Producer Ekta Kapoor has responded to a criminal complaint filed against her in connection with Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
The case was filed under Sections 306, 109, 504 and 506 in a Muzaffarpur court on Wednesday morning by an advocate named Sudhir Kumar Ojha against Ekta Kapoor, Salman Khan, Karan Johar, Aditya Chopra, Sajid Nadiadwala, Bhushan Kumar and Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Ojha alleged that these prominent Bollywood personalities forced Sushant to commit suicide under a conspiracy which, he pleaded, amounted to murder.
Ekta responded on social media: “Thank you for the case for not casting Sushi.. when actually I launched him. I’m beyond upset at how convoluted theories can be. Please let family and friends mourn in peace! Truth shall prevail. Cannot believe this.”
Ojha claimed that the persons he had namd to ensure that Sshant’s films did not get released and that the late actor was not even invited to film functions by them.
Ojha said that Sushant Singh Rajput’s death had not only hurt the people of Bihar but the entire country.
Sushant rose to stardom working in Ekta Kapoor’s TV show “Pavitra Rishta”. The series, his second television outing long before he cracked Bollywood, made him a household name.
