Before Ayushmaan and Tabu signed Sriram Raghvan’s next, there was Sushant Singh Rajput who was offered the film earlier, as per the grapevine. But he turned it down.
“Sriram has been keen to work with Sushant since some time. When he went to meet the actor, Sushant had expressed interest in the film but later opted out giving some vague reasons. He will start shooting for Chanda Mama Door Ke shortly and perhaps there was a date clash but it seems his attitude has upset the filmmaker. Earlier Varun Dhawan and Harshvardhan Kapoor too had opted out of the thriller.” says a source.
