After Sanjana Sanghi, Shekhar Kapur To Be Quizzed By Mumbai Police In Sushant Singh Rajput Death Case
Mumbai: As part of the investigation into the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, Mumbai Police will soon record the statement of filmmaker Shekhar Kapur.
After Sushant was found hanging in his Bandra residence on June 14, the filmmaker had posted a strong-worded opinion. “I knew the pain you were going through. I knew the story of the people that let you down so bad that you would weep on my shoulder. I wish I was around the last 6 months. I wish you had reached out to me. What happened to you was their Karma. Not yours,” Kapur had tweeted.
He was also to direct the ambitious “Paani” starring Sushant at one point for Yash Raj Films (YRF), which was the actor’s third film with the production house.
Sushant had a three-film deal with YRF with the first being Shuddh Desi Romance” in 2013. It was followed by “Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!” in 2015.
According to the contract obtained by Mumbai Police, “Paani” was his third film with YRF, but the film reportedly ran into rough weather after Kapur had differences with the production house.
Sushant then ended his contract in 2015 and opted to work with other banners, according to India Today.
Meanwhile, police have recorded the statement of Sushant’s co-star in his last film “Dil Bechara”, Sanjana Sanghi. She was reportedly grilled at Bandra police station for around seven hours.
The late actor’s sister Meetu and her husband, and his friend and actor Mahesh Shetty also met the police on Tuesday.
