Many high profile celebrities are being questioned by Mumbai Police in connection with Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide. Now, as per reports, Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali have been summoned by the police for interrogation.
A well-placed police source confirmed that a summon asking Bhansali to appear before the police in the next couple of days has been sent, and the ‘Padmavaat’ director will soon be called for questioning.
The source also said that Shanoo Sharma, casting director of the Yashraj Films, will also be called for the second round of questioning. She was called to the Bandra police station for the first round of questioning on June 28.
Reportedly, Sushant was offered Bhansali’s film ‘Ramleela’ but was later replaced by Ranveer Singh, later the filmmaker also approached the late actor for ‘Bajirao Mastani’ but he was again removed from the film at the last moment. Bhansali will be interrogated about the same by the Mumbai police.
Sources claim that Sushant lost multiple big projects due to Bollywood’s nepotism gang who didn’t want him to work with big banners.
Sources also reveal that actress Kangana Ranaut and director Shekhar Kapur, who have no direct involvement in the investigation but have been actively speaking on Sushant’s struggle in Bollywood may also be invited to record their statements with the police.
