In an interview to Republic TV, Kangana Ranaut had earlier alleged that Aditya Chopra had threatened her career in Bollywood after she had declined his offer to star opposite Salman Khan in Sultan. “The director came to my house and narrated the script. I had a meeting with Aditya Chopra… just so that I could express my apologies in person and he was fine at the time. But later, a news piece came out saying, ‘Kangana said no to Sultan.’ And then he messaged me, ‘How dare you? You say No to me.’ And then he told me, ‘You are finished,'” said Kangana.
Meanwhile, Mukhesh Chhabra has disclosed in an interview to Pinkvilla that Sushant was aware that Dil Bechara was headed for a direct-digital release, and was even happy with the decision. Dil Bechara, Sushant Singh Rajput’s last film, costarring Sajana Sanghi, will release directly on an OTT platform on 24th July 2020, but its access will be available to everyone, even those who aren’t subscribers of said OTT platform.
