7 Bollywood Movies In Which Sushant Singh Rajput Was The Original Choice

Its Sushant Singh Rajput’s birthday today and his fans are remembering him in the manner best suited to them. The Bollywood actor gave some really good performances in his short career and we really wish we could have seen more of him. It was the devastating day of 14 June 2020 on which he was found hanging in his Bandra apartment, though police was not able to recover any suicide note but they found some medicines which confirmed that the actor was suffering from depression. Many stories did rounds after the demise of Sushant Singh Rajput as it was said that some big producers banned him while it was also said that the Kedarnath actor lost some movies due to nepotism.

Every actor accepts some movies and reject some movies due to some reason and today we are going to tell you about some movies for which Sushant Singh Rajput was the original choice but he was not able to work in those movies.

1. Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela (2013)

Sushant Singh Rajput was the first choice for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela but as the Kedarnath actor has signed a contract with the Yash Chopra banner he was not able to work in this movie. Later on, the actor Ranveer Singh was roped in for the lead role.

3. Bajirao Mastani (2015)

Sanjay Leela Bhansali wanted to cast Sushant Singh Rajput in Bajirao Mastani also but at that time SSR was busy with Shekhar Kapoor’s Paani. Sushant was not only attending workshops but also had sported a special look for the movie because of which he refused to work in Bajirao Mastani. While Bhansali made the movie with Ranveer Singh in the lead, Sushant Singh Rajput was quite unlucky as Paani was also shelved.

Sushant Singh Rajput was also among those actors who were offered the role but things didn’t work out and now it is being heard that Farhan Akhtar has been finalized for the role.

Chhichhore was the last theatrical release of Sushant Singh Rajput which was a very big hit and the biggest irony is that in this movie Sushant is the one who is advocating that people should not commit suicide.

Sushant’s last movie was Dil Bechara which had a digital release due to the coronavirus pandemic, the movie was loved by the fans and it won’t be wrong to say that it will always remain close to their heart.
