Producer Ramesh Taurani revealed that he had offered actor Sushant Singh Rajput a film but refused to comment further on the matter. Taurani, Nikkhil Advani and Sushant’s agent Uday Singh Gauri were on a four-way conference call for the narration of a film, on the afternoon of June 13, a day before the actor was found dead.
Taurani said, “I was but I don’t want to comment on it.”
About Sushant’s mental health, Taurani said, “I was calling him on the phone, mujhe kaise maalum padega?”
Meanwhile, Sushant’s agent, Uday Singh Gauri gave more details about this particular conversation. “We did a narration where Nikkhil Advani narrated an idea to him. You should actually corroborate this with Nikkhil Advani and Ramesh Taurani too. They had called me and I had called Sushant. It was a four-way conference call between Nikkhil Advani, Ramesh Taurani, myself and Sushant.”
Gauri continued, “I was on the call but I was just hearing because the narration was being given by Nikkhil. Nikkhil was talking, Sushant was talking and Ramesh ji was talking. He (Sushant) was asking the right questions.”
Gauri added, “Nikkhil would ask as to what he understood. And he would say that I have understood till this point. Then he would take the conversation forward. So it was that kind of a conversation, it wasn’t very long.”
Sushant’s death will now be investigated by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
