It’s been almost two weeks since the passing away of one of the finest actors of Bollywood, Sushant Singh Rajput, right from his family to fans, everyone seems to be in grief and utter shock. 

As the family doubts, if it’s a suicide or murder case, the Police have been putting all the effort into discovering the truth. As a part of the investigation and statement recording, recently, Sushant’s cousin Niraj Kumar Bablu was interviewed about the actor’s nature and if he was going through depression. 

As per Bablu’s statement, the late actor was under some sort of pressure from the Bollywood industry. During this, he revealed that the actor was on good talking terms with renowned producers like- Ekta Kapoor and Karan Johar. 

Further, Bablu told ANI that- “We are still completing the religious formalities of Sushant. As far as the case is concerned, there are big personalities in the industry who have spoken about Bollywood’s behavior with Sushant. So we definitely feel that there was some pressure on him from Bollywood otherwise these big Bollywood celebrities wouldn’t have supported Sushant, so this should be investigated,”

He added- “Police will investigate and will try to find out the reason for his death. Someone may speak what they want to, but we are going with the police investigation. Police won’t stop investigation based on Sandip’s statement or what I say to the media. If anyone tries to misguide or hide the truth from the investigation, Police won’t accept it. They will have to put up the puzzle altogether. We as a family don’t want to interfere in it, once all the aspects come out, we will see what needs to be done.”

Further, he said that as of now, the Mumbai Police is actively participating in the investigation, but if needed, we will seek the help of CBI to look into the matter. 

The actor was found hanging in his Bandra, Mumbai’s apartment, on an afternoon of 14th June 2020.
