A few years ago, Sushant Singh Rajput had signed a film titled Chanda Mama Door Ke. The film was supposed to be directed by Sanjay Puran Singh and it was a space drama. The actor had reportedly opted out of the film as it was getting delayed and dates were an issue.
But now, director Sanjay Puran Singh plans to revive the film and wants to make it as a tribute to Sushant. While talking to Mid-day, he said, “The film is not shelved. I hope I will be able to translate on screen what I have visualised in my head and put on paper. That said, I am not reviving it right away as it has not been even a year to Sushant’s passing; his loss has been emotionally exhausting.”
“Whenever I make the film, it will be a tribute to Sushant. He was so attached to the script that I owe this to him. He had given a lot of inputs to the (material),” he added.
The filmmaker further stated, “I can’t think of a replacement for Sushant. Many suggested that I turn it into a web series, but I want to retain it as a film. It is meant for the big screen.”
