Sushant Singh Rajput’s father, KK Singh, has registered an FIR against actress Rhea Chakraborty at Rajiv Nagar Police Thana in Patna. He has alleged that Rhea took money from Sushant and instigated him to commit suicide. Sushant and Rhea dated for a while before the actor died by suicide on June 14. Patna police have met with DCP (Deputy Commissioner of Police) of the Mumbai investigating team.
Sushant’s father, however, had not registered a complaint to the Mumbai police when he was questioned by them in June. He had said that he has nothing against anyone.
Mumbai’s Bandra police is investigating the death of the late actor. Earlier, they had questioned Rhea in connection with the case. In her statement, Rhea had revealed that Sushant had ended his contract with Yash Raj Films (YRF) and had even asked her to do the same.
Yash Raj Films (YRF) had a three-film contract with Sushant. These included Shuddh Desi Romance, Detective Byomkesh Bakshy, and Shekhar Kapur’s Paani. Paani, however, got shelved due to creative differences between Shekhar and YRF.
In his statement, filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali had said that he offered three films to Sushant but the actor could not take those up because of his contract with YRF. Aditya Chopra, head of YRF, was also questioned regarding the case. Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt recorded his statement with the police yesterday (July 27). Karan Johar will also be called for questioning later this week.
