Kangana Ranaut in an exclusive interaction with Republic Media Network's Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami opened up about conspiracy theories around Sushant Singh Rajput's unfortunate demise. Questioning the role of director Mahesh Bhatt in Sushant Singh Rajput's life, Kangana asked, "Why was he counseling Sushant?" 

Sushant was found dead in his Bandra apartment on June 14. As per the autopsy report, the actor died due to asphyxia caused because of hanging. Kangana claimed that production houses YRF and Dharma worked in sync not to kill, but to see him fall. Kangana said, " Sushant's girlfriend at the time Rhea in her statement mentioned Mahesh Bhatt. How is he related? Bhatt's first AD has written how Bhatt used to consel him. Who was Mahesh Bhatt in Sushant's life? 'You are not drifting but drowning, like Parveen Babi', Bhatt's AD said that. Even Abhishek Kapur said, "His death was a complete dismantling of a fragile mind." Rajeev Masand called him a 'rapist', 'drug addict' in his blind items, aren't they accountable for their claims?"

In an explosive interview on 'Nation Wants To Know', Kangana later also added, "What was Mahesh Bhatt doing between Rhea and him? Everyone wants to know. Why is Mumbai Police not calling Mahesh Bhatt for questioning?"
