Each day brings in a new angle to the Sushant Singh Rajput death case. With so much going on in this case, here are six different statements that came out of this investigation so far…
Some actors take place in your heart, and Sushant Singh Rajput was definitely one of them. The Kai Po Che star had a soaring career, but something went wrong. On 14th June 2020, the actor was found dead in his apartment in Mumbai. His team confirmed the news and released a statement for the same. It was noted that he hung himself and committed suicide.
After the investigation, a statement was released that the actor was battling depression from a few years, and that was the cause of suicide. According to sources, Sushant Singh Rajput had lost his mother in 2002 which was said to have impacted his emotional state. During the investigation, the Mumbai police told the media that he was taking prescription medicine for depression too.
Around 15th June, actress Kangana Ranaut accused several A-listers in the industry by pointing out that SSR was not accepted in the industry and did not have a godfather such as Karan Johar to support him. This went viral, and people started boycotting several directors, actors and producers in the industry over social media. Casting director Mukesh Chhabra, Aditya Chopra, Rajeev Masand recorded statements to the Mumbai police, and there was a case filed against Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Ekta Kapoor, Salman Khan, Karan Johar.
While all this was going on, the media rushed to Patna and caught Sushant Singh Rajput’s father at a bad time. His father filed an FIR against Sushant’s then-girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty who was summoned by the Bandra Police on 18th June for a statement. The ED slapped a money laundering case on Rhea as per the FIR and started their investigation on how SSR had missing funds from his bank accounts. A back and forth fight with Rhea, SSR’s family was constantly in the news as both the parties accused each other of not having Sushant’s back during his struggle. There were WhatsApp chats released, bank account information and what put the story to light was that Sushant had paid agent money to give it to Rhea.
Post this, Rhea became the centre of the story with accusations of murder, overdosing Sushant with medicines and giving out statements to the media that he was claustrophobic. Soon after all this, Rhea’s brother Showik was taken in custody by the NCB.
Photos, conversations and reports were released showing that Rhea, Showik and Dipesh Sawant, a staff member of SSR was arrested in connection with drugs linked to his death. Rajput’s manager Samual Miranda too was taken in custody by the NCB. Soon after all this, Rhea stated that Sara Ali Khan and Rakul Preet Kaur did drugs with her too. She also gave out a few other names from the industry who are currently being questioned.
As of this moment, there has been speculation by a lawyer stating that SSR’s death was streamed on the dark web. Other than this, several actors are being questioned by the NCB.
