    Sanjay Leela Bhansali, actress Kangana Ranaut and film director Shekhar Kapur will be questioned by Mumbai police in connection with Rajput’s death.
    Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death by suicide is under investigation by the Mumbai police. In a new development, according to Times Now, film-maker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, actress Kangana Ranaut and film director Shekhar Kapur will be questioned by Mumbai police in connection with Rajput’s death.

    While Bhansali is likely to be summoned soon, Ranaut and Kapur will also be interrogated by the police. According to a report in the Times of India, Bhansali and Rajput shared mutual admiration for each other’s work and working together was on cards for the two of them, not once, but four times. However, due to the date clashes, nothing materialised.

    Ranaut, on the other hand, has been quite vocal about Bollywood not giving the ‘Kedarnath’ actor his due and has accused industry bigwigs of abetment to suicide.

    Kapur, too, sent out a tweet post Rajput’s demise, sharing that he knew the story about those who disappointed the late actor. ‘What happened to you was their Karma. Not yours,’ Kapur wrote in his tweet.

    Previously, Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh shared on Twitter that the Mumbai Police will also probe the 'professional rivalry' angle.

    The late actor’s close friends - actress Rhea Chakraborty, Mahesh Shetty and several others have already recorded their statements with the Mumbai Police.

    Known for films like 'MS Dhoni: The Untold Story' and 'Kedarnath', Rajput was found hanging at his Bandra home on June 14. Initial reports suggested that the actor had allegedly died of suicide. No suicide note was found in Rajput’s apartment. His post-mortem report said that he had died of asphyxiation.

    The actor was cremated at the Pawan Hans crematorium in Vile Parle on June 15.

    A Look At B-Town Celeb Feuds

    Veteran actors Anupam Kher and Naseeruddin Shah recently engaged in a war of words which got pretty ugly, pretty soon. In an interview with one of the online portals, Shah called Kher a ‘clown’ and a ‘sycophant’. “He does not need to be taken seriously, he is a clown. Any number of his contemporaries can attest to his sycophantic nature,” Shah had to say about his ‘A Wednesday’ co-star.

    Kher responded in a video message by accusing Shah of indulging in ‘substance abuse’. Kher also said that if Shah could criticise the likes of Shah Rukh Khan, Dilip Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Virat Kohli, then he is ‘in good company’.

    However, Kher and Shah are not the only two actors who have locked horns and engaged in an intense public verbal duel. Several B-town celebs have launched verbal missiles at each other, sans inhibitions, that too in the public domain. We take a look at some of the ugliest Bollywood celebrity feuds that grabbed headlines in recent times.

    Mumbai police has nothing better to do and are using this opportunity to keep them in limelight by harassing prominent figures in the film world. Nothing will come out of this tamasha except their name will be made public for another day. Jerks all of them!
