It has been two months that actor Sushant Singh Rajput died mysteriously and his family is still fighting to get justice. Everyone wants to know what exactly happened on June 14 when the actor allegedly decided to take his own life. While Sushant's girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty claims that the actor was battling depression, his family, staff and close friends refuse to believe that a lively person like Sushant can commit suicide and that he was under any kind of depression or mental illness. On July 25, the actor's father KK Singh filed an FIR against Rhea accusing her of abetment to suicide and claimed that she tried to separate him from his family and compelled him to feel depressed for her own advantage. He also claimed that the Jalebi actress used Sushant's fame and money for her own benefit. However, later, the family alleged murder and not suicide.

On Thursday, Sushant's cook Dipesh appeared before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and revealed that Rhea was controlling the late actor. Earlier, Sushant's former business manager Shruti Modi had also claimed that  Rhea used to take all the decisions related to the actor's personal and professional life. The pages from the actor's dairy have also come into the light which state that he had 'solid plans' for the year 2020 and wanted to make his Hollywood debut. Even his sister Shweta Singh Kirti questioned how can I person die by suicide when he was "Somebody who had solid plans. Somebody who knew how to make his dreams into reality... somebody who was an eternal positivist!"
