But according to the police officer, he denied the allegations.
According to the filmmaker’s statement to the cops, Sushant was busy shooting for Yash Raj Films’ Pani and he refused the offer. The police officer said-
The director wanted his full attention for two of his big films but as Rajput was busy and refused to work, Bhansali did not ask him again.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali also said that he had met Sushant last in 2016, and they weren’t in touch after that. The filmmaker also added that they were not close to each other and he wasn’t aware of his personal details.
