Mumbai Police will soon issue summons to actor Kangana Ranaut to record her statement in connection with the case related to the suicide of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, officials said on Thursday. 
This news follows reports from the actress's team that she has been trying to reach out to the police but hasn't been summoned as yet to give her evidence.
Her sister Rangoli had even posted a screenshot of the messages she had exchanged with Mumbai police. 

A day after Sushant Singh Rajput's suicide, Kangana Ranaut had released a two-minute video speaking highly of the deceased actor and accusing certain sections of the film industry of not acknowledging the star's talent.
She had also said that some of the last social media posts by the actor made it evident that he was struggling to survive in the industry.
According to the police, statements of 39 people, including film critic Rajeev Masand, director-producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali, and filmmaker Aditya Chopra have been recorded in the investigation so far.
The Mumbai Police had recently said the statements of three psychiatrists and one psychotherapist have been recorded in connection with the suicide investigation.
Rajput was found dead in his Mumbai residence on June 14.
