Earlier, in an interview with Republic TV, Kangana had questioned the Mumbai Police for not calling KJo, Mahesh Bhatt, and Aditya Chopra to record their statements in the SSR case. While Chopra was questioned last Sunday, Bhatt will be interrogated in the coming week.
Apart from Kangana, many fans of SSR have been requesting the Mumbai Police to question the biggies of Bollywood including Karan Johar and Mahesh Bhatt. Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Shekhar Kapur, and Mukesh Chhabra have already recorded their statements in the matter. SSR’s alleged girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, journalist Rajeev Masand, the late actor’s family members, his roommates, and friends were also called to the police station. Apart from these, various officials from the big production houses like YRF casting director Shanoo Sharma and SSR’s publicist Rohini Iyer have been interrogated in the past.
Sushant died on June 14. The police said that he was found hanging to the ceiling fan of his apartment at Bandra’s Mont Blanc building. The actor was 34-years-old.
