Advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha moved court and filed case in Bihar’s Muzaffarpur against eight people including Salman Khan, Karan Johar and Ekta Kapoor for forcing Sushant Singh Rajput to commit suicide.

“In the complaint, I have alleged that Sushant Singh Rajput was removed from around seven films and some of his films were not released. Such a situation was created which forced him to take the extreme step,” the advocate said.

Kangana Ranaut, who spoke about nepotism in the industry much earlier has been had been listed as a witness in the case.

Producer Ekta Kapoor responded to the allegations in an Instagram post and said that she was ‘beyond upset’ with the conspiracy theories which is totally baseless. She wrote, “Thanku for the case for not casting sushi....when Actually I LAUNCHED HIM. I’m beyond upset at how convoluted theories can b! [email protected] family n frns mourn in peace! Truth [email protected] CANNOT BELIEVE THIS!!!!!”
