Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has been in the news since a long time. He is quite active on Twitter and does not fear to express his opinions openly. He had recently shared on Twitter how Sushant Singh Rajput had ghosted him a couple of times after agreeing to a project. He said that this happened for the first time during Hasee Toh Phasee which released in 2014. In an recent interview, Anurag Kashyap revealed some more details about it. Earlier, Anurag Kashyap has spoken about how he had roped in Sushant for Hasee Toh Phasee but he went ahead and signed a three film deal with Yash Raj Films. Sushant’s first film with the filmmaker was Shuddh Desi Romance co-starring Parineeti Chopra. However, Anurag has revealed that Parineeti Chopra was not ready to work with Sushant earlier as she did not wanted to work with a television actor.
In an interview with Faye D’Souza, Anurag said, “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 Kashyap shared that everyone understood that going with Yashraj Films was a better deal for Sushant and so not one opposed him for it.
“Sushant Singh Rajput had six blockbusters. It would take another four years of films not working for him to written off totally. A lot of people at that time didn’t know what he was going through. It is only now that it has come out that he was dealing with depression. But the problem the industry had with him at that time was that he was ghosting people. The problem was not that he would misbehave. People who would meet him would say Sushant Singh Rajput is a great boy, who behaves very well, who is sensitive, who is nice. But he would jut ghost and disappear, ” he added.
