In more alarming news that only Kangana Ranaut seems to be privy to yet claims is available in the “public domain”; the actress has alleged that Karan Johar had deliberately signed Sushant Singh Rajput for Drive to work with him “for three years”, jeopardise the film, ensure that no exhibitor would buy it and declare to the world that he’s a “flop star”, and that he did all this to fulfill the agenda of his cousin and childhood friend, Aditya Chopra, who, she again claims, had made Sushant sign an “evil contract” to push Ranveer Singh’s prospects in Bollywood.
In part of her no-holds-barred, scarcely believable interview to Republic TV, Kangana Ranaut said, “Why? Because Sushant doesn’t know how to do chaploosi? Is this why they sabotaged his career? Then they had a big showdown (when YRF had pulled out of producing Paani, SSR’s movie with Shekhar Kapur) and Aditya Chopra told him, ‘We will never work with you.’”
“Now, Aditya doesn’t work with him but his best friend, his childhood friend, Karan Johar comes into the picture. Very strategically, he hires him and shoots for this film for three years, and then he declares to the world that he is ‘such a flop star, I can’t sell the film to exhibitors,’” declared Kangana, questioning the validity of KJo’s alleged remarks when Sushant had delivered a “blockbuster (clean hit, actually) like M.S Dhoni: The Untold Story. “Let’s have a conversation with exhibitors and producers. I want to know the business and financial mathematics,” she added.
Claiming that Karan Johar had dumped Drive, Sushant Singh Rajput’s last film, Kanagan went on to elaborate, “He said, ‘I can’t sell this film with this flop star.’ This was the whole business racket that he has created which declared his films as hits and big films like Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, Chhichhore and MS Dhoni: The Untold Story as semi-hits. His whole circle started to print and spread these rumours that Sushant is finished. Now, this is in the public domain. You can see that Drive was not released and only media reports that Sushant is a flop actor and Karan Johar is unable to find a buyer for his film. Yash Raj Films and Dharma Productions systematically work with each other and in sync with each other – whom to promote, whom to demote, whom to destroy.”
