What is the matter
Sushant Singh Rajput Aaj Tak has not been seen in any of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film, then why has Sanjay been summoned in Sushant’s case, then we give you information about this whole matter, in fact, in 2012, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s entire script of the film Ram Leela Sushant It was written keeping Singh Rajput in mind. Ranbir Singh was finally signed in this film, but before Ranbir, Sushant Singh Rajput was offered this film. One problem with Sushant about the film was that Yash Raj was tied in the contract of the film during the shooting of this film. In this connection, the police have spoken to Aditya Chopra.
There was a contract of three films between Yash Raj and Sushant. Sushant could not do any other film before doing these films. Sushant spoke to Yash Raj director Shanu Sharma about this. Because Sushant was tied in the contract of 3 films, Bhansali Production also paid a royalty of 4 crore 45 lakhs to Yash Raj Films. But after this something happened that Sushant Singh Rajput was thrown out of this film and Ranvir Singh was replaced in his place.
It is said that even in the film Bajirao Mastani, Sushant Singh Rajput’s name was the first final, but eventually he was also replaced. The people of the industry have accused Bollywood’s ruthless attitude and playing with the future of the actors over such behavior with Sushant. After the death of Sushant, producer director Shekhar Kapur said in a tweet that after this, I knew your pain Sushant. I wish we had done it later and later. Based on this tweet, it is being said that Shekhar Kapoor can also be questioned by the police.
