The tragic demise of Sushant Singh Rajput has sent shockwaves across the nation. While we are seeing CBI probe in SSR's death case, popular filmmaker Sanjay Gupta has spoke about the late actor's demise and said that he was a bankable star. Talking to E Times, "They welcomed me. I am also an outsider, I don't have a family in the business. They have just made too much of an issue of this insider-outsider thing which is complete nonsense. It has been welcoming and there have hardly been any instances where everyone has ganged up and said let's teach this guy a lesson or make him sit at home. Nobody does that. Right up to his death, may God bless his soul but he was getting film offers but he was not doing it and that was his choice. It was not that he was shunned."
He further stated, "He was a star. Sushant Singh Rajput was not someone, who was climbing the ladder actor, he could sell films on his name. He was a bankable star but what has happened is truly disgusting. Leave the boy and his family alone. We don't need that spectacle on national television every day and you are right, there's someone new coming out every day and discussing new. Who are these people and how do they matter? Where were they when Sushant was there and now they are coming out and speaking. Everyone's looking at it from their point of view, their own perspective and how does it benefit their perspective. I don't think, it's out of any love for Sushant that they are coming forward and giving their views. Everyone's washing their hands in it."
Talking about Sanjay Gupta's upcoming film Mumbai Saga, it will show the transformation of Bombay turning into Mumbai. It is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar and Anuradha Gupta under the banners of T-Series and White Feather Films.
