Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead in his Bandra apartment on June 14. As per the autopsy report, the actor died due to asphyxia caused because of hanging, however, many conspiracy theories surfaced on social media suspecting that he did not die by suicide.
According to Kangana, producer-director Mahesh Bhatt, Karan Johar, Aditya Chopra, and film critic Rajeev Masand should be called for questioning.
Mumbai Police is interrogating everyone close or in acquaintance with Sushant Singh Rajput to dig out the reason behind the actor’s big step. Until now, they have recorded statements of 38 people including family members, close friends, filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty and others.
Kangana Ranaut has said she will return her Padma Shri award if she is unable to prove the claims she has made about actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide. After Sushant died by suicide on June 14, the actress had released a couple of videos on social media accusing several members of the film industry of propagating nepotism.
“They (Mumbai Police) summoned me, and I asked them too, that I’m in Manali, that you can send somebody to take my statement, but I have not received anything after that. I am telling you, if I have said anything, which I can’t testify, which I can’t prove, and which is not in public domain, I will return my Padma Shri,” Kangana told Republic TV.
“I don’t deserve it. I am not that person who will go on record (to make such statements), and everything that I have said is in public domain,” she added.
Kangana continued, “Tomorrow, needy outsiders like Taapsee Pannu, Swara Bhasker will get up and say that they love this industry. I am only saying if you love this industry and if you love Karan Johar, then why are you not getting work like Alia or Ananya? Their whole existence is proof of nepotism. There will be articles that will make me look like a mad person after this, I know.”
Actor Rhea Chakraborty, a close friend of Sushant Singh Rajput, had on Thursday requested Home Minister Amit Shah to order the CBI to investigate the case.
The Mumbai police is capable of handling the death case of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, said Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh, ruling out requests for a CBI probe in the case.
