Sushant Singh Rajput‘s death case has brought to the surface several things about the film industry which we all were unaware of. Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has time and again spoken about his equation with Sushant and what all problems he faced while dealing with the talented actor.

Kashyap in a recent interview said that Sushant had a problem of ghosting people. The filmmaker also spoke about how Parineeti Chopra had refused to work with Sushant in ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’. Read on to know the details.

Anurag in his recent interview with Faye D’Souza said that Sushant lost out on the film ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’ because he ghosted them. Further revealing why Parineeti had refused to work with Sushant, the filmmaker said, “He (Sushant) 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.”

Parineeti and Shushant then went on to star in YRF’s ‘Shuddh Desi Romance'(2013). Parineeti was cast opposite Sidharth Malhotra in ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’ that released in 2014.

Also elaborating about Sushant ghosting people in the industry, Anurag shared, “Sushant had six blockbusters. It would take another four years of films not working for him to written off totally. A lot of people at that time didn’t know what he was going through. It is only now that it has come out that he was dealing with depression. But the problem the industry had with him at that time was that he was ghosting people. The problem was not that he would misbehave. People who would meet him would say Sushant Singh Rajput is a great boy, who behaves very well, who is sensitive, who is nice. But he would just Ghost and disappear.”

We wonder what Parineeti has to say about not wanting to work with Sushant just because he was a television actor.
