After Mumbai Police summoned filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt in the SSR death case, actor Koena Mitra said that filmmaker Mukesh Bhatt should also be questioned in the matter. While talking to a news channel, the Bigg Boss 13 contestant said that what Mukesh Bhatt said right after Sushant’s demise was ‘gross’ and he should be interrogated for his statements about the late actor. Koena, who is known for speaking her mind, mentioned that the filmmaker compared Sushant to Parveen Babi and the police should ask him if he tried to help SSR after knowing that he was suffering from depression.

Koena said, “I want to know why there is no inquiry about Mukesh Bhatt, I don’t know why police did not question him. I mean how do you know that Sushant was into depression and if you knew why didn’t you help him. That was such a gross statement where you are calling Sushant Singh Rajput the next Parveen Babi.” Also Read - Kangana Ranaut Lashes Out at Mukesh Bhatt For Saying Sushant Singh Rajput Was Going The 'Parveen Babi Way'
