The statement of filmmaker Aditya Chopra, of Yash Raj Films, was recorded in connection with the ongoing investigation into actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death, Mumbai Police said on Saturday. Chopra's statement was recorded at Versova Police Station.   
According to Mumbai Police, the statements of over 35 people - including Sushant's rumoured girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty - have been recorded in the probe so far. Sushant was found dead in his Mumbai residence on June 14. Police are investigating various angles in the case, including professional rivalry and also the actor's mental health.
Sushant's psychiatrist Kersi Chavda recorded his statement to police recently and shared details about the actor's mental state before his death. During the investigation, it reportedly came to light that Sushant was constantly troubled and had met more than 4 doctors in 5 months.
Sushant's fans have been requesting a CBI enquiry into his death for a while now.
BJP MP Subramanian Swamy has also advocated for a probe by the CBI and wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in this regard.

However, Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh recently stated that the Mumbai police is capable of handling the case, ruling out requests for a CBI probe.
