Mumbai: ‘Queen’ actress Kangana Ranaut, who is leading the brigade of celebrities demanding justice for Sushant Singh Rajput, revealed that she was once offered a film opposite the ‘Dil Bechara’ actor.
In a recent interview with ETimes, Kangana stated that filmmaker Homi Adajania had offered her an urban love story with Sushant.
However, Kangana had turned down the film because she was disturbed over the legal notice slapped by Hrithik Roshan.
Spilling the beans, Kangana told ETimes, “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.”
Now, she regrets not being able to share screen space with an amazing person like Sushant.
The actress feels that had she worked with Sushant, their lives would’ve been different now. She could have befriended him and helped him in dealing with the nepotism in the industry.
Referring to Sushant’s tragic demise, Kangana said, “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.”
Post Sushant’s demise, Kangana raised the cudgel against nepotism in Bollywood. She slammed elite filmmakers like Mahesh Bhatt, Yash Chopra and Karan Johar for mocking Sushant and humiliating him.
During an interview with Arnab Goswami, she called out the elite filmmakers and star kids for enjoying more privileges than the outsiders.
She has also been summoned by the Mumbai police for interrogation in Sushant’s death case.
