One month after the unexpected death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, a police complaint against his girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty has been filed by Sushant's father.
Rhea, also an actress, has been accused of abetment to suicide and has been alleged to cheating Sushant financially and harassing him mentally. Sushant's family, which is based in Patna, has gone public with their accusations for the very first time.
34-year-old Sushant Singh Rajput was found hanging from his room's ceiling fan last month. His death has ignited a huge debate about mental health.
A few days ago Rhea had tweeted and called for a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into Sushant Singh Rajput's death, tagging Union Home Minister Amit Shah in a post on Instagram. The actress has been reportedly receiving rape and murder threats on social media over the actor's death which is the reason why she "only wanted to understand what prompted him to take the step".
In a lengthy post before that, the 28-year-old actor opened up about the bond she shared with him saying, "Still struggling to face my emotions... an irreparable numbness in my heart... You are the one who made me believe in love."
The Maharashtra government has ordered an investigation into allegations of professional rivalry along with his reported clinical depression.
Around 40 people have recorded their statements so far in the case, including director-producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali, filmmaker Aditya Chopra, director Mukesh Chhabra, filmmaker Shekhar Kapoor, film critic Rajeev Masand among others.
Sushant Singh Rajput made his Bollywood debut in 2013 with the movie - "Kai Po Che". He was appreciated for his performance in the 2015 movie "Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!", "MS Dhoni: The Untold Story", "Sonchiriya" and "Chhichhore". "Dil Bechara", his last movie that was released online on Friday on Disney+ Hotstar, has drawn praise from critics and has had a historic opening.
