Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap had just lately opened in regards to the time when late actor Sushant Singh Rajput ‘ghosted’ him. The first time it occurred was throughout ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’, which launched in 2014.
This was revealed by the director himself in a collection of tweets on the microblogging web site.
In a current interview, Anurag gave inside particulars in regards to the state of affairs.
Earlier, Anurag had talked about roping in Sushant for ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’, however he went forward and signed a three-film cope with Yash Raj Films.
His first movie with them was ‘Shuddh Desi Romance’ co-starring Parineeti Chopra. However, Anurag now claims, that Parineeti earlier didn’t need to work with Sushant.
Speaking to journalist Faye D’Souza, Anurag mentioned: “He was supposed to do the film (Hasee Toh Phasee) and we had to find an actress and we reached out to Parineeti Chopra. She said ‘I don’t want to work with a television actor’. So we explained to her that who Sushant Singh is, he is doing Kai Po Che, he is doing PK and by the time Hasee Toh Phasee comes out, he will not just be a television actor. And she was doing a film called Shuddh Desi Romance and she must have gone and spoken to YRF, they called him and said ‘Why don’t you come and do Shuddh Desi Romance and not do that film?’ And he disappeared on us.”Anurag mentioned that everybody understood that going with YRF was a greater deal for Sushant and so not one opposed him for it. Sushant labored with Parineeti in Shuddh Desi Romance whereas she labored with Sidharth Malhotra in Hasee Toh Phasee.
