On 14th June 2020, Actor Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead in his Bandra apartment hanging from the ceiling of his apartment. His death sparked outrage all over social media leading to the release of his film ‘Dil Bechara’ that became a big hit on OTT platform Disney + Hotstar. His film, ‘Dil Bechara’ got 95 million within first 24 hours of release beating ‘Games of Thrones’ coming on the platform.
While his film became a hit on OTT platforms, his death probe is creating controversy on a daily basis. The Mumbai Police is still inquiring, and story is constantly developing. At present, the state of Maharashtra and Bihar in tussle where you can see war of words, and counter allegation taking place between Sushant’s family and Rhea(his girlfriend), the middle of this - Kangana Ranuat is jumping the gun asking to probe into the nepotism angle, while names of people like Mahesh Bhatt and Karan Johar is also surfacing around.
The Enforcement Directorate has filed a case of money laundering in Sushant Singh Rajput’s death raw as Rs. 15 crores are suspected to be missing from his bank account. A police team from Bihar’s Patna is in Mumbai trying to investigate the matter of 2 companies set up by Mr. Rajput with his girlfriend, Rhea Chakraborty.
BJP MLA from the state of Maharashtra has alleged involvement of a young Minister in the death of Sushant Singh Rajput. While political war of words is going on regarding who was involved, and who was not, CBI probe has been demanded but not fulfilled.
Sushant’s father has alleged that Rhea, Sushant’s girlfriend, drove him to suicide after cheating him and taking his money away from him. This statement of his father has come after his father did lodge First Information Report (FIR) against her. While Rhea did tweet about transferring the case from Patna to Mumbai. While Rhea is defending herself and trying to give herself a clean chit – Kanagana Ranuat called her a ‘gold digger’ and has come out saying that even Mahesh Bhatt must be involved in his death. All of this while, the bodyguard of Mr. Rajput has said that Mr. Rajput used to sleep while Rhea and her family were having party on his money. The Rajput family lawyer suggests a theory that industry ganged up against him. This is proved by the films he lost in the last six months before his death.
At the moment, we do not know the full story and it is still under investigation. But, many question arises regarding the what has happened such as if it is a suicide where is the suicide note? If Rhea drove him to suicide, how did she do it all alone or her name being put in front to cover up big names? Has nepotism actually have something to do with it or is Kangana just using her death to further her own cause? As these questions remain unanswered, we must keep in mind his case in no ordinary case and will require thorough investigation before we get to know the real reason behind his death. At the moment, there are only allegations, and no substance.
