Kangana Ranaut recently revealed that she was offered a movie with Shushant Singh Rajput. But, she turned the movie down and the reason behind this was the legal notice she received from Hrithik Roshan.
Kangana Ranaut and Sushant Singh Rajput’s Movie
In an interview with ETimes, Kangana Ranaut mentioned that she was being considered for a movie by filmmaker Homi Adjania. The male lead in the movie would have been Sushant Singh Rajput, and the movie was around an urban couple.
In the interview, the Bollywood actress said, “I still remember that day when Homi called me to his office. I was about to step out and I was given the legal notice that Hrithik Roshan had sent me about criminal charges. In a dazed state, I went to Homi, and he narrated me a love story and I could not just focus on it because I was so shattered. I told him I would revisit it, but nobody knew my state of mind. After that, for one year, the kind of filth that I faced, the kind of butchering that I faced, I didn’t sign any film that year, but I vaguely remember that story. It was a love story about an urban couple.”
She then went on to elaborate that she added, “When this whole thing happened, it occurred to me that if I had done that film, would our lives have been different now? I don’t know. I just don’t know. It is so unfortunate at so many levels. Would I be his friend and would I have given him a perspective for not longing for acceptance? I don’t know what I would do on finding such an amazing person. That was so unfortunate and this makes me feel so bad. Had I done that film, what would our lives be, I don’t know. I can only think about it.”
Nepotism in Bollywood
Sushant Singh Rajput died on 14 June 2020 and the reason for death was suicide. Since then, many people raised their voices on how he was a victim of nepotism in Bollywood. This also put light on how other members of the industry such as Inder Kumar went through the same.
Kangana Ranaut has always spoken freely about this issue during interviews. But, she has started speaking up even further about the nepotism in Bollywood and how hard it has become for fresh talent without any connections to enter into the industry.
