Sushant Singh Rajput in Befikre

Sushant Singh Rajput is currently busy garnering awards for his performance in ‘M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story’. There were reports that he was the first choice for Aditya Chopra’s directorial ‘Befikre’. However, recently in an interview, he cleared that the movie was not offered to him. He also went on to say that if it was offered to him, he wouldn’t have done it.


When asked about ‘Befikre’ being offered to him, Sushant said, “Let me clear it once and for all, I was never offered ‘Befikre’. But had I been offered, I wouldn’t have done it. I know it’s easier to decide after the results are out but I have a reason. If the same production is offering me niche films like ‘Byomkesh Bakshy’, I would do it. And I would also do a ‘Paani’ where Shekhar Kapur will be a raising a very important, immediate issue.”

“If ‘Befikre’ was representing the new-age youth of India and romance as what it was claiming, it would have been great irrespective of the box-office numbers. But unfortunately, it didn’t do that and hence I would not be interested. I am not suggesting that films should only reflect reality (like ‘Pink’, ‘Neerja’ or Dhoni biopic.) They could also be fanciful films like ‘The Jungle Book’ (2016), which was also very popular. But it’s extremely important to know and then claim what you have made,” he further added.


There have also been reports of his cold war with Ranveer Singh. Talking about it, he said, “Probably, it’s because we are about the same age and because I opted out of the old management company (Aditya Chopra’s company) and he decided otherwise and so comparisons can be made.”

Sushant will now next be seen in ‘Raabta’ which also stars Kriti Sanon.
