September 9, 2020: Bollywood filmmaker Anurag Kashyap took to Twitter to make an explosive revelation as he admitted about not wanting to work with Sushant Singh Rajput. Opening up about his decision, the filmmaker replied to a user who questioned the role of “Bollywood” in SSR’s tragic demise and shared screenshots of his conversation with the late actor’s manager on May 22 and June 14.





He shared his chats with the late actor’s manager, explaining that he had refused to work with Sushant for his ‘own reasons’. “I am sorry that I am doing this but this chat is from three weeks before he passed away. Chat with his manager on 22 May .. havent don’t it so far but feel the need now .. yes I didn’t want to work with him for my own reasons,” he wrote with the screenshot.





The chat has Sushant’s manager requesting him to cast the actor in his next film. “I know u don’t like people pitching actors :) I feel I can take that chance with u.. please keep sushant singh Rajput in mind if u feel he fits in anywhere with u. As an audience ok i’d love to see you two create something great,” the text says.



To this, Anurag has replied, “He is too problematic man. I have known him from before he started out and got him his film Kai Po Che.”





He also shared his conversation with the manager from June 14 when Sushant died. “It will show you things if you want to see. It feels horrible to do this but can’t keep it back .. and for those as well who think we didn’t care for the family . As honest as I can be .. judge me all you want,” the filmmaker tweeted.



The manager’s message says, “…this lockdown and helplessness to start working again did make matters worse I also think. Don’t be hard on yourself .. I swear he held you right up there for your honestly and ur own term of leading ur own life. Maybe he rest in peace.” Anurag also asked about the actor’s family and also explained not casting him in a film. He asks if Sushant has family and on being informed that he has sisters, he asks whether they are younger or older and married. “It must be so hard on them,” he says.
