Speculative reports can often cause embarrassment for those involved, and that’s exactly what seems to have happened in this case. The much in-demand Rajkummar Rao was in the news last week, when it was reported that he “walked out” of Nitesh Tiwari’s next directorial, because he didn’t want to play “second fiddle” to Sushant Singh Rajput.
The report created unnecessary awkwardness between Rajkummar and Sushant, who have been friends since they shared screen space in Kai Po Che years ago. The speculative report would have one believe that since Rajkummar’s stature as an actor has changed from the times of Kai Po Che, he was no longer comfortable playing a secondary role to Sushant. However, Rajkummar completely refutes the report saying, “This is false news, since I was never offered this film.”
