Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has been in the news lately and recently was also accused by actress Payal Ghosh for sexually harassing her. After the allegations were put on him, the filmmaker took it to Twitter and responded to the allegations and said that all the allegations put on him are ‘baseless’.
Before Payal Ghosh opened her side of the story about Anurag Kashyap, of allegedly harassing her, the filmmaker in an interview a journalist has revealed many things. Amongst many, he also spoke about Bhojpuri Ravi Kishan and how in the past he used to smoke weed and might have got cleaned up now after entering into politics.
Earlier, Anurag had shared on Twitter about the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput and shared how he had ‘ghosted’ him a couple of times after agreeing to a project. In the same interview, he also opened up about Sushant Singh Rajput. He recounted the first time when Sushant left him hanging at the time film ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’ in the year 2014. He shared that he had roped in the late actor for the film but somehow he went ahead and signed a three-film deal with Yash Raj Films.
Sushant’s first film with them was Shuddh Desi Romance co-starring Parineeti Chopra. He further shared more details about what all happened behind the scenes, and somehow he further revealed that Parineeti Chopra earlier didn’t want to work with Sushant.
He told the journalist, “He was supposed to do the film 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 doing PK and by the time Hasee Toh Phasee comes out, he will not just be a television actor.”
Continuing about the same, he said, “And she (Parineeti) 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.”
The filmmaker added that everyone understood that choosing YRG was a better deal for the late actor, so no one opposed him for it. However, Sushant allegedly ghosted Anurag again in 2016, as he told the journalist.
