In Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide case, Karan Johar’s manager along with Mahesh Bhatt will be summoned in the coming week in connection with the case. They will be questioned on the grounds of coterie in Bollywood that prevents outsiders from entering or surviving in the film industry. However, Kangana Ranaut did not like the fact that instead of the director, his manager is summoned. She accuses Mumbai Police of ‘displaying blatantly shameless nepotism even in issuing summons’. She further states that she has been summoned and not her manager but ‘Chief Minister’s son’s best friend’s manager is called for questioning’.
