Parineeti Chopra Didn’t Wanted To Work With A TV Actor Sushant Singh Rajput;Anurag Kashyap
Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap recently tweeted about late actor Sushant Singh Rajput and how he ‘ghosted’ him a couple of times after agreeing to a project. The first time it happened was during Hasee Toh Phasee, which released in 2014. In a recent interview, Anurag shared more details about all that happened behind the scenes.
Anurag has previously talked 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. His first film with them was Shuddh Desi Romance co-starring Parineeti Chopra. However, Anurag has now said that Parineeti earlier did not want to work with Sushant.
Speaking to 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’. 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 not one opposed him for it. Sushant worked with Parineeti in Shuddh Desi Romance while she worked with Sidharth Malhotra in Hasee Toh Phasee.
