He revealed that at the time the actor was working with Yash Raj Films on Shekhar Kapur’s Paani and refused to work with him. So, Bhansali did not ask him again.

As per reports, Bhansali said that he first met Rajput in 2016 for discussing the projects. Since it didn’t pan out, he didn’t have any conversation with him later on. The filmmaker stated that he wasn’t close to the actor so he didn’t know about his depression either. With Bhansali’s statement, 30 statements have been recorded in Sushant’s death case.
