Late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, whose mysterious death is being investigated, was a director in two companies along with his girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik.

This clearly shows the convergence of business interests between Rajput and his girlfriend and her bother. Some of the allegations now being made by Rajput’s family, which has filed a case of abetment to suicide against Chakraborty and others, may well find resonance in the business dealings between the two actors who were in a relationship.
