Karan Johar may be summoned too, as per reports.
Over 35 people have so far been questioned in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case, including Bollywood personalities like Aditya Chopra and Sanjay Leela Bhansali. The police are investigating various angles in the case including that of professional rivalry.
Mahesh Bhatt and Karan Johar are two names that have cropped up very often in the wake of Sushant's death. While Karan was trolled by social media users for allegedly mocking Sushant on his show Koffee With Karan, Mahesh faced netizens' ire for allegedly being close to Sushant's rumoured girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty and labelling the actor as 'depressed'.
Now, according to latest reports in various Indian media outlets, both Mahesh and Karan's manager will be questioned in the ongoing investigation into Sushant's death. Karan may be called too, according to reports.
