Anurag Kashyap: Parineeti Chopra refused to work with Sushant Singh Rajput as he was a ‘TV actor’
g Kashyap says Parineeti Chopra rejected Hasee Toh Phasee with Sushant Singh Rajput as he was a TV actor
Indian film director Anurag Kashyap made some new revelations regarding the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput. In his recent interview, Kashyap revealed how Sushant ghosted him a couple of times. He also added that actress Parineeti Chopra has initially refused to work with the Raabta actor as he was a tv actor.
In his recent interview with journalist 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’.”
He added, “ 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 said that everyone understood that going with YRF was a better deal for Sushant and so no one opposed him for it.
Sushant allegedly ghosted Anurag again in 2016after he was approached for a movie wherein Anurag wanted an actor who can play someone based out of Uttar Pradesh. Soon MS Dhoni: The Untold Story released, post the movie’s success, Sushant never called Anurag back.
Parineeti later did Shuddh Desi Romance with Sushant Singh Rajput.
