When news of Shekhar Kapur’s most ambitious project ‘Paani’ had been shelved, it was a devastating moment for many. However by the sounds of things, it was signed lead Sushant Singh Rajput who lost out the most.
Having begun some vigorous preparations for the project from the beginning, Singh had been put in some very difficult situations. Reported by��Box Office Capsule, the actor explained, “For almost a year, I was preparing for it. I rejected a lot of offers to work on it. The time I spent with Shekhar was like doing 10 years of an acting course.”
He went on to add, “It was the most exciting period of my career as it was an ambitious project. I regret that it’s not happening, it taught me a lot and made me mature as an actor.”
Rumours had it that as creative differences between the director and production company couldn’t come to an agreement, the project ended up falling through. Despite Singh losing out on some great films from the past, doesn’t mean to say he’ll have the same fate in the future.
Singh is currently gearing up for what seem’s to be the film of his life, recreating the role of Indian cricket capitain, MS Dhoni, in his biopic ‘MS Dhoni: The Untold Story’, which is set to hit cinemas on 30th September.
