Rajput allegedly died by suicide on 14 June, Mumbai Police said. Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh had said that the police will also probe the angle of "professional rivalry" which was alleged to be the cause of the suicide.

Investigations in the untimely demise of the actor is currently underway. The police have recorded the statements of Dil Bechara director Mukesh Chhabra and Rhea Chakraborty.

A lawyer in Bihar on 17 June filed a criminal complaint against eight people, including Salman Khan, Karan Johar, Ekta Kapoor, Aditya Chopra and Sanjay Leela Bhansali for allegedly abetting the suicide of Rajput.
