Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap revealed that he didn’t want to work with late actor Sushant Singh Rajput for his own reasons.
Replying to a Twitter user who said that the film industry boycotted and sidelined Sushant for years and tagged him bipolar, Kashyap posted a screenshot of a chat with Sushant’s manager. The chat he had with the late actor’s manager is dated May 22 and June 14.
Anurag tweeted, “I am sorry that I am doing this but this chat is from three weeks before he passed away. Chat with his manager on 22 May… haven’t don’t it so far but feel the need now .. yes I didn’t want to work with him for my own reasons…”
He then went on to share the conversation he had with Sushant’s manager on June 14, when the actor died. He added, “Also My conversation with his manager on June 14th. It will show you things if you want to see. It feels horrible to do this but can’t keep it back .. and for those as well who think we didn’t care for the family. As honest as I can be .. judge me all you want ..”
Meanwhile, several Bollywood celebs extended support to actress Rhea Chakraborty who is sent to 14-day judicial custody by a local court in the drug case related to Sushant’s death.
Anurag in his tweet, wrote, “Everybody baying for Rhea’s blood, asking questions like how did you know she didn’t do this or that to him?how do you what was he going through?are forgetting that the whole industry has actually known and seen and interacted with SSR over last 9-10 years. Yes we know better 1/2”
“And that is also the reason the whole industry has been quiet so far out of respect for him. And now it is that very knowledge of SSR that has again brought everyone out here together to stand in solidarity for Rhea because it’s gone too far,” he added.
