Though it’s been three years since Sushant Singh Rajput passed away, it is still hard to believe that SSR is no more with us. Today, on the occasion of the actor’s third death anniversary, social media is abuzz with fans and people remembering Sushant with his priceless memories. The late actor was one of the most talented stars in Bollywood, however, there was a time when he got replaced in blockbuster moves. Sushant even lost 12 films in a year.
In an old interview with DNA, the M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story star recalled how he missed out on 12 films in only one year. He was quoted as saying, “I was doing many films and they are all releasing now. (Laughs) I don’t want to name them. What happens is, when I give my word to someone, and he’s delaying (not because he wants to, but because of a particular reason) and I get to understand it, I won’t ditch. So be it the biggest film with the biggest studio or the smallest film, I won’t leave another film. So unfortunately, because of the two films that I was doing and that didn’t happen, I lost out on 12 films in the last one year. One film didn’t happen and the other was put off by a few months. And these films are the films that we generally talk about these days. Let’s not get into all that.” ALSO READ: ‘Sushant Singh Rajput Was MURDERED’ Autopsy Staff Makes A SHOCKING Claim; Reveals, ‘There Were Marks Of Beating On His Body’

Sushant cleared he did not walk out of the project. The late actor also revealed that he got replaced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali in his blockbuster films 'Ram Leela' and 'Bajirao Mastani.’
