Rajeev Masand, a prominent journalist and film critic, has been summoned by Mumbai police in connection with the ongoing investigation into the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, according to a report in The Times of India.
Rajeev had been receiving flak from netizens after allegedly writing 'blind items' about Sushant, calling him a 'skirt chaser', among other things.
Actress Kangana Ranaut, in a television interview recently, named Rajeev as one of the people who should be summoned in the police case.
She told Republic TV, "I am not saying that anyone wanted Sushant to die, but definitely doomed. These people are emotional vultures. They want to see people lynch themselves. To date, Mahesh Bhatt is selling Parveen Babi's illness in so many versions through his films. Why is Mumbai Police not summoning - Aditya Chopra, Mahesh Bhatt, Karan Johar, Rajeev Masand? These 4 people. Why, because they are powerful? With this interview, I only have things to lose."
Other Bollywood celebrities like writer Apurva Asrani and actor Manoj Bajpayee have also been outspoken in their criticism of Rajeev.
