Sushant Singh Rajput passed away on June 14, 2020, and he left a huge void in the industry. After Sushant passed away there has been huge unrest among the fans and the rest of the nation. Abhishek Kapoor, who had directed Sushant Kedarnath and Kai Po Che is often seen talking about the late actor and saying that Sushant was not appreciated enough until his passing. We sat down for an exclusive chat with the Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui director and asked him if Sushant was the first choice for the movie.

Abhishek Kapoor told Bollywood Bubble, “Sonchiriya and Sushant did get a lot of love after his passing away. Maybe the media didn’t acknowledge him for his work. Like in Kedarnath and how there is something in that film and there is love, truth in it. But it was not acknowledged until he passed away, which suddenly jolted people out of their slumber and they all stood up to say that they love this guy. He was a special man, it’s a big loss that he is not around here.”

Talking about Sushant being the first choice for Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, “No no, I have heard this rumour as well. But this is a guy from Punjab. The casting of the film began after his passing away. I had not even finished the script, normally I dont cast in a film until it is written.”
