Kapur’s statement could further give clarity on issues if any, that Rajput might have been facing. Shekhar and Sushant collaborated for ambitious project Paani which was shelved in 2015 after Yah Raj Films backed out as the producers. In 2016, he tweeted, “Am as devastated as u that Paani did not get made @itsSSR but I’ve never met an actor that worked so hard in preparing for a part as you did.” Also Read - Is Sushant Singh Rajput’s Dil Bechara Co-Star Sanjana Sanghi Quitting Bollywood?

While mourning Sushant’s death, Shekhar Kapur had written that he knew the stories of people who let him down and also said what happened to him is their karma and not his. Taking to Twitter, he tweeted, “I knew the pain you were going through. I knew the story of the people that let you down so bad that you would weep on my shoulder. I wish I was around the last 6 months. I wish you had reached out to me. What happened to you was their Karma. Not yours. #SushantSinghRajput.” (sic).
