Aditya Chopra: Paani shelved due to creative differences with Shekhar Kapur


Mumbai: The film Paani was not made because of creative differences with Shekhar Kapoor and had nothing to do with Sushant Singh Rajput, said the filmmaker Aditya Chopra, in his recorded statement with the Mumbai Police on Saturday pertaining to the deceased actor’s suicide case.

As per the police involved in the case, Chopra was questioned about his movie Paani that was shelved later. The film that was to be directed by Shekhar Kapoor, had announced Sushant Singh Rajput in the lead role.

The police recorded statements of 35 others before him, including the actor’s family members, people from the film fraternity including casting Mukesh Chhabra, business manager Shruti Modi, PR manager Ankita Tehlani, actor Rhea Chakraborty, filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, among others.

In a tweet to Union Home Minister Amit Shah earlier, Rhea Chakraborty had requested for CBI inquiry in the case. The actor was found dead at his Mumbai residence on 14 June.

YRF didn’t stop Sushant from working with other filmmakers says Aditya

has told the police that the production house did not stop deceased actor Sushant Singh Rajput from working with other filmmakers in the industry. was questioned by the investigating team from Bandra police station on Saturday at the Versova police station for over four hours.

Chopra was summoned by police as allegations surfaced that the production house with whom the deceased actor had a three-film contract did not allow Rajput to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Police are also investigating the angle that Rajput had left YRF mid-way while he he had a three-film contract with the production house.

While being under contract with YRF, Rajput had allegedly lost roles in some major films offered by filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, whereas Ranveer Singh who was also under contract with YRF was allowed to work with Bhansali by YRF.

A police source revealed Chopra said in his statement that before Rajput signed the contract with YRF, Bhansali had already signed Ranveer Singh for the film so there was no way that talent management of YRF did not allow Rajput to work in the film.

Bhansali, who was questioned last week by the investigating team, revealed that he had offered four films to Rajput which were Ram-Leela, Bajirao Mastani, Padmaavat and a fourth film which didn’t take off. One of the first films offered by to Rajput, Goliyon ki Rasleela: Ram-Leela, according to Chopra was signed by Ranveer Singh before Sushant even signed the contract with YRF for three films.
