Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh has confirmed that noted filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt is being called for questioning by the Mumbai Police related to the Sushant Singh Rajput case. Another Bollywood biggie  Karan Johar’s manager has also been called for recording statements on Sushant Singh Rajput, who was found dead in his Bandra residence on June 14. If required, Karan Johar will be summoned as well, Deshmukh said as several people are dissatisfied with the progress of the case. The death of the 34 years old actor hailing from a respectable lineage in Bihar has led to many asking for a CBI Probe. Veteran actor Shatrughan Sinha, popularly known as Bihari Babu in Bollywood, supported the demand for a CBI probe into his death while participating in a TV discussion on Wednesday. He said that he supports the demand for a CBI inquiry into the Sushant Singh Rajput death case. Adding more to the entire discussion about his own film industry, the veteran actor took a dig at filmmaker Karan Johar‘s popular chat show Koffee With Karan. Sinha said that such shows cause controversies that continue for long. Without taking any name, he added that the film industry is not one person’s property and no one can decide about jeopardizing someone’s career or paving roadblocks in their journey. The actor-turned-politician was quoted saying, “During our era, there was no Koffee with Arjun. These kinds of planned events are what cause controversies. As far as those who are being talked about at the moment are all members of our own society, but film industry doesn’t belong to one person that anyone can say, ‘Let’s boycott this person’ or ‘remove this person from the industry’. Who are you to say that? How did you enter the industry and what have you done in life?” Besides some influential leaders, Dr Subramaniam Swamy, Rupa Ganguly, both parliamentarians, and Ishkaran Singh Bhandari, Delhi-based lawyer have also called for a probe by Central Bureau of Investigation into the death of the actor citing several lapses on part of the Mumbai Police. He said the need of the hour is to restore people’s confidence in the judicial system. Ishkaran Singh Bhandari, who leads  ‘a people’s movement’ for justice, said that Sushant’s death should be treated as one of ‘mysterious deaths’ until facts are ascertained by CBI. Speaking to Hindustan Times, he said that the word ‘suicide came within minutes of his death and it became defining narrative on the entire media. “The normal thing is to call it a mysterious death, investigate it and after you investigate it you may come to the conclusion that it’s a tragedy, it’s abetment to suicide, or it’s a foul murder. But how do you come to that conclusion in a few minutes? So that means you have a predetermined conclusion. That was something that started me off. After that the questions kept on piling up, the deeper I went into it,” said Bhandari. (Courtesy to HT for the picture of SSR with friend Rhea Chakravarty).
