Was Sushant Facing Financial Hardships?

“Sushant Singh Rajput Began  Hearing Voices ...Rhea Got Frightened  & Left”
Written by Subhash K . Jha

While  I  never saw Sushant Singh Rajput ever being  stressed  about money there is  a  strong  rumour after his death that his plush  home which he had rented  lately  was  costing him a bomb to maintain. And  apparently  Sushant  was  unable to  keep  up with the  payment.

 If  this is true, then I can  only regret the fact that Sushant never bothered  with money.  He was the only actor I  knew who  didn’t hike his price after every success. In fact for the two  Yash Raj films that he   did Shuddh Desi  Romance  and Byomkesh Bakshi he got paid a pittance. And  for the  two years that he  invested in Shekhar Kapur’s Paani(which  never got made) Sushant  had no income. Is Yash Raj  listening?

   When I brought  up money and financial security   with  Sushant  he said to me. “I can’t think in terms of mathematics when it comes to my work and that’s why I enjoy it so much.”

What he  regretted was being ignored for awards   for his sterling  performances  in  Dhoni and Sonechiriya.  “If I’m there to witness the awards I do feel slightly awkward when I don’t win. A bit of acknowledgment from your folks could be a nice feeling. Having said that I getting or not getting an award does not in any manner affect the way I go about my next project or my equation with my work. I always feel money flowing from irrelevance to relevance is a good thing.Whatever films I will do and people expecting would watch will strive for originality and entertainment value.”
