A criminal case has been filed in Bihar against Salman Khan, Karan Johar, Aditya Chopra, Sajid Nadiadwala, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Bhushan Kumar, Ekta Kapoor and Dinesh Vijan for conspiracies against Sushant Singh Rajput that allegedly pushed him to commit suicide. However, there is no such historical proof as Rajput reportedly shared good equations with several of the people named in the case.
Kapoor, who introduced Rajput to the TV industry, spoke out about the case on Instagram, “Thank you for the case for not casting Sushi.. when actually I launched him. I’m beyond upset at how convoluted theories can be. Please let family and friends mourn in peace! Truth shall prevail. Cannot believe this.”
According to a source, Rajput and Bhansali had immense respect for each other,“Many people in the industry are expressing their grief and not many know that both Sushant Singh Rajput and Sanjay Leela Bhansali were quite fond of each other as well as their work. In fact, not once but 4 times working together was on the cards for them, SLB had offered him 4 films, but due to date issues, things didn’t materialise.”, the source told ETimes, “As far as their equation is concerned, Sushant had taken quite a strong stand for SLB when the director was attacked in Jaipur and while Sushant condemned the violence he also dropped his surname ‘Rajput’ to show support to the filmmaker.” Rajput was offered the lead role in ‘Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela’ (2013).
A court hearing will take place on 3rd July. The cause of Rajput’s suicide is currently unknown.
