she climbed atop her building at Veera Desai Road in Andheri (West), and threatened to commit suicide. The security guard knew that I visited her often, and called me up, saying that Kritika was completely inebriated and uncontrollable. Even the cops arrived at the building. I wasn’t in Mumbai then, and quickly asked my brother to rush to the spot. He brought her down, and took her to her apartment. The landlord then asked her to vacate the flat, and she had to move elsewhere. That’s when I cut all ties with her. My husband and my family were always against me keeping in touch with her, and this incident just blew the lid."

“She didn’t share much, except for the brawl with her husband. Even that she revealed after several months of knowing me, when I probed if she wasn’t scared of living alone in Mumbai. She never mentioned any friends, or boyfriend. Her latest Whatsapp profile picture, I’m told, is of hers with three other girls. I think it’s from her birthday celebrations on June 5,” she added.
Talking about her equation with Choudhary, her friend stated that she wasn't in touch with her for two years now. In fact, the woman came to know about Kritika' death after the police contacted her for investigation.
"I was completely shocked when the cops got in touch with me. I hadn’t spoken to Kritika in at least two years, and yet, the agreement, which was signed in 2016, had my credentials. In fact, the agreement even had a no-objection certificate issued on my behalf. I was perplexed. I told the officers that I was living in Delhi since last year, and had not been in touch with her at all. The crime branch officers asked me to register a case of cheating and impersonation against Kritika’s agent," she was quoted as saying.
Recalling her last meeting with Kritika, her friend revealed that the two met over a year ago accidently and it was then that Choudhary told her that she was pursuing a course in direction. However, there wasn't any conversation thereafter. While the cops are investigating, Kritika's friend has claimed that the actress is murdered.
"I messaged her on her birthday on June 5 this year, but she did not respond. She had blocked me on Whatsapp as well as her Facebook profile after our fall-out. I had never expected such a fate to befall her. Even though she had attempted to kill herself on several occasions, I don’t think this is a case of suicide. Her apartment door was locked from outside. Someone has murdered her," Kritika's friend told Quint.
According to the media reports, the Kritika's family will be arriving to Mumbai today. They will be handed over the body after recording their statements with the cops.
