Mumbai Police has recorded statements of Sushant Singh Rajput‘s family, friends, and close associates that include his girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, Mukesh Chhabra, Sanjana Sanghi and others. Also, filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali was summoned by the Bandra Police and as per a report in Mid-Day, he was interrogated for around four hours.

A police officer told the publication that the investigation team at Bandra police station had prepared around 20 questions for the filmmaker when he arrived at the police station at 12:30 pm. “Bhansali was quizzed about his association with the actor and which were the films he wanted to work with Rajput. As it has been alleged that the actor was in depression after being dropped out of two big films, ‘Ramleela’ and ‘Bajirao Mastani’, directed by Bhansali, he was questioned about the same. But Bhansali denied dropping the actor from any of his films,” said the officer.

Bhansali told in his statement that Sushant was busy shooting Yash Raj Films ‘Paani’ and refused to work for him. “The director wanted his full attention for two of his big films but as Rajput was busy and refused to work, Bhansali did not ask him again,” the officer added.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali was planning to take Sushant in four of his films. But due to unavailability of dates, the films had other actors,” said Abhishek Trimukhe, DCP (Zone IX), Mumbai Police.

Bhansali also said he met Sushant in 2016 and was not so close to him. He said he didn’t know about his personal details and his depression.

Bhansali was the 30th person to be summoned by the police on Sushant’s suicide case.
