Previously, rumors swirled that the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput was actually the filmmaker’s first choice for the film. Providing clarification on this, Kapoor revealed that he too heard the rumors and it was completely untrue. The director has revealed that he is not starting casting for his film until the script for the film has been written. He started casting for ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’ after Sushant passed away.
Last month, his film, “Kedarnath”, which starred Sushant and Sara Ali Khan, completed three years. Remembering the late actor on the special occasion, Abhishek shared a throwback photo with Sushant from the sets of the film along with a long heartfelt message.
Check out the post here:
He wrote: “It still makes my hair stand on end to think of the passion and utter dedication it took to bring this saga to life. But the fruits of his labor taste the best when you know you have dropped every last shred of sweat to sow them in the first place.. Hugely grateful to the entire cast and crew for braving this venture to the T.’
Elaborating further, he added, “In the midst of all the gratitude and love, I can’t help but remember the grave loss of this extraordinary soul that remains etched in the legacy of this film. I can still feel Mansoor there in the sacred mountain landscapes looking at me with his signature smile reflecting all the innocence and beauty of this world.
