Sushant was found hanging in his Mumbai apartment on June 14, 2020. Postmortem results stated that his death was caused by asphyxiation due to hanging. Sushant was reportedly suffering from depression, and had been seeking treatment for it from around six months.
According to news reports, Reshma has helped many a-list celebrities bag major endorsement deals. She has worked with Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, Alia Bhatt and others.
As of now, the Mumbai Police have questioned 35 people with respect to Sushant's suicide case, including filmmakers like Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Mukesh Chhabra, and Sushant's rumoured girlfriend, Rhea Chakraborty.
Meanwhile, a Bihar court has rejected a petition seeking to register a case against celebrities Karan Johar, Salman Khan, Ekta Kapoor and others for alleged abetting of Sushant's suicide. The petition was filed by local advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha, who claimed that certain people were to be blamed for driving the actor to suicide, and named Kangana as one of the 'witnesses' to this.
