The Mumbai Police will record the statements of filmmakers Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Shekhar Kapur in connection with the investigations into actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death last month.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali, known for lavishly mounted blockbusters like "Padmaavat" and "Ram-Leela", will be asked about allegations that the actor was battling depression as he had been forced to drop out of his films because of a contract he had signed with Yash Raj Films, sources said.
In light of this information, the police are eager to pursue the investigation by recording Sanjay Leela Bansali's statement. Earlier, Sushant's rumoured girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty was also quizzed at Bandra police station for almost ten hours. After her, so far, the actor's Dil Bechaara co-star Sanjana Sanghi, and Shanoo Sharma, a prominent casting director with the Yash Raj Films were also questioned by the police.
The Maharashtra government ordered an investigation into allegations that the actor was upset about losing acting jobs because of cliques and nepotism in the Hindi film industry, besides reportedly dealing with clinical depression.
Now, filmmaker Shekhar Kapur is going to be interrogated by the Mumbai Police. The National-Award winning director had shared a cryptic tweet where he hinted at some people who let Sushant down so bad that the actor would 'weep on his shoulder'.

I wish Iwas around the last 6 months. I wish you had reached out to me. What happened to you was their Karma.
