According to the FIR copy that has made it to the internet, Sushant’s father has accused Rhea of taking him to doctor for treatment of mental illness and keeping all reports with herself. Rhea threatened him reportedly with the medical reports to get things done her way.
In the same vein, the FIR states that Sushant wanted to buy a plot for organic farming with friend Mahesh Shetty but Rhea objected to it. Mahesh is the same guy whom Sushant called before ending his life.
Above all, the FIR alleges that she left his home taking Sushant’s credit cards, jewellery, money, laptop, doctors reports, and more. Moreover, transactions of about ₹15 crore to various unknown accounts from Sushant’s bank account has also mentioned.
Around 40 people have recorded their statements so far in the case. These include Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Aditya Chopra, director Mukesh Chhabra, filmmaker Shekhar Kapoor, and film critic Rajeev Masand.
Sushant’s death sparked off the debate around nepotism in Bollywood. Karan Johar, Mahesh Bhatt, and many others have been targetted for giving preferential treatment to star-kids.
