Post Sushant Singh Rajput’s death due to suicide there were reports of the actor being out of work. However, filmmaker Rumi Jaffery has opened up about the same and has claimed of these news reports to be null and void. As per reports in Deccan Chronicle the actor was signed for a movie to be directed by Rumi and produced by Vashu Bhagnani. He has also confirmed during conversation with the publication of the actor not suffering with financial crisis.
Claiming all the reports false, Rumi said, “I was disturbed by some news channels insinuating that he had no work and was depressed because of that. He was doing my film. A lot of people, who knew that he was visiting my house often, also wanted to work with him, but he had refused even though he was being paid a lot of money. He had enough money and was not short of it at all. Actors get money today for appearances etc., too apart from doing films.”
Also in his conversation he further revealed of the late actor meeting the director at his residence and being totally excited about the project. “I spoke to him a while back. He had been coming home and meeting my family; I had gone to his terrace flat as well and had a few meetings with him overlooking the sea and he was very positive about starting work,” he adds.
Rumi also shared how his family too was in shock with the news of the actor passing away, “My wife and children have been crying ever since they heard the news.” ALSO READ: Sushant Singh Rajput Demise: This Old VIDEO Of The Late Actor Enjoying A Coldplay Track Will Move you To Tears
