The untimely demise of Sushant Singh Rajput has left the entertainment industry shocked. While he created a huge fanbase by delivering blockbusters like Chhichhore and MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, the actor had discussed a big project with producer Kamal Jain, whom he worked earlier during the biopic of the former Indian cricket skipper. Talking to PinkVilla, producer Kamal Jain said, "I knew Sushant for 9 years now, we did Dhoni together. He was really an intelligent man who knew exactly what he wanted. Tell me one person who is not an industry insider who has done so much of work in his first 5 years in Bollywood."
Kamal Jain revealed that he and Sushant discussed a big project in the last week and said, "He had 4 films in his hand which was to start immediately after lockdown. I spoke to him last week and we were supposed to meet as soon as lockdown got a little more relaxed. One of my films was with him, it was a big project which I can’t name right now but we spoke on the phone about it."
He went on to say that post the success of Chhichhore, SSR wanted to big budget-films. "After Chichhore, he used to read like 15-20 scripts in a month but he was very selective and wanted to do big scale films now. On the phone, we discussed about his projects, and he was quite focused on all the films in his hand, hence, I am surprised and shocked when I got the news of his demise this way," Kamal said. Speaking about his last week conversation with Sushant, the producer said, "I spoke to him last week itself and it was about the film, we were planning together. He sounded very positive about the film too. He was a little disturbed because of lockdown. He was a workaholic, he would like to work 24/7, and now suddenly locked at home, so he was a little tense because of that."
RIP Sushant Singh Rajput.
