Mumbai:

Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut, who has been summoned by the Mumbai police in connection to actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death, would not be able to appear at the police station to record her statement as she is in Himachal Pradesh but a police team can either visit her or record her statement via an electronic medium, her lawyer told NDTV.

The actor, who is currently at her Manali home, has been asked to appear before the Bandra police to record her statement.

Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead at his apartment in Mumbai's Bandra on June 14. The 34-year-old actor died by suicide, police say.

A day after the actor's death, Kangana Ranaut had released a two-minute video speaking highly of the Sushant Singh Rajput and alleging that he was a victim of nepotism in the film industry.

Kangana Ranaut's lawyer confirmed to NDTV that his client has received summon from the police.  He added that his team has informed the police that Kangana Ranaut is in Manali since March 17 and has requested police to send a team to the state to record her statements in person.

The police have so far questioned a few Bollywood personalities in the case, including casting director Mukesh Chhabra, Yash Raj Films (YRF) Chairman Aditya Chopra, YRFs casting director Shanoo Sharma and film critic Rajeev Masand.

Sushant Singh Rajput debuted in the 2013 film "Kai Po Che" and went on to do several films, including "PK", "MS Dhoni: The Untold Story", "Kedarnath", "Sonchiriya" and "Chhichhore" - one of his last films that was widely appreciated.

His death led to a deluge of tribute and recriminations on social media involving the Hindi film industry, which has been battling allegations of nepotism and cliques.
