The investigation into the sudden demise of Sushant Singh Rajput is being pushed by Mumbai police, with more and more related persons interrogated.

Contradictory statements from Aditya Chopra and Sanjay Leela Bhansali

As we have informed before, Sushant Singh Rajput was reported to be rejected several films, including some at YRF. That’s why his contract with Yash Raj Films has been requested by the police and involved people were called upon for interrogation. One of the movies Sushant was offered but unable to join during the time he worked with YRF is Bajirao Mastani by Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

According to Sanjay Leela Bhansali, he was the one who approached YRF to offer Sushant Singh Rajput a role in his movie. However, the YRF officials told him that Sushant couldn’t work with him because of an overlapped timetable with the shooting of Paani. However, the latter was never released.

Any Bollywood actor would wish to work with the veteran filmmaker Bhansali.

For Aditya Chopra, he said Bhansali didn’t approach his production house to allow Sushant to work in the movie Bajirao Mastani. The reason why Paani was shelved was not related to Sushant either. It’s due to the creative differences between Aditya Chopra and Shekhar Kapur.

The YRF chairman also confirmed that there’s no issue in allowing Sushant to work with other filmmakers as he let the late actor to join the biopic MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, which was considered the most successful cricketers movies in the history.

Our analysis – Who’s probably telling lies?

Based on what we have known about YRF production house and from what Aditya Chopra and Sanjay Leela Bhansali reported to the police, we raise here some doubts and analysis for your reference. Please note this is just our opinion, not the final conclusion from Mumbai police.

First, let’s talk about Bhansali. This filmmaker is the brain behind many blockbusters and some of his movie were reportedly offered to Sushant Singh Rajput. They include Goliyon ki Rasleela: Ramleela, Padmavat and Bajirao Mastani. All these three films gained widespread recognition after that, but Sushant couldn’t join any of them due to date issues with YRF projects.

In fact, after the death of Sushant, Sanjay Leela Bhansali was not the first person involved. He didn’t gain any benefit if mentioning Sushant in his past projects either. If Bhansali wanted to avoid trouble, he could tell the police he didn’t approach YRF to offer Sushant a role in his Bajirao Mastani. The police won’t bother him.

Aditya Chopra said Ranveer Singh had signed the movie before Sushant worked with YRF.

Second, we come to Aditya Chopra, who’s being attacked by netizens over the death of Sushant Singh Rajput. Due to overwhelming pressure from the public, he might find ways to avoid responsibility. In this case, he denied that Bhansali approached his company to offer Sushant lead role in the movie but indeed, Ranveer Singh (who also had a contract with YRF) was allowed to work with Bhansali after that.

If Bhansali never approached YRF for the movie, how could Ranveer join the project in lead role?

Also, this was not the first time Sushant Singh Rajput lost major films with Bhansali to Ranveer Singh. The movie Padmavat was also made by Bhansali and he once again shared that he offered Sushant for the role initially. However, Ranveer Singh, one more time, was the one to be chosen.

What’s more, it’s difficult to understand why Sushant encountered so many date issues while working with YRF that he couldn’t take promising projects from other filmmakers. Not mentioning the film Bajirao Mastani which records contradictory statements by two sides, Sushant was affirmed unable to join Ramleela and Padmavat due to his unavailability of dates.

This problem was not seen in any production houses Sushant signed a contract with after he left YRF. And there must be reasons why he left Aditya Chopra’s company in mid-way.

Ranveer once again took the movie Padmavat as Sushant had date issues.

Meanwhile, Aditya explained that Ranveer Singh was chosen for Bajirao Mastani before Sushant Singh Rajput signed contract with YRF. This was hard to believe because Ranveer Singh was not the first option of Bhansali for the lead role in his movie. It’s not until March 2014 that Ranveer Singh was reported to join the film. On the other hand, Sushant had worked with YRF since Shuddh Desi Romance in 2013. The movie Detective Byomkesh Bakshy was also launched in this year. We haven’t had details of the contract between Sushant and YRF yet, but Sushant appeared to sign a deal with YRF before March 2014.
