Vivek Agnihotri revealed that he signed Late Sushant Singh Rajput for ‘Hate Story’, but Ekta Kapoor’s ‘Balaji didn’t release him, in other words, didn’t let go of him so that Sushant could go ahead and pursue his Bollywood dreams.
Vivek Agnihotri was clear in his words that ‘Hate Story’ could have been Sushant Singh Rajput’s debut flick in Bollywood if Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Telefilms had let go of him in time.
Going in detail, filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri made a disclosure that Sushant Singh Rajput was all set to make his Bollywood debut with ‘Hate Story’, but things didn’t go as planned, because Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Telefilms did not let go of him. For the unaware, Sushant was working with Ekta for the superhit TV show ‘Pavitra Rishta’, at the time, his 1st TV show.
Vivek Agnihotri made this disclosure through Twitter,
“I had signed him for ‘Hate Story’ – his first movie contract. But Balaji didn’t release him.”
Vivek was told that he could have offered films to Sushant whilst the actor was still alive, to which Agnihotri had responded with the tweet.
Have a look at the tweet:
Sushant Singh Rajput committed suicide on Sunday that caused his death and while a suicide note hasn’t been recovered from the actor, there are speculations that lack of work i.e. flicks could be a reason that forced the actor to take this drastic step. Sushant’s fans have been raising questions on various celebrities and Vivek Agnihotri was just one of them.
Sushant’s fans have been accusing Bollywood celebrities like Karan Johar and Salman Khan of banning Sushant Singh Rajput, which in turn led to the late actor being depressed and eventually killing himself by committing suicide. A lawyer has recently filed a criminal complaint against them, with Kangana Ranaut as a witness.
Sushant’s untimely demise has cast a doubt on the working practices of Bollywood.
